Auth0 is a service that abstracts how users authenticate to applications. From Auth0, you and your users can log in to Auth0 and then access applications such as Sisense without having to log in to each application.

Auth0 supports applications that support SAML 2.0, such as Sisense.

This page describes how to add Sisense to Auth0 and configure SSO-support with SAML 2.0 by creating an Auth0 app and connecting it to Sisense.

Note: This page reflects a 3rd party’s application which may change. If the steps described here do not match what you see in your Auth0 account, you can use the generic Sisense SAML documentation, along with the IdP’s documentation.
