SSO identity provider setup

In order to integrate Edge Flow Manager (EFM) with a third-party single sign on (SSO) identity provider, EFM must be added to the identity provider as an application client. This enables EFM to redirect users to the identity provider for SSO login and to retrieve user details from the identity provider’s backing user directory for use in EFM.

The supported protocols for identity provider integration are OpenID Connect (OIDC) and SAML 2.0. OIDC is sometimes referred to as OAuth2 login because it is an authentication protocol that extends the authorization protocols in OAuth2. OIDC and SAML 2.0 are industry standards supported by the majority of modern enterprise identity providers including Okta, Google, GitHub, Azure Active Directory and so on.

For up-to-date instructions on configuring EFM as an application client for your SSO identity provider, see the Identity Provider documentation.
