Hi guys

In the project I’m currently working on we are developing a web application which uses Auth0 to authenticate its users. We want to add a external Identity Provider to authenticate users with Auth0 operating as a Service provider.

As you know more about the setup I’m dealing with:
How does a SAML token look like? And how can I add some additional information to it (for example group memberships or permissions)?
Furthermore how does Auth0 deal with this SAML token and how does it forward the information to the web application?

Thank you for your help!
