LastPass

Learn how to configure a connection to LastPass via SAML.

Each SSO Identity Provider requires specific information to create and configure a new Connection. Often, the information required to create a Connection will differ by Identity Provider.

To create a LastPass SAML Connection, you’ll need an IdP Metadata XML file.

Start by logging in to your WorkOS dashboard and browse to the “Organizations” tab on the left hand navigation bar.

Select the organization you’d like to configure a LastPass SAML Connection for, and select “Manually Configure Connection” under “Identity Provider”.

Select “LastPass SAML” from the Identity Provider dropdown, enter a descriptive name for the connection, and then select the “Create Connection” button.

WorkOS provides the ACS URL, SP Entity ID, and SP Metadata URL. They’re readily available in your Connection Settings in the WorkOS Dashboard.

Next, provide the IdP Metadata file. Normally, this information will come from your enterprise customer’s IT Management team when they set up your application’s SAML 2.0 configuration in their LastPass admin console. But, should that not be the case during your setup, the next steps will show you how to obtain it.

Log in to LastPass, go to the admin console and select “Applications” on the top navigation. Then select “SSO apps” from the left side navigation. If your application is already created, select it from the list of applications and move to Step 2. Otherwise, select “Add app”.

Give your SAML App a descriptive name and select “Continue”.

Under the “Set up LastPass” section of the “Configure app” modal, input the ACS URL from the WorkOS Dashboard Connection details under “ACS”. Then click on “Advanced Settings”.

Under “Entity ID”, input the SP Entity ID from the WorkOS Dashboard Connection details. Next, under “SAML signature method”, select “SHA256”.
