When a user attempts to sign in to Web Community Manager using SAML technology, that user is authenticated by your Identity Provider (IdP).

When a user is authenticated with the IdP, the district returns a successful SAML assertion with First Name, Last Name, Email, Username, Phone Number and Title.

  • If the user exists, the Web Community Manager only establishes a session.
  • If the user does not exist, WCM creates the user based on the assertion metadata and then establishes a session.

WCM doesn't bring over groups from ADFS. Optionally, if users are created or managed another way (for example, Universal Connector or Manually), new account creation can be disabled
