iPaaS workflow connector setup/settings

I am very new to iPaaS given the question I am about to ask. 

I am trying to create a flow that pulls data from a form. I have created the form. I added the connector 'TDX Common: Lookup TDX Users'. This connector shows my fields created on the form so I think I'm close but can't find information that I understand. 

I want to collect and verify information, I want to grab the persons email address and ID number (the ID can be null), and I want to find them in my people app, then use their first name last name to verify I have the right person and make them the requestor. I am currently stuck on the input/output and credentials. I have read every KB about credentials and still am not sure if or what I'm supposed to put in there for this connector. Where can I go to find out how to do this?

Please help

On the form configuration page, if you have SAML set up.

ok, I have that option in the form configuration, I know we use SSO for the main TDX platform. I also read about needing SAML in the auth methods under connectors. Is that I assume where I would set it up for iPaaS?
I wasn't planning on using a required claim name, but I did want to grab like the email address and name and their School ID. I wanted to try to find the exact name attributes. I wasn't the person who set up our SSO so that is also a trail I am chasing. Again, thank you, your input has been awesome.

Is the form an iPaaS form? If so, one way that can help is to have authentication on the form and collect attributes that way, but if you're relying on user-entered data, you'll probably have to do a search of users first, and then do a get user based on the result. It just depends on what data is sent to your flow. When you update a ticket, you typically need the unique ID of the user.

You can try the Lookup TDX Users action - see screenshot:

Then patch the ticket with the result

This is great information thank you, this would be an iPaaS form. How do I do authentication on the form?, or at least where should I look for that explanation. Thank you so much, I have further understanding and an option to pursue. - Justin Goode Tue 6/4/24 4:20 PM

So that does talk about pulling the information into the flow. Which is good, but I am also trying to verify the person entering the data with the people app in tdx which I read I needed to use a connector. If I can do this another way I am all ears, I am just having troubles finding information. - Justin Goode Tue 6/4/24 3:06 PM
