Identity Provider Integrations

This guide outlines the user authentication options for Xi Frame customers. The following documentation will discuss how to choose the right authentication option and reviews the benefits, applicability, and requirements for each option.

The term “authentication” refers to how the system verifies the identity of a user. By requiring that only known users are allowed to use the system, a Frame customer can ensure that their applications and infrastructure are only used by the appropriate people and that the individual identities of those users are associated with their usage of the system.

Note

If you are attempting to set up an Identity Provider (IdP) integration during your Frame trial, you must first navigate to the Customer entity level and unlock the “Enforce settings” slider.
