To only display the SSO log-in option:

In order to skip the FileCloud login page and send the user directly to the SAML SSO page you must add a setting to the cloudconfig.php file, as shown below. You can configure this option for the user portal login page and the Admin portal login page.

This configuration option is available starting with FileCloud Version 19.3, It supports skipping the login page when the user accesses FileCloud with a domain name or with a full URL. 

  1. In the Admin portal, go to Customization, and select the General  tab, and then the Login sub-tab.

  2. Check Show SSO Link and Show Login Options, and save your changes.
  3. Open the configuration file:

    Linux: /var/www/config/cloudconfig.php
  4. To only display the SSO log-in option:

    define("TONIDOCLOUD_SSO_DIRECT_ONLY", "1");

    An earlier version of this option is also effective in version of FileCloud prior to 19.3, but this redirect is only effective if the user specifies a domain name rather than a full URL. Instead of the above setting, use:

    define("TONIDOCLOUD_SSO_DIRECT", "1");

    When users enter the log-in page they will see:

    Linux: /var/www/config/cloudconfig.php
  2. To only display the SSO log-in option:

Enter:

 define ("TONIDOCLOUD_SSO_DIRECT_ONLY_ADMIN", "1");

An earlier version of this option is also effective in versions of FileCloud prior to 20.1, but this redirect is only effective if the user specifies a domain name rather than a full URL. Instead of the above setting, use:

 define("TONIDOCLOUD_SSO_DIRECT_ADMIN", "1");
