We have an old learning platform (OLP) built using Coldfusion. It supports SAML.
We would like to integrate this platform with Moodle 3.2 so when the user clicks a link to this platform, they won't be asked to login again. It should use the same Moodle login details (single sign on).
The case is that SAML authentication happens between two systems one being the provider and the other being the consumer. The OLP is configured as a service provider (SP) and Moodle does not support being a consumer(IdP). It has to be the service provider (SP).
The available plugin for moodle allows to configure it as a service provider using SimpleSamlPhp application.
What we want to do is to configure moodle to be an identity provider (IdP) or consumer .
