Hosted Login Provisioning Videos

The initial provisioning of Hosted Login is pretty easy; after all, Akamai does most of the work for you. However, that doesn't mean you won't still have questions: how do you know know if you were given a customer ID number; how do you know if a login policy was created for you; how can you be sure that your token policies are configured correctly? The videos found on this page help you address key questions such as these.

Verifying Your Application Client Settings

Running Time: 3:31

For Hosted Login to work, your application client must have several settings in place and configured. This video shows you how to verify these settings.

If the required settings don't exist (or haven't been configured), you'll need to add/configure the settings before you can begin to use Hosted Login.

Verifying Your Akamai Customer ID

Running Time: 0:48

Your Akamai customer ID is a crucial piece of information; among other things, you can't manage Hosted Login without knowing your customer ID. (Your ID must be included in the URLs for your OpenID Connect Configuration APIs.) Here's how you can verify your customer ID.

If you can't find your Akamai customer ID number you'll need to contact your Identity Cloud representative.

Verifying Your Entity Type Schema

Running Time: 1:10

If you're a long-time Identity Cloud customer, you might have existing user accounts stored in an "old" entity type database. Can you continue to use that entity type now that you've switched to Hosted Login? Maybe: it depends on whether the schema includes all the attributes required by Hosted Login. Here's how you can determine what (if anything) needs to be done to your existing entity type to make it Hosted Login-compatible.

If any of the required attributes are missing, those missing attributes must be added to the schema before the entity type can be used with Hosted Login.

Verifying Your Hosted Login Flow

Running Time: 1:02

You can't use just any-old flow with Hosted Login; instead, your flow must include a number of required features (e.g., definitions for the new Hosted Login-specific screens). This video demonstrates a quick way to see if a given flow might be Hosted Login-compatible.

If these values are missing from your flow, then that flow is not Hosted Login-compatible. Contact your Identity Cloud representative if you don't seem to have any flows that will work with Hosted Login.

Verifying Your Public OIDC Login Client

Running Time: 2:01

OpenID Connect login clients help manage the login and registration experience. Although Hosted Login supports multiple client types, public clients are recommended for use with user authorization requests: that's because public clients don't require the use of a client secret. This video shows you to verify that you've been issued a public login client.

If you don't have a public OIDC client you can create one by calling the /{customerId}/config/clients endpoint.

Verifying Your Login Policy

Running Time: 1:53

Login policies help manage the user login experience by doing such things as specifying the exact paths to the Capture domain and the user profile entity type, and by defining the login URL for the associated directory. Here's how you can verify that a login policy has been created for your use.

If you don't have a login policy, you can create one by calling the /{customerId}/config/loginPolicies endpoint.
