How does it work?

The federation gateway allows the user to select the identity provider of their choice, for example Microsoft. The user is redirected to this identity provider and logs in there. The identity provider returns a token to the system. The system then uses this token to authenticate with any service.

When should you use it?

  • When you want the user to log in, without them having to create an account on your system
