Expired Saml Certificate Still Allows Logins


Published: 24 Jun 2020

Issue

Users can still login to Tableau Server even after the SAML certificate has expired.
 

Environment

  • Tableau Server

Resolution

Users can still log in to Tableau Server but the SAML certificates can be renewed/updated.
See: Configure Server-Wide SAML
 

Cause

Tableau Server does not validate the expiration data of the SAML certificate. This certificate is only used for signing purposes. 

The SSL certificate covers encryption and it is the SSL certificate that is validated as being expired or not.
