This SAML Authentication method automatically creates user accounts on your tenant based on mapping configurations. When your users log in to the User portal, the following takes place:
- The VidyoPortal redirects the user to your IdP authentication page.
- Your user name and password is validated against the SAML IdP server.
- If authentication succeeds, the SAML server returns the user’s attributes as you have specified using the SAML Attributes Mapping pop-up.
For more information, see Understanding the VidyoPortal User Account Attributes (SAML).
- The VidyoPortal then uses the set of attributes returned from the SAML server to create a new user account in the system.
