The Identity Provider (IdP) portal resource is a portal page that shows users a list of SAML resources available to them. It makes it easier for users to access resources. Users log in to the IdP portal and see each resource they have access to. They can click on the tile for any resource to open it in a new tab.
One IdP Portal resource can be used by multiple AuthPoint groups. You do not need to add additional IdP resources in AuthPoint.
This diagram shows the data flow of an MFA transaction for the IdP portal when a user authenticates with the push authentication method.
To set up AuthPoint with an IdP portal:
- Select Resources.
- From the Choose a resource type drop-down list, select Idp Portal. Click Add.
- In the Name text box, type a descriptive name for the resource.
- In the Account Alias text box, type a unique value that will be appended to the URL for your IdP portal. The URL for the IdP portal is always https://authpoint.watchguard.com/<account_alias>. In our example, the account alias is washington, so the URL for the IdP portal is https://authpoint.watchguard.com/washington.
- Click Save.
- Assign an access policy for the IdP portal resource to the groups that can use IdP portal. Access policies specify which resources require authentication and which authentication method to use for the users that are in that user group. For more information, see Access Policies.
Once you have set up the IdP portal, users can go to your IdP access URL to log in to the portal. The portal page shows users all of the SAML resources available to them.
The URL for the IdP portal is always https://authpoint.watchguard.com/<account_alias>.
When a user logs in to the IdP portal, they see each resource they have access to. The user can click on the tile for any resource to open that application in a new tab.
