Hey everyone,
	I’m having a hell of a time setting up Tableau for SAML with Shibboleth. I have no idea what’s wrong. Maybe someone can point me the right direction.

I see the IDP sending the attributes, mail, uid, and displayName. I actually have a SAML trace running and I can see the attributes in the response and it says success.

However, I am still getting login failed on the Tableau said. I turned to false for:

AuthnRequestsSigned="false" WantAssertionsSigned="false" 

I also set encryptAssertions to false in relying party.

The NameID I am sending it is your email address.

And I see the rest of the attributes in the response. I have no idea why it keeps telling me it failed. Any ideas?
