What Happens When a New User Is Created via SAML

A new user created via SAML is a Regular User and is automatically added to the Default Group and assigned an empty Favorite Folder named My Favorites. This applies only to initial user record creation. If users have been added through other methods such as ldap or Active Directory sync, this doesn't apply either.

  • Best practice is to disable SAML_AUTOCREATE_USERS when using ldap for User/Group sync.
  • A default user type is configured by the SAML_AUTOCREATE_USERTYPE Variable. Its default value is R which stands for Regular User, the two other available options are: P – Power User, A – Admin.

For further configuration of defaults for new users refer to Setting Defaults for New Users.
