Adding a Social Identity Provider

Add a social identity provider (IdP) so that users can sign in to an identity domain in IAM with their social credentials.

Configure the IdP to Redirect to IAM.
  1. Create an application for the social IdP.

    For example, go to the Google developer site to create a Google application.

  2. Configure the value of redirectUrl in the application

    The value of redirectUrl must have the format:

    https://<Identity domain base URL>/oauth2/v1/social/callback

    Ensure that the value of redirectUrl doesn't contain port number :443. If it does, update the existing URL to remove the port number or add a new URL without the port number to the IdP application by using the external provider developers' website.

    Each social IdP calls these URLs by a different name:
    • Facebook: Valid OAuth redirect URIs

    • Google and LinkedIn: Authorized redirect URL

    • Microsoft: Redirect URLs

    • Twitter: Callback URL

  3. Ensure that you retain the Client ID and the Client Secret values from the application that you created at the social IdP. You use this ID and secret when configuring the social IdP in the identity domain.

You can choose from the following predefined social login types:
  • Facebook

  • Google

  • LinkedIn

  • Microsoft

  • OpenID Connect

  • Twitter

  1. Open the navigation menu and click Identity & Security. Under Identity, click Domains.
  2. Click the name of the identity domain that you want to work in. You might need to change the compartment to find the domain that you want. Then, click Security and then Identity providers.
  3. Click Add IdP, and then select Add Social IdP.
  4. In the Add social identity provider panel, select a social login.
  5. Enter a name and description for the social IdP.
  6. In the Name and Description fields, enter a name and description for the social identity provider.

    The social identity provider name can contain spaces. However, it can't contain special characters. Avoid entering confidential information.
  7. Enter the client ID and the client secret for the social login type.
  8. To allow users to link their social accounts, select the Enable account linking check box. To prevent users from linking their social accounts, clear the check box.

    You can prevent users from linking to their social accounts for security or organizational purposes. For example, if a hacker accesses the user's social account, the hacker can't sign in to the identity domain to access resources and applications.
  9. Click IdP.
  10. On the details page for the IdP you created, click Activate IdP.
  11. Log in with the social IdP.

    You might encounter this error message: “Not Logged In: You are not logged in. Please log in and try again.”

    The most likely cause is that the application you created on the social IdP side has the wrong client ID or redirect URL in the configuration. Check the client ID and the redirect URL configuration, and try to log in again.
