Enable SAML 2.0 Integration in PeopleSoft

Eliminate PeopleSoft Authentication Challenges Without Customizations

Identity Providers like ADFS, Office 365, Shibboleth, OKTA, and Azure all use the SAML standard

However, PeopleSoft lacks the support required to integrate with a SAML Identity Provider. As a result, PeopleSoft applications tend to be isolated from enterprise Single Sign-On (SSO) strategies.

With single-sign-on becoming a requirement across all enterprise applications, organizations are struggling to include PeopleSoft. As an alternative, extensive customizations and home-grown solutions are being explored – both of which add unnecessary cost and complexity.

Key Challenges

PeopleSoft applications lack native SAML support. As a result, PeopleSoft applications cannot connect with SAML supporting ID providers and are likely to be alienated from other enterprise applications. Most off-the-shelf SSO providers are unaware of this limitation and suggest custom development, which is costly, time-consuming, and often requires the purchase of additional hardware. 
Either creating customizations to simulate SAML communication or building an SSO from scratch adds significant complexity as customizations are typically costly, fragile, and require frequent maintenance
Enforcing strong password parameters in PeopleSoft is not possible unless you are leveraging your ID provider. Otherwise users may have multiple, weak passwords (for various PSFT applications) that are easy to crack.
Manually provisioning a database as users come and go in an organization is extremely time consuming
Login screens can halt a user’s progression through a workflow. Users waiting on password resets is a significant time waster in every organization

Why Appsian

Appsian’s PeopleSoft SSO Connector solves this challenge by providing the only SAML integration layer for PeopleSoft. There is no other native SAML solution available in the market.
