SAML plugin

A SAML authentication method overview can be found here.

The SlashDB SAML plugin adds support for SAML authentication.


SlashDB version >= 1.7.0 must be installed before the plugin can be installed. If you don't have SlashDB yet, see the chapter "Installation" for details.

From System Package

If SlashDB was installed from the DEB or RPM package, or if you have SlashDB running from a virtual machine or cloud image, then the easiest way to add SAML support is by downloading and installing the corresponding plugin package of the same type.

Debian or Ubuntu

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y ./slashdb-saml_1.1.0_amd64.deb

RedHat or CentOS

sudo dnf install -y ./slashdb-saml-1.1.0.x86_64.rpm

Once installation is complete, SlashDB will automatically restart for the changes to take effect.

From Python Wheel

If SlashDB was installed as a Python package then it's best to also install the SAML plugin as a Python package in the same environment.

Available wheel packages:

Download and install the package that matches your version of Python, for example:

/opt/slashdb/bin/pip install ./slashdb_saml-1.1.0-cp38-cp38-manylinux2014_x86_64.whl

After installation, SlashDB must be restarted.


For configuring and using SAML, see "SSO / SAML 2.0"


To update, install a newer version of the package.

Note After updating the core slashdb rpm/deb package you must reinstall plugins.
