I've set up a gluu server on ubuntu, created some users, and on a Windows server I have IIS running with Shibboleth installed and configured. I go to http://mysite/secure and it redirects to my gluu server, where I log in and I am successfully sent back to http://mysite/secure - GREAT! For this to work ALL I've done on the Gluu server is set a TR with the hostname of mysite - and exported the files to my shibboleth folder on the Windows server - also created some gluu users. *it took a bit of messing about with the TR form - some fields do not appear unless you toggle dropdown options a few times. Now I'd like it so, perhaps I have another site http://mysite/securetwo and I'd like it to redirect to an external IDP - what are the steps needed in Gluu - I don't see how my existing TR knows anything about this external IDP. Just any pointers to documentation or examples will be handy.

Hi Rehman, We call this solution, of authenticating at an external IDP, inbound identity. Gluu leverages its passport.js component to achieve this solution. If you want to send users to an existing SAML IDP, follow [this document](https://gluu.org/docs/ce/authn-guide/inbound-saml-passport/). If you want to send users to an existing OAuth AS, follow [this document](https://gluu.org/docs/ce/authn-guide/passport/). Feel free to open a new ticket with specific questions if you run into any issues. Also search here on the forums, there should be quite a few inbound identity tickets available for your education as needed. Thanks, Will
