This article lists the changes of the XMedius Cloud platform and services as of 2019-06-07.
SAML 2.0 Support for SSO Integration
- The SAML 2.0 protocol can now be selected as protocol for SSO integration and your Enterprise Settings can be configured according to your SSO Identity Provider (IdP).
- SAML 2.0 integration has been validated with IdPs such as AD FS (on Windows 2012 R2+), Okta and F5 – but it is technically compatible with other IdPs (for example, OneLogin).
- Once configured in your account, SSO login using SAML 2.0 works out-of-the-box with the XMedius Cloud Web applications.
- To have it work with
SendFAX or XM SendSecure for Outlook, your users need to update their
application to the latest version, namely:
- MFP connectors can work with SAML 2.0, if they are configured to use the "shared account" or "device login" mode (conversely, they cannot work in "user prompt" mode).
- Mobile applications (XM Fax and XM SendSecure), as well as the XM Fax Print To Web printer do not currently support SSO login using SAML 2.0.

AD FS Server IP Whitelisting for SSO using WS-Fed / WS-Trust
- AD FS server IP
address whitelisting is required if your users are using at least one of the
- AD FS server IP
address whitelisting is
not required if your users are
only using the following:
- is performed on-demand – only if needed, according to the above details – through a specific request sent to XMedius.
- does not apply to supported SAML 2.0 integrations.
- is not required if your SSO integration using WS-Fed / WS-Trust was already enabled before Cloud Platform Update 20 (i.e. it has been already done).
Trusted Email Domains for Email-to-Fax
- In this specific use case, no user account creation is required, but your enterprise account must be configured to trust one or several email domains (owned by your company).
- The Trusted Email Domains configuration is only performed on-demand by XMedius through a dedicated request form.
- Anyone using an email address that belong to these trusted domains will be able to send faxes by email, but will not benefit from any other functionality of your XMedius cloud solutions – unless this person is also registered (i.e. have a user account) in your enterprise.
- All faxes sent by email in this context will use the same default settings as defined in the enterprise account: default faxing profile, default user language and main fax number for outbound number – except for registered users (who may have different personal settings).

- The main menu of the Web portal now has the same style and behavior across all Web pages/applications to provide users with a consistent navigation experience.
- The Fax Numbers list CSV/Excel export option now includes a new column with the Fax Number Note in the exported file.
- Various other improvements and security fixes.
