  2. Audience URI/SP Entity ID/Issuer:
  3. Name ID format: EmailAddress
  4. Name ID / Application Username / Unique Identifier: Email

    • EmailAddress
    • FirstName
    • LastName
  6. Optional attributes/claims:
    • GrammarlyRole
    • GrammarlyGroup
    • CommonName (instead of FirstName and LastName)

If present, the GrammarlyRole attribute assigns appropriate permission to the member. For more information about roles and permissions, see this article. The permitted GrammarlyRole values are:


If present, the GrammarlyGroupRoleGroupManager attribute assigns the appropriate permission to a team member. The value of the attribute should be the name of the group that the member is assigned to manage.

If present, the GrammarlyGroup attribute assigns the member to the corresponding group within Grammarly. For more information about groups, see this article.
