Configure AxAuth IDP for End-User Applications


The AxAuth IDP is a managed ID Provider supported by Mosaic User Service. AxAuth serves the special purpose of maintaining a standalone user store for an end-user application. If the end-user application intends to give a user sign up feature, in addition to enabling authentication from known IDPs, the developers can use AxAuth to deliver this functionality.

This article describes how a User Store in AxAuth can be configured to be used in the User Service.

Enabling required services

Configuring AxAuth IDP for end-user application user management requires the Mosaic environment to have both AxAuth and User services enabled.

In the User Store details (of the End-User user store), the User Sign up Webhook & Forgot Password Webhook shall be configured for these features to be usable in the real world. If they are not configured yet, a warning message will be displayed to do so.
