Identity and Access Management (IAM) allows you to leverage SAML-based Web Single Sign-On (SSO) and OAuth API authorization in Address Manager.
With SAML-based Web SSO in Address Manager, all user login credentials are authenticated by the Identity Provider (IdP). Address Manager supports both SP-initiated SSO and IdP-inititated SSO. For more information on how SAML works with Address Manager, refer to Single Sign-On.
The OAuth API authorization allows users access to Address Manager's API endpoints with three authorization grants in the OAuth 2.0 specification:
- Authorization Code Grant
- Implicit Grant
- Resource Owner Password Credentials Grant
Note: SSO for DNS Edge is not related to SSO for Address Manager. DNS Edge must be configured separately as a service provider on your IdP.
