    In setting this up with C4C I’m getting an error about an alias none.  The C4c guide says you can’t use email with cloud identity and C4C, but it doesn’t explain about the other options and what they mean.  I also looked in the operations guide and didn’t see a detailed explaination of Name Attribute ID choices.  It just says what they are and that profile ID is default.  But- what is this and what is the best way to connect to C4C? 

    •By profile ID Note This is the default setting. •By email •By display name •By login name

      Hi Ginger,

      In a demo system, I see Loginname is used as Name Attibute ID between SCI and C4C system.

      I could not find official C4C documentation about setting Trust with any SAML IDP provider.

      I hope this helps.

    Thank for these informations.
    However the link to WebIDE configuration link is wrong and send us to the SAP Mobile Secure configuration.
    We are facing issues to deploy UI5 app from WebIDE to HCP and it might be coming from SAP Cloud Identity.

    Link is fixed now, thanks for pointing out.

    I doubt that this could be the problem for the deployment, for the deployment you need to authenticate with SAP ID user(e.g. sUser), not with an SAP Cloud Identity user or other 3rd party IDP.
