Identity Cloud

End-user pages

If you choose hosted pages as your UI integration option, Identity Cloud provides an end-user UI for your end users.

The Identity Cloud end-user UI gives users various options, such as updating their profiles and accessing information. The end-user UI pages vary, depending on how you configure the UI, and on which Identity Cloud capabilities you have purchased.

The Identity Cloud End User UI exposes personal information. Deactivate the Identity Cloud End User UI if:

  • You do not want personal information exposed.

  • You’re using ForgeRock SDKs.

  • You’re using your own APIs to create custom web pages.

Log in as an end user

The way your end users log in can differ based on your Identity Cloud configuration.

For example, an end user can embed the login URL on a portal page or associate it with a button.

The appearance of the end user pages, including branding and color, changes according to the theme settings you configure.

To log in to the Identity Cloud End User UI:

  1. Navigate to a URL. For example, use the URL format:

    https://<tenant-env-fqdn>/am/XUI/?realm=alpha&authIndexType=service&authIndexValue=Login

    This URL logs the end user into the Identity Cloud End User UI Alpha realm using the Login journey.

  2. Enter login credentials.

  3. Click Next. The end user is logged in to the Identity Cloud End User UI.

Dashboard

The dashboard provides a list of items that require end users' attention. For example, if Identity Governance is enabled, items that require an end user’s review appear here. If nothing requires an end user’s attention, an Edit Your Profile button displays that links to the profile.

To access the dashboard:

  1. Log in to the Identity Cloud End User UI.

  2. From the left navigation pane, click Dashboard.

Inbox

The Inbox[1] section lists all items assigned to an end user. For example, if an end user is assigned an access review, items display for the user to act on.

To access the inbox:

  1. Log in to the Identity Cloud End User UI.

  2. From the left navigation pane, click Inbox.

Approvals

The Approvals[1] section lists approval items (submitted access requests) for an approver (designated owner) to act on.

If an approver has delegates assigned, then the approval items are also assigned to the delegates.

To view approval tasks:

  1. Log in to the Identity Cloud End User UI.

  2. From the left navigation pane, click Inbox > Approvals.

For more information, refer to Review request items.

Access reviews

The Access Reviews[1] section lists the access reviews assigned to a certifier (individual assigned to review the access).

If a certifier has delegates assigned, then the access reviews are also assigned to the delegates.

To view access review tasks:

  1. Log in to the Identity Cloud End User UI.

  2. From the left navigation pane, click Inbox > Access Reviews.

For more information, refer to Certify data using access reviews.

My applications

The My Applications section lists the applications an end user has access to.

The following types of applications display in the My Applications section:

  • SAML-based applications - Configure SAML applications and assign end users or a role to the application. The SAML application then displays to the end user under the My Applications page.

  • Bookmark applications - Bookmark applications do not require authentication and are simply a redirect to a URL. When you assign a bookmark application to an end user or a role, it displays shortcut links on the My Applications page. When an end user clicks one of the links, the browser opens a new tab.

Application templates defined in the application catalog and custom OIDC applications do not display in the My Applications section.

To view and navigate to applications:

  1. Log in to the Identity Cloud End User UI.

  2. From the left navigation pane, click My Applications.

  3. The end user refreshing the page and the applications displaying under the My Applications menu item.
