Here is the XML Metadata for ScreenSteps. Be sure to replace the {{}} with your SAML Consumer URL:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<md:EntityDescriptor xmlns:md="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:metadata" entityID="ScreenSteps-Live">
   <md:SPSSODescriptor protocolSupportEnumeration="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:protocol" AuthnRequestsSigned="false" WantAssertionsSigned="false">
      <md:AssertionConsumerService Binding="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:bindings:HTTP-POST" Location="{{replace with your ScreenSteps SAML Consumer URL }}" isDefault="true" index="0" />
