Integrating NextCloud with SimpleSAMLphp

First of all, install “SSO & SAML authentication” app to NextCloud.

For unique id we are using `eduPersonPrincipalName` from LDAP server.
Also we’ll be using users Full name and email, so add `displayName` and `mail` attributes to “Attribute mapping”.

Specify metadata and SSo service URLs.


For SimpleSAMLphp metadata, this should be enough:

$metadata['https://nextcloudURL/index.php/apps/user_saml/saml/metadata'] = array(
    'NameIDFormat' => 'urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:nameid-format:transient',
    'AssertionConsumerService' => 'https://nextcloudUR/index.php/apps/user_saml/saml/acs',
    'attributeencodings' => array('objectSid' => 'base64'),
    'authproc' => array(
        0 => array(
            'class' => 'core:AttributeLimit',
            'mail', 'eduPersonPrincipalName','displayName',
