Configure STS instances
You configure STS instances to perform one or more token transformations. Each instance provides configuration details about how SAML v2.0 and/or OpenID Connect output tokens are encrypted or signed. Deployments that support multiple SAML v2.0 and/or OpenID Connect service providers require multiple STS instances.
When you publish an STS instance, you create an STS instance with a given configuration. You can publish instances using the AM admin UI or the REST API.
When you publish a REST STS instance, AM exposes a REST endpoint for accessing the instance, and the instance is immediately available for use to callers.
The SOAP STS service is deprecated, and will be removed in a future release. Installing instances of this service is not supported.
To configure a REST STS instance using the AM admin UI, go to Realms > Realm Name > STS > REST STS Instances, and click Add.
See REST STS configuration properties for detailed information about STS configuration properties.
You can also publish REST STS instances programmatically. AM provides a Publish service, which is a collection of endpoints you can use to publish instances instead of accessing the AM admin UI.
For more information, see Publish REST STS instances.
