Overview of SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language)

What is DigiExam and how does it work with SAML?

DigiExam is a digital assessment platform that allows students to write exams in a locked down environment.

DigiExam acts as a SAML Service Provider (SP) and offers only the Single Sign-On (SSO) service derived from SAML2 int. It supports only unsolicited login attempts which means there is no Identity Provider (IDP) discovery.

You can find our SP metadata at https://app.digiexam.com/api/v1/saml/metadata.xml (please note that this is not our entity Id).

To perform a SAML setup you will need to have an "Account manager" role on the organizations DigiExam page, this can be given by an already existing account manager in your organization or by DigiExam support staff. 

The following chart is an example of a school district with two schools that have integrated their G-suite organization to DigiExam:
