RapidIdentity Product Guides - 2019 Rolling Release

Edit an Application

Applications administrators can edit the application configuration in the Catalog. The Edit action is accessible by first accessing the Application Details.

Follow these steps to edit an application:

  1. To access the Application Details in Grid view, select an application or use the cursor to hover over the application and click Details.

  2. To access the Application Details in List view, use the cursor to hover over the application and click Details.

  3. From the Details sidebar, click Edit.

  4. Administrators can choose to edit the fields in the Application Details and SSO tabs. After updating the application configuration, click Save.


The Application Details and SSO tabs contain the fields to define the application, determine how the application is presented to users, and the manner in which users access the application.


The Application Name, Description, and Icon do not have labels. These three configurations appear in at the top of the Edit Application sidebar.

Administrators can edit the application icon by clicking the pencil, clicking an icon, and then clicking Select. Alternatively, administrators can upload a custom application icon.

RapidIdentity automatically extracts the application colors and administrators can select one of the extracted colors or use the color picker to define the application background color.

Table 350. Application Details Fields

Details Field



Required. The user responsible for this application.


Applications can be assigned to existing Categories. Initially, only My Applications is an available Category. Categories are created by navigating to My Applications in the left sidebar and selecting the gear icon next to All.

Application URL

Required. The application URL. Tokens may be used in the Application URL. All LDAP attributes are valid.

Application Access

Can be one of three types: Authenticated and Anonymous Users; Anonymous Users Only; or Authenticated Users Only.


Determines if the application icon link will be visible in RapidIdentity Portal.


Required. This value allows administrators to determine both the relative order and application icon size users see when accessing My Applications.

Assigning priority is very useful when users have access to large numbers of applications, particularly if accessing applications from a mobile device.

Applications can have equivalent priority (e.g. 3 applications set to priority 100).

Access Control

Can be one of three types: None; Role-based; or Attribute-based.

Selecting either Role-based or Attribute-based triggers fields to define roles or attributes to determine the user population that can access the application.

ole-based allows administrators to define roles to include or exclude users matching that DN of the role. Attribute-based allows users matching the LDAP filter to access the application

Table 351. Application SSO Fields

SSO Field



The type of application authentication to use.

  • Simple: no authentication. This is typically used with federation/SSO provided the Service Provider is configured in RapidIdentity Appliance. Simple does not contain any additional fields.

  • Form Fill Authentication (via Plugin): uses the RapidIdentity browser plugin to authenticate.

  • Form Fill Authentication: pass attributes to authenticate a user.

  • HTTP Basic Authentication: send username and password in the URL field.
