Use CreateSAMLProvider with an Amazon SDK or command line tool

The following code examples show how to use CreateSAMLProvider.

CLI
Amazon CLI

To create a SAML provider

This example creates a new SAML provider in IAM named MySAMLProvider. It is described by the SAML metadata document found in the file SAMLMetaData.xml.

aws iam create-saml-provider \ --saml-metadata-document file://SAMLMetaData.xml \ --name MySAMLProvider

Output:

{ "SAMLProviderArn": "arn:aws:iam::123456789012:saml-provider/MySAMLProvider" }

For more information, see Creating IAM SAML identity providers in the Amazon IAM User Guide.

import { CreateSAMLProviderCommand, IAMClient } from "@aws-sdk/client-iam"; import { readFileSync } from "fs"; import * as path from "path"; import { dirnameFromMetaUrl } from "@aws-doc-sdk-examples/lib/utils/util-fs.js"; const client = new IAMClient({}); /** * This sample document was generated using Auth0. * For more information on generating this document, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/IAM/latest/UserGuide/id_roles_providers_create_saml.html#samlstep1. */ const sampleMetadataDocument = readFileSync( path.join( dirnameFromMetaUrl(import.meta.url), "../../../../resources/sample_files/sample_saml_metadata.xml", ), ); /** * * @param {*} providerName * @returns */ export const createSAMLProvider = async (providerName) => { const command = new CreateSAMLProviderCommand({ Name: providerName, SAMLMetadataDocument: sampleMetadataDocument.toString(), }); const response = await client.send(command); console.log(response); return response; };
PowerShell
Tools for PowerShell

Example 1: This example creates a new SAML provider entity in IAM. It is named MySAMLProvider and is described by the SAML metadata document found in the file SAMLMetaData.xml, which was separately downloaded from the SAML service provider's web site.

New-IAMSAMLProvider -Name MySAMLProvider -SAMLMetadataDocument (Get-Content -Raw SAMLMetaData.xml)

Output:

arn:aws:iam::123456789012:saml-provider/MySAMLProvider
