Is there way for SAML users to log in to the web console?
It shows that our SSO users are able to leverage the Alerting extension and are being synced into Alerting's user admin page. However, we have yet to find a way for SSO/SAML users to connect to their mobile app or log in to the web console.
I could not find any documentation around how Qlik alerting authorizes/authenticates. Only info on how it authenticates against Qlik Sense.
As @Richard_Byard mentioned, federated identity is on the roadmap. But in the interim, Qlik Alerting uses native authentication. This means that any user can, provided they have an email address for their user record in Qlik Alerting:
Access the Console
Reset their password
Set their password using the reset link
This is the current flow regardless of providence of how the user authenticates into Qlik Sense Enterprise (SAML, Windows, Ticketing, etc, etc).
