When users are provisioned using a SAML single sign-on (SSO) system and change their password, they receive unexpected email notifications from Zendesk causing confusion.
Some SAML providers have a setting for syncing passwords. When this setting is enabled and a user changes their SSO password, the password is also pushed to Zendesk to update the user's native Zendesk password. This update sends an email notification to the user from Zendesk.
To resolve this issue
- Disable the syncing passwords option within the SAML provisioning settings. This prevents the native Zendesk password from syncing with the SSO password. If needed, the user can reset their Zendesk password at any time.
- Suppress the email notifications
