How Auth0 serves as the SAML SP for your app(s)

Custom applications may externalize authentication against an external Identity Provider using a protocol such as OpenID Connect or OAuth2. In such cases, even though the application was written to utilize the OpenID Connect or OAuth2 protocol, it may be desirable to leverage an enterprise SAML provider for authentication.

In this situation, Auth0 will receive an authentication request from the application using the OpenID Connect or OAuth2 protocol, and Auth0 will translate the request into a SAML Authentication Request and send it on to a SAML Identity Provider. In this case, Auth0 serves as a SAML Service Provider in the federation with the Identity Provider.
