Identity Management: Anypoint Platform
You can configure identity management in the Anypoint Platform to set up users for single sign-on (SSO). There are two ways to configure identity management using one of the following single sign-on standards:
OpenID Connect: End-user identity verification by an authorization server including SSO
SAML 2.0: Web-based authorization including cross-domain SSO
Here we can use OpenID Connect to connect IDP provider(Auth0). Through Auth0 we can log in to Anypoint platform using user created in Auth0, simple database, Active Directory, or any social media like Google, Facebook, and Linkedin, etc.
End of this exercise you will be able to login to the Anypoint platform using the Auth0 credential and Gmail account.
Identity Management Process
Identity Provider (Auth0)
An identity provider is a system entity that creates, maintains, and manages identity information for principals. It offers user authentication as a service. Relying party applications, such as web applications, outsource the user authentication step to a trusted identity provider.
Auth0 is a flexible, drop-in solution to add authentication and authorization services to your applications. You can connect any application (written in any language or on any stack) to Auth0 and define the identity providers that you want to use (how do you want your users to log in to the system)to log in.
