Overview

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
