We are testing out the option to use SAML login to be able to link LimeSurvey with AD. Usage of LDAP for this purpose is prohibited in our company. SAML plugin is not yet fully configured and I would like some input is it worth to try to figure the config out or won't it work for what I want it for.

Is it possible to use SAML login as base to register for a survey or is the SAML authentication method meant only for the admin interface?
Just so when you have a survey which requires authenication, you don't need to fill in a registration form and get a link to your token, you just input your AD username and password and get get straight to filling the form?

Version is Version 3.17.7+190627

github.com/auth-it-center/Limesurvey-SAML-Authentication is the thing I think what was put onto out limesurvey server. Right now we are looking into free plugin options, having something developed for us would probably cost I think. I didn't find any plugins for what you mentioned in LimeStore

Hi Kohuke,

Im the author of the original SAML plugin for Limesurvey that I created 6 years ago:
github.com/pitbulk/limesurvey-saml


It seems that some people took it and added some new features.

I had no access to the code of the version created by LimeSurvey GMBH so can't
say how complete it is.

I implemented 2 new versions:
- A version that keep using simpleSAMLphp and where I added new features.
- A version that uses php-saml instead of simpleSAMLphp which eliminates the session conflict issue and the ability to configure the IdP directly on Limesurvey admin settings (you can only connect 1 IdP for now, but if the plugin become popular I plan to support there multiple IdPs).

I plan to sell it on LimeStore, but for now since marketplace seems not mature, I plan to sell it by Paypal for now.

I gonna sell it for 100€ and early adopters will receive free support.
Later, I plan to join the yearly subscription, and maybe I reduce the price.
Early adopters will be added to the annual fee scheme, but maybe I exclude them from the first payment.

If you interested, message me sixto.martin.garcia+limesurvey@gmail.com.
