The Zendesk Single Sign-on (SSO) Integration creates a client application that uses Auth0 for authentication and provides SSO capabilities for Zendesk. Your users log in to Zendesk with Auth0 identity providers, which means the identity provider performs the identity credentials verification.
Before you begin:
- Sign up for a Zendesk account.
- Set up a connection, which is a source of users. Connections can be databases, social identity providers, or enterprise identity providers, and can be shared among different applications. You may set up more than one connection for use with SSO integrations.
Zendesk requires that all users have an email address. When enabling enterprise or social connections, make sure that they will provide an email address that can be sent to Zendesk.
Configure Auth0 SSO Integration
Enter a name for your SSO Integration, configure the following settings, and click Save.
|Zendesk Account Name||Your Zendesk account name.|
|Use Auth0 instead of the IdP to do Single Sign-on (SSO). **Legacy tenants only.**||If enabled, Auth0 will handle SSO instead of Zendesk.|
