Yahoo Social Identity Provider Configuration Details

You can set up the Yahoo social identity provider through the Admin UI or in a conf/identityProvider-yahoo.json file. IDM generates the identityProvider-yahoo.json file when you configure and enable this social identity provider in the Admin UI. Alternatively, you can create the file manually.

The following table includes the information shown in the Admin UI Yahoo Provider pop-up window, along with associated information in the identityProvider-yahoo.json file.


Yahoo supports URLs using only HTTPS, only on port 443. For more information on how to configure IDM to use these ports, see Host and Port Information.
