    4. Enter the data provided by your Identity Provider:
      • Sign-in page URL – The IdP’s landing page for authentication requests, which is the full Identity Provider URL path. It must begin with https://.
      • Sign-in binding – Select Redirect or POST.
      • Sign-out page URL – This is the URL where the user is redirected upon log-out.

      • Identity Provider Entity ID – Location of the globally unique name for your IdP as a SAML entity.
      • Verification certificate – The IdP’s public certificate used to verify incoming responses from the IdP. You can add it in either of the following ways:
