  2. Click Edit against Single Sign-On and update each field as directed in the table below:
     
    ID Provider Login URL Append the IdP ID  copied in the earlier procedure at the end of the below URL and copy the complete URL to this field.

    https://sso.connect.pingidentity.com...O.saml2?idpid=

    ID Provider Certificate Open the Signing Certificate that was downloaded in the earlier procedure in a notepad and copy its content to this field. Take care to keep certificate formatting intact in the text editor.
    Single Sign-On for Administrators Select.
    Failsafe for Administrators

    Select.

    Druva recommends enabling this fields initially.  Failsafe for Administrators enables the administrator to use both SSO and DCP password to access the DCP Console. This ensures access to the DCP Console even if SSO is impacted due to any change in the IdP.
