External Identity Provider | Planning Steps
The Cirrus External Identity Provider is often used to provide access to users who do not have a federated identity and who prefer not to access services via social login. In identity management parlance, the External Identity Provider service is an “identity provider of last resort”. It is helpful to consider a few factors before deployment:
Who is the target audience?
Do individuals have a valid email address?
What is/are the Service Providers that will be accessed?
How will password reset be handled?
Sending a reset token to the registered email address is the default configuration.
Configuring reset via security questions is another option Cirrus supports.
How will this identity provider be branded?
What will it be called?
