Qlik Sense: Is it possible to use a SAML attribute for the display name?

Is it possible to use a SAML attribute for the display name in Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows? 


Environments:

 

It is not possible to use a SAML attribute for the display name.

A user directory connector needs to be used to synchronize the display name for the user, it will add up the information to the same user as long as User Directory and User ID match.

Hi @Damien_Villaret 

As we understand that It is not possible to use a SAML attribute for the display name.

how can we archive the goal of same user will match User Directory name and SAML Attribute for

User ID ?

Thanks

Hello @eyalnir_qlik 

You just create a User Directory Connector that sync the user with the same User Directory and same Username but also contains a display name.

I am not sure I fully get your question.

Alternately, OIDC authentication supports adding a display name.

HI @Damien_Villaret 

See the sample inline, for instance after we authenticate via SAML azure, 

same user "display name" show as eyal.nir@dns.co.il VS. AD user display as eyaln , 

in that scenario we need to consume 2 professional licenses for actually same user.

the challenge for us to sync between them in order to consume only 1 professional license

hope it's more clear now

Thanks

Hello @eyalnir_qlik 

License assignment is based on User Directory and User id, it has nothing to do with display name.

So if you're running into that issue, it means your user id doesn't match.

Please open a separate thread in https://community.qlik.com/t5/Deployment-Management/bd-p/qlik-sense-deployment if you need further help as this is unrelated to the topic of this article.
