There's a problem with the configured user values.

Articulate 360 receives claims and attributes that supply details about the user from the identity provider (IdP). For SSO configuration, you only need to provide the following SAML values:


We support the email address format, which must match the user's email address in the IdP.


  • firstName
  • lastName
  • email

Double-check that the values you provided for each are valid and correctly formatted. Values are case-sensitive. Incorrect, missing, or additional values can result in duplicate usernames or other errors when users try to sign on to the desktop app via the organization's IdP.

If you centrally manage app installations for your organization, use the enterprise deployment guide and MSI files to install the Articulate 360 desktop app on the user's computer.
