    Remove name assertion mapping and just keep nameID and userid

    Avi Dagan

      I'm using Tableau Online and am setting up the SAML authentication using Salesforce as the identity provider, and the First name, Last name, or Full name is required. Can I make it not required? Ideally, I would only require email and userid.

          Hi Avi,

           

          I believe this would be a feature request and you should submit it on the ideas forum for attention/upvotes by the wider community.

           

          The additional assertion fields are usually a security measure to prove this client is who they say they are. Probably an unnecessary extra but it also could be a requirement for a large number of identity providers so Tableau Online includes the additional fields to ensure support by as many IdPs as possible.

           

          Regards,

          JJ
