How to test SAML SSO to my site?

Last Modified: 2018-05-09
I am trying to implement single sign-on using SAML 2  with a connection TO my website.

That is, when a user logs into their company website (acome.com for example), then will click a link to automatically log into our site.

Without troubling one of my clients as a guinea pig, how can I test the integration to my site?  

I was thinking about getting a wordPress site with a SAML plug-in to try it out, but I have never done that either.

Any information on testing SAML or using wordpress greatly appreciated.
