We have SAML SSO (single sign-on) and JIT (Just in Time) account provisioning working in our test Blackboard environment but we are missing an element.
Our EXTERNAL_PERSON_KEY is different from the USER_ID for students.
Within the identity provider (Azure) we can pick up the EXTERNAL_PERSON_KEY datum and add it to a SAML attribute. For example we have mapped the Azure provided EXTERNAL_PERSON_KEY to the Blackboard home telephone number attribute for a user.
Currently it is not possible to map the EXTERNAL_PERSON_KEY separately and as a different value from USER_ID in Blackboard.
Please add this capability.
