  1. Hi,

    Can we use virtual user to authenticate by using SAML2 in sitecore?so when we login to cms it would check it with external system and return with saml response and then create virtual user to login to content tree based on the role assigned.

    1. Hi Vish !

      It should be totally possible to implement this solution. Just keep in mind that virtual users are not persistent and you will have to recreate them every time. If you want to persist them you might want to create a connector to your SAML2.
