Use a Custom Attribute map for SAML Configuration

If your IdP does not offer a way for you to map the assertion response attributes onto attributes expected by Alation, you can create a custom attribute map on the Alation server and map the attributes using this map. The map uses the format Basic.

To create the custom attribute map,

On the Alation server, create a file at /opt/alation/site/saml/

The file should have the following content. Substitute the keys 'ssoid', 'email', 'firstname', 'lastname' with your actual attribute names):

MAP = {


    'to': {},

    'fro': {

        'ssoid': 'uid',

        'email': 'mail',

        'firstname': 'givenName',

        'lastname': 'sn'
