Role required: admin

About this task

For the SAML 2.0 integration the NameID token must map to a particular field in the User table. The integration uses the NameID token's value to determine what user the IdP authenticates.

Procedure

  1. Browse the IdP metadata to find the NameIDFormat element that contains a value of emailAddress. The value of this element is the default format that the integration uses.
  2. Review other NameIDFormat elements to determine if there are formats that match other fields in the User table.
