Single Sign-On into API Cloud UI

WSO2 API Cloud is a web-based API management suite but you can now also use your corporate identity system to log into its web user interfaces!

To configure the integration, click External Users on the Configure menu:

You can then select one of the two ways to integrate:

  1. Direct integration with your Identity Provider (IdP), or
  2. LDAP or Active Directory integration via WSO2 Identity Cloud.

Here’s a quick overview of how these work.

Integration with an Identity Provider (IdP)

If you already use an identity provider such as Shibboleth, Google Apps, or ADFS, simply pick the corresponding provider from the dropdown list and supply the additional parameters:

WSO2 API Cloud will then start using this IdP to get users authenticated into the Publisher, Admin, and API Store user interfaces:

See our documentation for more details: Configure an External Identity Provider for API Cloud Authentication.

LDAP or Active Directory integration via WSO2 Identity Cloud

In this case, you use WSO2 Identity Cloud agent to get your local directory server connected to WSO2 Cloud.

You then simply tell API Cloud which local groups need to be mapped to which roles in API Cloud: who will be able to publish the APIs, subscribe to them, and so on:

See this documentation for details:Configure an On-Premise User Store for API Cloud Authentication.

Single Sign-On (SSO) makes your API management easier to use and more secure. Try it today in WSO2 API Cloud.
