If checked, users will be able to authenticate from both Bitium and the Rightscale page using SAML.

  8. Save settings.

In Bitium:

Go back to the Single Sign-On tab for Tableau and click the “Save Changes” button.

After setting up SAML between Bitium and Rightscale, users’ authentication in RightScale will need to be set to SAML.
