Yesterday. we were testing configuring SAML 2.0 in our Jira Data Center 8.2. We were not successful and thought we were very careful to ensure we had selected "Use SAML as secondary authentication" selected until we were successful, but had run some tests where we had it set as primary (and leaving the session open.)
It appears to me that the configuration was last saved with "Use SAML as primary authentication" selected but it is failing. We are essentially locked out.
Is ther some way of setting "SAML Authentication to secondary" or change the SAML 2.0 to "Use Login Form" instead of SAML Single Sign-on or somehow to force an interactive user logon?
I saw this:
If you make a mistake configuring the SAML authentication, or are unable to log in using your IdP, you can restore login form authentication by using issuing a DELETE request (using a username and password for an administrator configured in your user directory):
curl -u admin_user:admin_password -X DELETE http://base-url/product/rest/authconfig/1.0/saml
But I don't understand the context of where this is run. Is this right in my browser or from a command line on the linux machine?
You need to run this from a terminal command line / basically a machine which has curl installed. (What is curl - https://dev.to/ibmdeveloper/what-is-curl-and-why-is-it-all-over-api-docs-9mh)
It basically does a REST API call to remove the SAML Config. After that you should be able to login again.
