Knowledge Anywhere supports IdP-initiated SSO and IT (Just In Time) Provisioning with LinkedIn Learning.
Step 1: Sign in to your LinkedIn Learning account as an administrator and go into Settings > Global Settings.
Step 2: Here you will find the Single Sign-On (SSO) settings. Expand to see Configure your identity provider SSO settings and click Download. This will download an XML file that you will need to input information into Knowledge Anywhere.
Step 3: Open the XML file and find the following parameters
- Entity ID
- Assertion Consumer Service (ACS )URL
Step 4: Sign in to your Knowledge Anywhere LMS Admin and navigate to Site > SAML Settings > Identity Provider. Input SP Entity ID and ACS URL.
- SP Name Should be LinkedIn Learning
- Note: SSO ID for LinkedIn Learning should be Email.
Click Save. Map any additional fields if desired. Knowledge Anywhere recommends mapping:
- First Name
- Last Name
Step 5: Download the IdP MetaData XML file.
Step 6: Go back to LinkedIn Learning Admin, under Configure the LinkedIn Service Provider Settings and Upload XML file. This will import the date from the file to LinkedIn and click Save SSO Configuration.
Step 7: If you want to enable Just In Time (JIT) Provisioning, you will need to turn on Automatically assign licenses as well as Select a Budget Group.
Your users can now login to LinkedIn Learning via Knowledge Anywhere!
Please note, depending on how your LinkedIn Learning account is set up, your users may need to bind their profile.
