You can now login to ezeelogin GUI with ezeelogin URL and it will redirect to aws sso page. You must log in with aws sso credentails and it will redirect and log in to ezeelogin gui after successful authentication.


11. Finally, logged into the Ezeelogin GUI using SAML Authentication.

12. After logging  into the GUI, you  need to reset the password and security code of the saml user under Account>Password in order to ssh to the Ezsh shell

13. You can log in to Ezeelogin shell via Webssh shell or using any SSH client such as Putty or terminal etc.

WebSSH: Click on the 'Open Web SSH Console' icon to SSH via the browser

WebSSH terminal will open like below. Users can navigate the server group with the Up and Down arrow buttons and enter to login into the server.


Native SSH Client: After resetting the password and security code you can SSH to the Ezsh shell (using Terminal or Putty) with the SAML username.

14.  If you are SSH ing with 2FA  enabled  using Putty or Terminal it would prompt you to enter the 2FA codes, The 2FA  step can be disabled for SAML Authentication under Settings > Two Factor Authentication> Skip Two Factor Authentication for SAML.The user will be able to ssh without being prompted for the 2FA codes only if the user is  logged into the webpanel , otherwise if the user is not logged into the webpanel it would prompt for the 2FA codes.

15. It is recommended to use the webssh shell for the SAML authentication. The webssh shell is more convenient as the user would not have to open an ssh client such as putty/terminal and enter the username/password and 2FA codes. Using the webssh, the user can ssh from the webpanel itself and 2fa will not be prompted if you have enabled the Skip Two factor Authentication for SAML.

Note: SAML is an authentication mechanism for web applications. It's based on web protocols and it cannot be used for user authentication over SSH.


Saml authentication is not supported for slave if the URL is IP-based.If you want to authenticate  slave using saml you have to use domain name
