You can also define custom destination roles.
In the Roles tab, you can view the list of roles defined for your account and create new custom roles. You cannot create custom account roles. You can only create custom destination roles.
To see the permissions defined for a role, select the arrow next to its name.
Custom destination permissionslink
The feature is available only for Enterprise accounts.
In addition to basic destination permissions, you can configure custom destination roles. Custom destination roles enable account owners to create and assign custom roles to limit create, edit, and delete access to specific connector types. Built-in roles (Admin, Analyst, Uploader, and Read Only) are also available in the roles list, but you can’t modify them.

To add a new custom role, follow these steps:
Click + Role at the top right.

- Hover over the role and click the pencil icon on the right.
- Edit the name or permissions, including access to manage specific sources.
- Click Update Role to save.
Delete a Custom Role
To delete a custom role, follow these steps:
- Hover over the role and clicking the X icon on the right.

In the Settings tab, you can change the account security configuration.
Configure SAML login in the SAML Config section of the Settings tab.
To configure SSO with SAML, follow these steps:
Switch the Enable SAML authentication toggle to on.
If you want to use Just-In-Time (JIT) user provisioning, keep Enable user provisioning on.
Set the Sign on URL field value to the one provided by your SAML identity provider.
Specify the Issuer field, copying the issuer value from your SAML identity provider.
Copy and paste your SAML identity provider’s public certificate to the Public certificate field.
Supported identity providerslink
We officially support the following identity providers:
You can set up “Fivetran” from the app catalogs for these identity providers (except Google Workspace).
If you would like us to offer official support for any other identity provider, let us know and we will evaluate your request.
If you would like to try using a SAML 2.0 compliant identity provider that we don’t support, you can attempt it with these settings:
- ACS: https://fivetran.com/login/saml/return
- NameID: must be user’s email
- Required custom attributes:
- FirstName - user’s first name
- LastName - user’s last name
NOTE: This method is not fully supported and may not work with an identity provider that does not support our requirements. If you run into issues we would be happy to evaluate adding official support for your identity provider.
Follow the instructions in the PingOne installation wizard. Configure custom attributes as shown in the screenshot below (no need to change any other app setting):
SAML Just-In-Time (JIT) User Provisioninglink
Fivetran supports JIT User Provisioning. This feature helps automate the user account creation. If both Enable SAML authentication and Enable user provisioning settings are on, Fivetran will perform the following actions on each successful SAML sign-on:
- If the user with the specified email address does not exist, Fivetran will create a new user with the email address, first name and last name as specified in the SAML assertion received from the Identity Provider.
- If the user exists, but their first name or last name have changed, Fivetran will update these fields with the new values.
If Enable user provisioning is OFF and the user with the specified email address does not exist, a sign-on attempt via SAML will throw an error.
Note: The new user will be created with the read-only access. To grant this user write access to your Fivetran account, log in as the account owner, go to the account management page. On the Users tab, manage the user’s permissions.
On the Billing tab, you can:
- Monitor your credit consumption
- Set up credit usage alerts
- View past credit consumption
- View or change billing plan
- View or change payment method
- View past invoices
- Cancel plan (online purchasing only)
