Container for the parameters to the CreateSAMLProvider operation. Creates an IAM resource that describes an identity provider (IdP) that supports SAML 2.0.
The SAML provider resource that you create with this operation can be used as a principal in an IAM role's trust policy to enable federated users who sign-in using the SAML IdP to assume the role. You can create an IAM role that supports Web-based single sign-on (SSO) to the AWS Management Console or one that supports API access to AWS.
When you create the SAML provider resource, you upload an a SAML metadata document that you get from your IdP and that includes the issuer's name, expiration information, and keys that can be used to validate the SAML authentication response (assertions) that the IdP sends. You must generate the metadata document using the identity management software that is used as your organization's IdP.
This operation requires Signature Version 4.
