SSO SAML & Ticket authentication

Hi everyone,

 

We have successfully implemented Auth0 SSO & SAML for qliksense.  When the user logs in they are redirected to the QlikSense Hub - which was perfect for our requirements.

Recently we have been developing a site that once the user logs in via SSO they are redirected to a site that uses QlikSense APIs to present bespoke analytics.  (Something similar that is described in this post https://www.clusterdesign.com.br/en/how-to-render-a-qlik-sense-object-within-a-react-mashup/)

 

A few questions we have are :

  1. Can we still use SAML to 'authenticate' the user so when they are redirected after SSO login they can still use the analytics
  2. Or, do we need to employ a different system so the new site knows the user is authenticated (eg, JWT/Session/Ticket)?

I hope these questions aren't too vague but any advice appreciated.

 

Dai

Hello @Senor_Dai

 

It is not impossible to use SAML authentication with embedded content but it will require some extra page redirections as the SAML authentication flow can only be triggered from a page directly hosted in Qlik Sense.

You can check https://community.qlik.com/t5/Knowledge/Qlik-Sense-on-Windows-How-to-use-mashups-with-SAML/ta-p/1758...

 

TIcket/JWT/Session would offer a more seamless experience to the end user but would require extra coding. You can read more here

Hope this helps.
