Crowd OAuth/OpenID Server

The Crowd OAuth/OpenID server app can be used to allow users to sign in to your client application with their Crowd account. Here we will go through a guide to configure an OAuth/OpenID client on your Crowd and by the end of this guide, users will be able to login to your application using the Crowd credentials.

Pre Requisites:

To configure your Identity Provider integration with Crowd SAML SSO, you need the following items.

  • Crowd should be installed and configured.
  • Admin credentials are set up in Crowd.
