Does Centrify Identity Service support all the SAML 2.0 profiles?

Answer

Centrify Identity Service supports "Web Browser SSO Profile" and "Basic Attribute Profile". Generally, there is no concern to set up SAML between Centrify and a web application, as long as the web application is capable of implementing Web Browser SSO Profile.
