About the Backstage Marketplace

The Marketplace hosts a variety of projects, such as authentication methods, that have been supplied by ForgeRock, our Technology Partners and the ForgeRock community.

You can browse and use these projects as you want and additionally, the Marketplace allows:

  • Customers/Partners to share and collaborate on platform-related projects.
  • Technology Partners to monetize and advertise their services.

ForgeRock Support

The following Marketplace nodes are supported by ForgeRock; they have also been added to AM 7:

If you need support with ForgeRock supported projects, you can contact ForgeRock Support in the usual way; see Contacting ForgeRock support for further details.

Caution

The remaining nodes and other projects on the Marketplace are not supported by ForgeRock; it is your responsibility to verify that the software is suitable and safe for use. 

Contributing Marketplace entries

If you want to become a certified technology partner then you can start by applying to become a tech partner here. You can add your Marketplace entry at any time; once you've become a tech partner, your status will be reflected in the Marketplace UI. 

Marketplace uses GitHub to store and serve code, binaries and documentation.
