To configure SAML for Roambi Business with ADFS:

  1. Edit your web.config file in the /adfs/ls directory to disable Basic Authentication:

        <add name="Forms" page="FormsSignIn.aspx" />
        <add name="Integrated" page="auth/integrated/" /> 
        <add name="TlsClient" page="auth/sslclient/" /> 
        <!-- <add name="Basic" page="auth/basic/" /> --> 
  2. Log in to Roambi Business using your Administrator credentials, and go to the Administration panel.
  3. Enable SSO, if you have not already done so:
    1. Click the Single Sign-On tab.
