How to implement SAML SSO to access Dashboard from Solution Manager


I am taking this opportunity to write this blog post to for Solution Manager Community. Solution manager offers Dashboard capability to monitor SAP systems availability. This Dashboard gives us Key metrics on our systems availability. With this blog post I am trying to demonstrate how ADFS (Active Directory Federation services) can be used to setup SAML SSO to access these Solution manager dashboards.


Objective – To setup SAML SSO to SAP uptime availability  Dashboard


Prerequisite :

  • Dashboard is setup in solution manager. For more information

  • Activate below services




  • Role require to access the dashboard : SAP_SM_DSH_DISP


Steps :

We already have setup SAML in reference system  and we can reuse/import  the same configuration in Solution manager system.

Please refer below steps

Log into system that already has keys set up 

Transaction SAML2

Export Configuration

Check Export signature and encryption PSEs

Click Download Configuration and save the file somewhere

Import the config

Click Trusted providers tab -> in edit mode  select below Identity provider

Import the primary signing certificate

In Signature tab import Token certificate from your Ad administrator

  • Click on Authentication Requirements tab and change
  1. Assertion Consumer Service to Application url
  2. Binding to HTTP POST


  • Restart ICM



  • Cleanup the browser cookies

and open the Dashboard url

Conclusion – ADFS can be used to setup SAML SSO to access Solution manager Dashboards
