Auth0 is an easy to implement, adaptable authentication and authorization platform. You can configure ilert to use Auth0 as SAML provider for your users.

2. On the modal window name the app e.g. ilert, choose Regular Web Application tile and lick on the Create button

3. On the next page clicke on the Addons tab and enable the SAML2 addon

SSO with SAML requires your account to be on a Premium or Enterprise Plan, please always feel free to reach out in case you have any questions.

2. Go back to Auth0 and click on the Settings tab on the SAML modal window. Paste your SAML Endpoint URL value into the Auth0 Application Callback URL field, than paste the following settings by first replacing the Audience Restriction field:

  "nameIdentifierProbes": [

3. Scroll down and click on the Save button

4. After saving, click on the Usage tab. Here you can find all the values you need for ilert SSO

Transfer the values to ilert's SSO settings

Save the the ilert SSO settings. SSO is now configured, however to make the login process work properly you will have to do one more thing.

Additional SSO Configurations

Auto-provisioning Auth0 Users in ilert

You can easily auto-provision users on their first SSO login by enabling the checkbox for Provision new users on first sso login in your ilert account's settings. This way user accounts will be automatically setup with the role User in ilert. Keep in mind that this will require your account to have enough seats booked.

Disable login with username and password

You can optionally disable the login for username and password combinations on your ilert account and enforce users to use SSO by disabling the checkbox for Allow login with username and password in your ilert account's settings.

Passing additional attributes during auto-provisioning

Besides the NameID you may pass additional parameters for the user or the team to be automatically setup on the first login, please checkout our auto provisioning section.
