The Cirrus Identity Invitation service builds a relationship between a Sponsor and an end user. This is accomplished by creating an invitation with the end user’s email using either our web based application or a REST based API.
Users (on the left) receive an email from a sponsor “inviting” them to claim an identity to use when accessing an enterprise app (on the right)
Sponsorship requests can be created using the Cirrus web interface or REST based APIs
Admins configure guest and sponsor email notifications specific to the Service Provider
Sponsors and admins have the ability to extend or revoke access at any time
The Invitation Service acts as a coarse grained authorization solution for a service provider, with expiration and access lifecycle functionality
