Is it possible to use a SAML attribute for the display name in Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows?
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.
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 ?
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.
See the sample inline, for instance after we authenticate via SAML azure,
same user "display name" show as firstname.lastname@example.org 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
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.
