4. Upload the metadata or SAML signing certificate obtained in step 3 to the collaborating service provider.

From the completion of this step until the completion of the next step 5, single sign-on from HENNGE Access Control to the collaborating service provider will be disabled.

The upload and update procedures vary depending on the service. Please confirm with each service provider for details.

5. Once the update of the collaborating service's certificate in step 4 is complete, check the checkbox at the bottom of the popup displayed in the HENNGE Access Control admin screen and click the [Confirm] button in the bottom right.
