    If using SSO, and therefore user can only edit the description, how do they set an Alias if we allow them?


  • Clifford James Lacson

    Hello Kelsey,

    If you update the name as part of the JWT string then it will also update the User's name within Zendesk. From the Supported Attributes section: The name of this user. The user in Zendesk will be created or updated in accordance with this.

    Here is an article that outlines the process: Enabling JWT (JSON Web Token) single sign-on

    For SAML SSO, I believe this is implemented in the supported user attributes as well. Kindly check this article here: [Enabling SAML single sign-on
    ]( uhttps://support.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/203663676-Enabling-SAML-single-sign-on#topic_d1r_523_l3rl )

    I hope this helps!
