SAML 2.0 Integration For PeopleSoft SSO

Enable Seamless, Secure User Authentication For PeopleSoft


About SAML 2.0 Integration For PeopleSoft SSO


SAML 2.0 integration allows organizations to leverage enterprise identity providers (IDPs) like Active Directory and ADFS.

PeopleSoft lacks native SAML support, so implementing an “off-the-shelf” Single Sign-On like Okta, Azure AD, Ping Identity, etc., can present challenges. This typically results in PeopleSoft being isolated from an organization’s IAM (Identity and Access Management) strategy.

Appsian addresses the Oracle SAML challenge by delivering the SAML integration layer required to connect PeopleSoft, an Identity Provider, and your enterprise Single Sign-On (SSO). This solution is natively installed into PeopleSoft and does not require the use of customizations or proxy servers.


Customizations Are Not Ideal

  • Off-the-shelf SSO solutions need to be significantly modified to work with PeopleSoft. Organizations must build an extensive framework of additional customizations and hardware to simulate communication between PeopleSoft and their respective identity provider (ADFS, Shibboleth, etc.). In addition to prolonged implementation, customizations to SSO solutions are insecure, fragile, lack functionality for some transactions, and originate problems that are difficult to troubleshoot. They also require the procurement of extra infrastructure (reverse proxy server) resulting in project budget overruns.

No SAML Support Creates An Isolated Application

Without SAML-compatibility, PeopleSoft applications are often left out of enterprise-wide SSO initiatives. The isolation of PeopleSoft applications from the rest of the enterprise application stack can have several negative effects:

  • IT teams are faced with increased support costs associated with password resets
  • Manual user provisioning and deprovisioning without a centralized identity management
  • Lack of IdP-enforced governance policies (such as password strength renewals)
  • Reduced productivity due to downtime associated with password reset and recovery



Appsian’s PeopleSoft SSO Connector is designed to create a simple, extensible, and easy-to-maintain approach to the implementation of modern authentication and SSO technologies. The PeopleSoft SSO Connector supports identity federation through the implementation of related rules capable of responding to assertions/claims from SAML based id providers.

Appsian offers the ONLY solution that natively integrates SAML with PeopleSoft.

Enabling Single Sign-On in PeopleSoft eliminates the need for end users to utilize multiple passwords and empowers them to seamlessly transition between PeopleSoft and other enterprise applications using a single, strong login credential. It also empowers IT teams to centralize authentication management and makes it easy for them to provision password databases as employees come and go in the organization


Appsian’s PeopleSoft SSO Connector Runs INSIDE the Web Server for Unmatched Simplicity and Native SAML and Functionality
