Release 8.2.1




This section covers additional requirements for managing users in SSO environments.

Enable SSO

The Trifacta® platform requires additional configuration to integrate with your SSO provider. Available methods:

SAML IDPIntegrate the platform with enterprise SAML identity provider. See Configure SSO for SAML.
Native LDAP-ADUsing native functionality in the platform, it can integrate with enterprise LDAP/AD. For more information, see Configure SSO for AD-LDAP.
LDAP-AD via reverse proxy

A reverse proxy server outside of the platform can be set up for integration with enterprise LDAP/AD.

NOTE: This method is likely to be deprecated in a future release.


For more information, see Configure SSO for AD-LDAP.


Configure Auto-Registration

Tip: By default, user auto-registration is enabled. It is recommended.

How users are managed depends on whether auto-registration is enabled:

  • If auto-registration is enabled, after users provide their credentials, the account is automatically created for them.
  • If auto-registration is disabled, a Trifacta administrator must still provision a user account before it is available. See below.

User Management with Auto-Registration

After SSO with auto-registration has been enabled, you can still manage users through the Trifacta application, with the following provisions:

  • The Trifacta platform does not recheck for attribute values on each login. If attribute values change with your identity provider, they must be updated in the configuration.  
  • If the user has been removed from AD, the user cannot sign in to the platform.
  • If you need to remove a user from the platform, you should just disable the user through the Trifacta application.
    • If the user is deleted, then if the user returns to the platform in the future, a new account is created for the user.

For more information, See Workspace Users Page.

Disable Auto-Registration

To disable auto-provisioning in the platform, please verify the following property:

  1. You can apply this change through the Admin Settings Page (recommended) or trifacta-conf.json . For more information, see Platform Configuration Methods.
  2. Set the following property:

    "webapp.sso.enableAutoRegistration" : false,
  3. Save your changes and restart the platform.
  4. New users of the Trifacta platform must be provisioned by a Trifacta administrator. See below.

Provision new users under SSO without auto-registration

If SSO auto-registration is disabled, admin users can provision new users of the platform through the following URL:



  • <hostname> is the host of the Trifacta platform
  • <sso_port_number> is the port number.

The user's password is unnecessary in an SSO environment. You must provide the SSO principal value, which is typically the Active Directory login for the user.

  • If you are connected to a Hadoop cluster, you must provision the Hadoop principal value.
  • See Create User Account.

User access for reverse proxy method

Users access the application through the Trifacta node using the standard hostname and the port that you specified:

NOTE: All users must be use this URL to access the Trifacta application. If they use the non-SSO URL, they may receive an Unprovisioned User error.
