Role Mapping


This feature can be used to assign WordPress roles to the users based on their SAML attributes received from the Identity Provider.

1. Assign a Default role to the user
  • Using this toggle you can set the default role to the newly created users.
    Note - You can choose any role from the dropdown to set as default role.
2. Create/Update the user but assign a 'None' role
  • This feature is especially useful if you prefer new users not to have automatic roles assigned to them, allowing them to access the site without any WordPress roles.
3. Don't create new user and assign Default Role to existing user
  • You can enable this toggle to stop new user creation and assign a default role to all existing users.
4. Apply all role mapping settings to WP admin users
  • Enabling/disabling the toggle gives you control to apply/prevent Role Mapping setting changes for the Admin role.
5. Enable Regex for Role Mapping
  • You can enable this toggle if you want to match an expression with the string of attribute values sent by IDP for Role Mapping.
    Note - To enable this option navigate to Attribute/Role Mapping >> Advanced Settings subtab.
