IMPORTANT: In order to assign users to a group via SAML, the value for the groups SAML attribute should be of a group that has already been created in Udemy for Business.
Here is an example describing how to add and use the additional externalID attribute:
In Okta, navigate to Directory > Profile Editor.
Search for the Udemy for Business app, then click Profile:
Click Add Attribute, then enter the following:
Display Name: Enter a preferred attribute name. In our example, we used Udemy External ID.
Variable Name: Enter udemyExternalId.
Important: In our example, we are adding the udemyExternalId attribute. For the groups custom attribute, you have to use this variable name: groups.
Click either Add Attribute or Save and Add Another.
Note: Scope (optional): If you check User personal, the current attribute will be available once you assign the user to the Udemy for Business application and will not be available once you assign the group to the app.
Select the Okta to Udemy for Business tab.
Start typing the required attribute from the Okta Base User profile (or use the dropdown list), then select the attributes you want to map.
In our example we selected the employeeNumber attribute, and then use the green arrows (Apply mapping on user create and update).
Click Save Mappings:
Click Apply updates now:
Okta will now pass the udemyExternalId attribute with the value of the employeeNumber field from the Okta Base User Profile to Udemy for Business.
