  3. Make sure that the certificate is configured with SHA256 as the SHA Fingerprint and has an X.509 PEM formatted RSA Certificate.

    Fonolo can work with PEM or DER formatted RSA certificates. DSA certificates are not currently supported.

  4. Save your changes, and then Download the certificate to a safe place for use later in setting up SSO in the Fonolo Portal.

Set Up the Fonolo Portal

Next, you must configure the Fonolo Portal for SSO.

    2. Paste the Issuer URL that was saved in the OneLogin Portal into Issuer URL.
    3. Paste the SAML 2.0 Endpoint (HTTPS) that was saved into SAML Endpoint.
    4. Select Browse next to the IdP Certificate field and select the X.509 Certificate that was downloaded. The certificate uploads and processes automatically.
    5. In Request Binding, select HTTP Redirect.
