Last updated 2018-02-10 ·Reference W-4222598 ·Reported By 0 users
When request signing certificate is Self-Signed certificate in SSO configuration instead of Default Certificate, HTTP URLs redirects to HTTPS do not work for SP initiated SSO.
1. Create a Self-signed certificate from Certificate and Key Management Store.
2. Create a SAML config and set "Request Signing Certificate" with the self-signed certifcate.
3. Set My domain and set SAML as the only login option.
4. Prepare a http url, for example, a link to an account id.
5. Logout of Salesforce.
6. Copy and paste any record URL as http:// link in browser address bar (from step 4).
(Open a private browser session if you dont see the error)
7. Usually this should take to login screen (eg. when using https:// link), however below error is thrown when a Self-Signed certificate is used in Single Sign-On Settings.
