IM adoption guide
This topic covers the Identity Management (IM) concepts in your product and discusses how users and content workloads can leverage your product IM services for authentication and authorization. It also covers the IM features and the related API specification.
At a high level, your product provides authentication support via the OpenID Connect (OIDC) specification. Your product also supports Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML)-based federated authentication is also supported. The authorization framework aligns with the Cloud IM with some your product-specific customization, such as grouping user and resource entities under a team construct.
The authentication and authorization details are explored in the following topics:
- How a user uses your product authentication and authorization services
- How a content workload uses your product authentication and authorization services
- How IM is used for service to service communication
- How IM is used for OpenShift
