How to Debug SAML Issues

Configuration checks:

  • SAML Handler in AEM will only be activated when it receives the IDP response at <AEM_HOST>/saml_login(Assuming path variable is set to "/")
  • saml_login is the servlet that processes the IDP response and creates users Or provides details about the failure.
  • So, make sure IDP is making the POST call to:
    • <AEM_HOST>/saml_login when the path field is set to "/"
    • <AEM_HOST>/content/abc/saml_login when the path field is set to "/content/abc"
  • If this is still an issue, check the detailed article at [1] for further troubleshooting

Custom Overlay's are not working as expected after the upgrade

  • Check if the node that was overlayed has moved to a different location OR updated. If that is the case, you need to recreate the overlay by using the new location.
  • Before upgrading, follow the steps in this article to ensure that the overlays are upgraded properly to the target version.
