I have a situation where we want to use auth0 as a service provider in a IdP initiated SSO flow. In this situation I have a web app where users can log in via our own authentication. Once they log into our platform though, we have a section where if they click on a certain item they will be redirected to that URL. This is where Auth0 comes in handy as a service provider to redirect them after authentication.
Based on my understanding, this is what the flow should look like:
User successfully logs into my web application.
User clicks to navigate to a new webpage and wants to be logged in there.
IdP (my site) sends SAML token containing user data to Auth0 Application
Service provider (auth0 app) takes request and then calls the applications callback.
My callback endpoint gets data from auth0 and then redirects user
I guess what I don’t fully understand is what endpoint do I send my user data to in my auth0 application and if I have the correct understanding of the IdP-Initiated SSO flow.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, looking forward to responses!
