Configure SAML/OpenID Connect

Protocol-based providers are those that rely on a specific protocol to authenticate and authorize users. By using them, you can connect to any identity provider compliant with a specific protocol. It is easy to configure and broker any identity provider based on these open standards.

Although each type of identity provider has its own configuration options, all of them share some common configuration.

Procedure
  1. In the Access Manager, on the left sidebar, click Identity Providers.
  2. From the Add provider drop-down list, select an authentication protocol.

    Note: The Keycloak OpenID Connect protocol is not described separately within this topic. This protocol is an OpenID Connect v1.0 protocol customized specifically for Keycloak. It shares all the settings that are configured for OpenID Connect v1.0 protocol.

    The configuration page for the identity provider opens.

  3. Specify the general settings for the identity provider.

  4. Specify the settings for the external identity provider and for the service provider.

  5. Save your changes.

    The identity provider is added to the list of identity providers.

  6. (Optional) To edit the identity provider, in the list of identity providers, click its link or click Edit.

    The configuration page for the identity provider opens. Do the following:

    1. Edit the settings as needed.
    2. Save your changes.

  7. (Optional) To delete the identity provider, in the list of identity providers, click Delete, and then click Delete in the confirmation message.
