Enable Automatic Account Provisioning

Required User Role: Administrator

When you manually configure or edit a SAML configuration, you can enable automatic user account provisioning. Automatic account provisioning allows users with credentials for the IdP named in the SAML configuration to create a Tenable Vulnerability Management account the first time they log in via the IdP.

Tip: Review the Tenable SAML Configuration Quick-Reference guide for a step-by-step guide of how to configure SAML for use with Tenable Vulnerability Management.

Tenable Vulnerability Management creates automatically provisioned accounts with the following defaults:

  • Full name — NameID

  • Username — NameID

  • Email — NameID

  • User role — Basic

Tenable Vulnerability Management does not currently support any other claim types.

Before you Begin:

Configure your IdP to authenticate with Tenable Vulnerability Management. For more information, see the Tenable SAML Configuration Quick Reference Guide.
