Whereas a client is a piece of software that requests tokens from U4IDS, the tenant represents an organization that is known to the client. A client may have many tenants defined. The tenant will define how the users in an organization will authenticate through U4IDS.
Configuring tenant properties
When a tenant is registered with U4IDS you must configure the properties that connects the tenant to an external Identity Provider.
It is important to understand that a tenant can be configured with the following protocols:
- OpenID Connect
This dictates how the tenant communicates with the external identity system. The clients that make an authentication request to U4IDS on behalf of a tenant will strictly use the OpenID Connect protocol.
