In order to ensure accuracy here, download the users table in firm settings and compare it to your users table in your SSO provider. If there are differences, follow these steps BEFORE you send your Metadata URL.

Once the request has been sent, your emails are matching, and the subscription has been fulfilled, retrieve your Metadata URL and share it with The integration will be created on our end and turned on for your firm the following workday.
