    does anybody know how to setup SAML / SSO for zendesk with Azure AD/auto user provisioning?

    i have it configured that the user can sign in ok and the account gets created in zendesk... but no roles are assigned

    so basically the account has no access to anything except the help area... no agent or custom roles are being applied.


    anybody have this working?
