[External] Re: Cornerstone On Demand + SSO + custom attribute for user matching

We're being informed now, that NameID is the only way supported to send in a user matching value.
Is it possible for you to confirm if that integration was in fact with an attribute (or a custom attribute) or just setting the NameID to an email or user id to match in their data?

I don't know if the product versions on their end have anything to do with their SSO model.

Their documentation shared with us says this for SAML 2.0 integration:

Element: NameID

Definition: This element contains the User's identifier information to log-in to CSOD. This could be any of the following
User fields:

  *   User ID
  *   Username
  *   Email Address

This is described in http://docs.oasis-open.org/security/saml/v2.0/saml-core-2.0-os.pdf(page 14).

CSOD validation steps:
Verify the User information in the Client's CSOD database. The User must be an existing, Active User in the Client's CSOD portal. Otherwise, access is denied to the User

They mapped in a custom Attribute when I integrated it, we had nothing we could use at the time that fit the use case for various reasons, but if EPPN had been appropriate for us, that could have been the one that we mapped in.

There are a whole lot of problems with Cornerstone, but that wasn't one of them.
