You set up SAML single sign-on support in Swivel AuthControl Sentry and gather the information you need to connect the CTERA Portal to Swivel AuthControl Sentry.
Before you start, get a CTERA logo image from CTERA, to identify the CTERA Portal SSO application.
To get the SAML single sign-on information:
- Login to Swivel AuthControl Sentry as the account administrator.
- Select Keys from the navigation menu.
The Keys screen is displayed.
- Click Download next to the Cert type.
- Save the certificate as you will need to upload it to CTERA Portal later.
- Select Application Images from the navigation menu.
- Click Upload New Image.
- Upload the CTERA logo image, that you received from CTERA.
- Select Applications from the navigation menu and then click Add Application.
The Application Types screen is displayed.

The format is similar to the following example:
Federated Id – The field used to identify the user attempting to log on to the portal. Enter email.
