Add a SAML Configuration

The following feature is not supported in Tenable.io Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) environments. For more information, see the FedRAMP Product Offering.

Required User Role: Administrator

You can manually enter the details for your SAML configuration or you can upload a metadata.xml file that you download from your identity provider (IdP).

Before you begin:

Note: Tenable does not currently support a SP-Initiated SAML flow. Because it must be initiated from the Identity Provider side, navigating directly to https://cloud.tenable.com does not allow SSO. Additionally, all users must have an account configured in Tenable.io that matches their SSO login.

To add a new SAML configuration:

  1. In the upper-left corner, click the Menu button.

    The left navigation plane appears.

  2. In the left navigation plane, click Settings.

    The Settings page appears.

  3. Click the SAML tile.

    The SAML page appears.

  4. In the action bar, click Create.

    The SAML Settings page appears.

  5. Do one of the following:

  6. Copy the URL from the IdP URL box.

  7. In your SAML identity provider's application, paste the URL in the target URL box.

  8. Click Save.

    Tenable.io saves your SAML configuration.
