Updated over a week ago

❗ Important

Druva SAML certificate can be uploaded only for Okta custom application. Not applicable for default Druva application in Okta.


When we enable encryption assertion for SSO under Druva, to complete the encryption we require a saml signing certificate.

DCP admin can download the cert from Druva SSO settings. DCP Admin have the option to enable encryption for their SAML assertions during SSO configuration using Certificate Service Provider (Druva) SSL certificates. You can download the certificate by following below steps.

  1. Login to Druva using DCP admin.

  2. On the druva admin portal, click on the hamburger menu and click the ‘Druva cloud settings’.

  1. In the Single Sign-On section, click Edit. The Edit Single Sign-On Settings window appears.
