  5. Fill in the first two fields:
    1. Identifer (Entity ID):
    2. Reply URL (Assertion Consumer Service URL):
    3. Save and exit.
  6.  Edit the second box- User Attributes and Claims. Edit Name identifier format:
    1. Click Choose name identifier format and ensure it is set to Persistent in the drop down.

  7. Edit SAML Signing Certificate, ensure that Signing Algorithm is set to SHA-1.

  10. Please send the following to so we can complete the set up:

    2. Azure credentials for a test student and test teacher account so that we can check the integration is working. Please ensure that these credentials match the conventions in place for your other users.
