Getting Started with SAML Jackson
SAML Jackson can be used with any web application to integrate the Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication.
There are two ways to integrate SAML Jackson with an application. Depending on your use case, you can choose either one of them.
As a separate service
The advantage of running a separate service is that you get all of our UI tooling (like the Admin Portal) with the service. The disadvantage is that you have to manage the operations of a separate service. If you are not using Node.js then this is the only option available to you.
As an NPM library
This is available if you are already developing your application using Node.js.
The advantage of embedding Jackson as an npm library is that you do not have to manage operations of a separate service. The disadvantage is that you do not readily get our UI tooling (like the Admin Portal) with this method.
