Skyward Qmlativ SAML application setup

This manual shows you how to setup SSO to Skyward Qmlativ using the SAML protocol. The configuration takes place in HelloID and in the Qmlativ admin console.


  • HelloID environment

  • Skyward Qmlativ environment

Create or Import a Certificate

If there is no certificate yet, a certificate must be imported or created. This can be done in the HelloID Administrator Portal under Settings > Certificates. For this tutorial, we will use a self-signed certificate. Learn more about certificates here.

Application Setup
Add the Skyward Application

Create a new application in HelloID by navigating to Applications > Applications. Open the Application Catalog and search for "Skyward". Find the SAML template, and click Add. Learn more about managing applications here.

General tab

On the General tab, replace {Customer URL} with the base URL of your Skyward Qmlativ instance. Optionally, you may also add a description. Click Next.

Single Sign-on tab

On the Single Sign-On tab, perform the following steps:

  1. Change the Issuer field to the URL of your HelloID instance.

  2. In the Endpoint/ACS URL field, replace {Customer URL} with the base URL of your Skyward Qmlativ instance.

  3. In the X509 Certificate dropdown, select the certificate that you created or imported previously.

  4. Click Next.

Self service tab

On the Self Service tab, choose whether to automatically create a Self Service product, which makes the application requestable. This is optional. Click Next.

Finish tab

On the Finish tab, click Save to add the application to HelloID.

Skyward Qmlativ Setup
Save the metadata URL

After saving the Skyward application in HelloID, you'll need to make note of its metadata URL. This URL will be used inside of Skyward to establish the SSO connection.

On the applications overview, search for your newly-added Skyward application and click its edit link. This will bring you to the application's properties page. Once there, right click on the Download metadata button and select copy link address. Paste the URL from your clipboard into a note somewhere for later use.

Configure Skyward Qmlativ SSO

Now that the application is configured in HelloID and you've made note of its metadata URL, you're ready to configure the SSO connection on the Skyward side. To do that, please refer to this document from Skyward support.
