Is it possible to change Saml configurations via script?


we use SAML 2.0 Single Sign-On for Confluence (bitium) with Confluence 5.10.8.
Is it possible to change Saml configurations via script, CLI or Rest API on confluence backend server? We want for example enable or disable the option "Force SSO login" .

Hi @b

I guess the setting would either reside in the database or in a file on the server, so my guess is that this is possible to script. 



Hi @Lars Olav Velle,
I also suspected that. But I need the info as I can access it.
Maybe someone has already done that.

Unfortunately I can't find the settings in the database and also in files.
Where are the settings written?


It took me about two minutes to find the settings in the database. Here is what I did:

Installed the add-on. 

"Configured" it with some values that i could later search for.

I set the UID Attribute to "blablabla"

Dumped the datbase "mysqldump -p jiradb > /tmp/jiradb.sql"

grep blablabla tmp/jiradb.sql

Found the table: propertystring "INSERT INTO `propertystring"


Amswer: The settings are found in the database: table propertystring


Hi Lars,
the settings were finally found in the database:
at Confluence:
select * from BANANA where bandanakey like '% saml%';
at Jira:
select * from propertyentry where property_key like '% saml%';

Thank you for your help,
