Combine SAML-SSO and Username/Password via Login page?


Level 1

Author v6.5.11




We have successfully configured SAML for the AEM Author system 6.5.11. However, for various reasons we also need the default login with local username and password.

Is it at all possible in AEM to combine both and make them available for selection on the default login page? Maybe with AEM 7? Or is there already a checkbox somewhere for this case that we have overlooked?

Thanks for your answer.

With SAML in place the visitor is redirected to the IdP-Login page when going to http://localhost:4502/libs/granite/core/content/login.html


I am looking for a way that the user can choose on the login page to use already present local username/password or SSO via SAML and smartcard (different credentials).

then you have to adjust the root path for SAML.

use /content for path

Make sure in SAML configuration root path for the login should be configured with needed conditions

Do not have / as the SAML configuration instead have the project specific configuration in that case you can directly access the login page.
