HOW TO: Ensure username and password is not requested by IDP while signing in to Axon when SSO is enabled
When​ you log into Axon Data Governance using SSO, Axon submits the login request to the Identity Provider(IDP). The IDP authenticates the request and sends a response.

Now, by default, Axon requests for the Authentication Context which simply means it specifies the mechanism by which IDP should authenticate the user. 
The mechanism that Axon specifies by default is PasswordProtectedTransport, which means when the user tries to log in to Axon, they are redirected to the IDP 
login page where they need to enter the username and password.

In order to disable this to allow seamless login to Axon, do as follows:

1. Log in as a SuperAdmin and open the Admin Panel
2. Navigate to Customize and Configure > Configure Axon >SAML Configuration
3. Click on Edit and uncheck the following checkbox:

4. Save changes and from the Axon server run the below command to clear cache and restart necessary services:
   sh <axonhome>/axon/app/paramsync
