  1. Your institution must have a SAML-based Identity Provider (IdP) whose metadata we can consume via a stable URL and which defines a security domain using shibMD:scope. This is most commonly achieved through membership to an identity federation that participates in eduGAIN.  The following federations have been confirmed to support access to Fulcrum via eduGAIN as of November 2019:
    • Canadian Access Federation (CAF)
    • HEAnet / Edugate
    • InCommon
    • UK Federation
  2. Your Identity Provider must be configured to release attribute 'eduPersonScopedAffiliation' to entityId ''. For more details on configuring your SSO to work with Fulcrum (ACS endpoints), please find our metadata in the eduGAIN aggregate metadata XML.
  3. You must provide us with the entityId of your Identity Provider.

This information can be included in your order form or emailed to

A Fulcrum logo is available at

Please note that Fulcrum is not a member of OpenAthens Federation. You must participate in another identity federation to take advantage of SSO integration.
