Identity Provider Overview

Follow

Identity Providers are typically servers that facilitate the Authentication and Authorization of Users. This page provides an overview of all configured Identity Providers in IDHub.

The built-in Identity Provider (IDHUB_IDP_UP) (which is configured during the first time installation of the Application) cannot be deleted.

A new Identity Provider can be created by clicking "Add new IDP" in the top-right corner.

Sorting, filtering and changing columns

The initial Identity Provider (IDP) Overview page is a list of all the current IDPs in the system.  The list can be sorted by clicking the column headings. One click to  sort descending and click again to sort ascending.

The order of columns can be changed by dragging and dropping the column headings.

The list of Identity Providers can be filtered, by typing in the text boxes under each column header.

Columns can be hidden by clicking the 3 bar settings button on the  right after the last column heading. This will open a menu. If a column  name is ticked it is visible if there is a cross before the name then  the column is hidden. To toggle the states click the ticks and crosses.

All of these settings are stored in the local storage of the browser  to persist the state between pages and visits to the application. If the local storage is cleared these settings are lost.
