RapidIdentity Product Guides - 2019 Rolling Release


To allow users to authenticate to RapidIdentity through any of the supported social networks, administrators must access the corresponding social network's developer's page.

Administrators will need the organization's redirect URI, which will take the following format.


Once the process is complete, administrators can enable the social network authentication method and input the corresponding ID and Secret field values.

The configuration sequences listed below for each social network are the simplest and most recommended setups possible that will return a viable social network authentication. Some of the social network methods allow for more configuration options beyond what is listed in the sequences below. Administrators developing authentication policies should use caution when selecting social network configuration options beyond what is listed below.

The social networks may update their development pages periodically, thus the screenshots listed below may vary slightly. If a discrepancy is observed, please contact Support and the documentation will be updated as soon as possible.
