Deprecate skip option for tenant administrator MFA

Key features

Service accounts

You can now use service accounts to request access tokens for most Identity Cloud REST API endpoints without relying on a particular identity in your system:

  • Call Identity Cloud APIs programmatically without needing a human identity.

  • Access AM or IDM APIs in the same way using a signed JWT.

  • Set scopes on each service account to assign only necessary permissions to access tokens.

  • Use for automation and CI/CD tooling.

For details, refer to Service accounts.

Key features

Workforce application and connector management

In new tenants created on or after January 12, 2023, you can use the improved applications page to integrate Identity Cloud with external data stores or identity providers. The applications page acts as a one-stop location where you can:

  • Register and provision popular federation-capable applications quickly and easily by choosing from a library of templates, such as Salesforce and Workday.

  • Register and provision your organization’s custom applications.

  • Manage data, properties, rules, SSO, provisioning, users, and groups for an application.

  • View the connection status of each application.

  • Activate and deactivate an application.

For details, refer to Application management.

Event hooks

Event hooks let you trigger scripts during various stages of the lifecycle of users, roles, assignments, and organizations.

You can trigger scripts when one of these identity objects is created, updated, retrieved, deleted, validated, or stored in the repository. You can also trigger a script when a change to an identity object triggers an implicit synchronization operation.

Post-action scripts let you manipulate identity objects after they are created, updated, or deleted.

For details, refer to Event hooks.

Daon IdentityX authentication nodes

The new Daon authentication nodes let you integrate with the Daon IdentityX platform for MFA with mobile authentication or out-of-band authentication using a separate, secure channel.

For details, refer to Marketplace.

Onfido authentication nodes

The new Onfido authentication nodes let you use Onfido’s solution for collecting and sending document identification and, optionally, biometrics to the Onfido backend for verification.

For details, refer to Marketplace.
