This article describes how to integrate OneLogin as an SSO provider with FileCloud.



Add the following line to the apache configuration file.

Alias /simplesaml "<PATH TO FileCloud WEBROOT>/thirdparty/simplesaml/www"

Where "<PATH TO FileCloud WEBROOT>" refers to WEB ROOT Folder where FileCloud is installed.


Following are the typical entries in Linux and windows, but can change if the FileCloud is installed under a different WEB ROOT Folder.


Open the c:\xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-filecloud.conf config file

Add the following line at the end of the config file (httpd-filecloud.conf)

Alias /simplesaml "/xampp/htdocs/thirdparty/simplesaml/www"

Save the file and Stop and Start the Webserver from the FileCloud Control Panel.


Go to /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf

Add the following line within <VirtualHost *:80> for HTTP connection or <VirtualHost *.443> for HTTPS connection. You can place it under the line DocumentRoot /var/www/html

Alias /simplesaml /var/www/html/www/thirdparty/simplesaml/www --→ (Ubuntu 16.04 and higher versions)

Alias /simplesaml /var/html/www/thirdparty/simplesaml/www --→> (Ubuntu 14.04 and lower versions)

Restart the apache webserver. /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
