Identity Cloud

Register an application

Identity Cloud includes a library of templates for OIDC applications that makes the process of registration and configuration quick and easy. When using a template, Identity Cloud sets the OAuth 2.0 grant type based on the type of application you register. The system sets OpenID connect default options as well. You can then customize configurations in the application’s client profile. You can then set up sign on, provisioning, and users and groups.

If you are new to using this feature, we recommend that you first review Application management before you begin this process.

To view the registration process for template-based applications, click the following image:

After registration, you can configure application specific details, including application name, icon, entry point URL, SSO, authorization, access indicators, and required connector and mapping information.

After an application is registered, Identity Cloud displays the application’s status as one of the following:

  • Active: The application successfully registered with Identity Cloud.

  • Inactive: The application is not successfully registered with Identity Cloud and requires additional setup.
