Step 4: Role mapping (It is Optional to fill this). This is Premium feature.

  • Drupal uses a concept of Roles, designed to give the site owner the ability to control what users can and cannot do within the site.
  • Role mapping helps you to assign specific roles to users of a certain group in your IdP.
  • While auto registering, the users are assigned roles based on the group they are mapped to.
  • Under the Role Mapping section, configure which GROUP value coming in the SAML response needs to be mapped to which role in Drupal. The Group value coming in the SAML response will be mapped to the Role assigned here and the user will be assigned that role in Drupal.
