Overview

Cirrus’ External Identity Provider is a SAML compliant identity provider with a lightweight registration capability. To create an external identity, the end user provides a name, email address and any custom data required. The Registration process validates the email address and collects a password that meets the policies of the organization.

Once registered, the identity can be used for accessing any SAML service provider (or CAS with the Cirrus Proxy service).

  • End Users can create an account in the External Identity Provider Service (upper right) to access enterprise applications (in the middle)

  • The External Identity Provider can be a peer with other federated SAML identity providers

  • Easily configurable to reflects the organization branding and credential policies

  • Integrated into both the Cirrus Identity Invitation and Account Linking solutions
