Django SAML2 Plugin for URL redirection on Logout (usually to an IdP logout)

Project description


A plugin to redirect users to a URL (usually an ADFS logout URL) in django-saml2-auth


By default, django-saml2-auth only signs out users in the local Django application. For security reasons, the logout needs to be passed to the IdP (identity provider). Otherwise, a user who clicks the login button will be logged in again without providing a password (or otherwise). If you are able to sign the request (i.e. provide a cert and key), please see django-saml2-auth-signout-slo. If you are not able -- or do not want -- to sign the logout request, this plugin is your next-best option. Instead of a true Single SignOut, this plugin will let you redirect the user to the IdP's logout page, defaulting to the ADFS idpinitiatedsignin page.



    # ensure the plugin is loaded

# this is the "usual" config object from django-saml2-auth
    'DEFAULT_NEXT_URL': '/',
    'PLUGINS': {
        # use this package in lieu of DEFAULT signout plugin 
        'SINGOUT': ['REDIRECT'],
    # optionally specify the URL
    'LOGOUT_REDIRECT_URL': 'https://<>/<logout>


By default, this package redirects a user to <SSO Endpoint>/idpinitiatedsignon.aspx which provides manual login/logout on ADFS servers. Unless you're using an unconventional SSO path, this should work out-of-the-box.
