SAML / Auth0 SSO ... Metadata help

Hi,

We have successfully implemented Auth0 SSO for our QlikSense Installation and also can pass metadata to the Qlik Attributes.

 

One thing we are unsure of is whether to use User_Metadata or App_Metadata on the Auth0 side :

If anyone has any advice that would be amazing.


Thanks,

Dai

Hello @Senor_Dai

 

This pretty much depends on what you want to achieve.

From the Auth0 documentation, you can allow users to edit their attributes if you use user_metadata, while app_metadata you cannot.

https://auth0.com/docs/manage-users/user-accounts/metadata

 

In the end, from a Qlik Sense point of view, the most important is that you include those attributes you want to use in the SAML assertion so that Qlik Sense can retrieve them and you can build security rules upon them.

If the issue is solved please mark the answer with Accept as Solution.
