2789431 - After enabling custom SAML SSO in SAP Analytics Cloud, e-mails are overwritten with or @this-default-was-not-configured.invalid domain


  • Custom SAML SSO has been enabled in SAP Analytics Cloud per Enabling a Custom SAML Identity Provider (IdP).
  • E-mail addresses under Security > Users menu are overwritten with or @this-default-was-not-configured.invalid domain after the initial login since enabling custom SAML IdP.
    • Example e-mail address given in the IdP: <example>@<examplecustomerdomain>.com
    • E-mail after login: <example> or <example>@this-default-was-not-configured.invalid


  • SAP Analytics Cloud
  • Any Custom SAML 2.0 Identity Provider
  • Cloud Foundry (non-SAP datacenter, AWS) eg. EU10, US10 etc.


  • SAML Attribute mapping in the identity provider isn't configured properly.
  • E-mail is not mapped/passed from custom IDP.


Based on what datacenter SAC is running on please check solution in KBA 2519989.

  • Perform the attribute mappings carefully, especially taking the case sensitivity into consideration.
  • Make sure e-mail is mapped from custom IDP. (ADFS as sample below)


  • Ensure that the attribute names match exactly (case-sensitive) with the same provided by the table in "Enable a Custom SAML Identity Provider" online guide.
    • For sample SAML attribute mapping in Azure IdP is not correct.  It should be named and changed to email

  • Please also make sure an additional SAML Attribute "Groups" is added with value "sac" as per Step 7 of the guide below - 

System Owner Role:

  • If you are experiencing this issue with only the System Owner role, you will need to temporarily assign the System Owner role to another end user, and then log in once so that your email address is correctly updated.
  • Please see KBA 2859509 - How to change the System Owner Email Address in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)
