Pros and Cons

  • Easy to set-up.
  • Saves a lot of time that otherwise would be spent setting up and using the SSO SAM login.
  • Secured, as we don't need to expose any of the SAM security credentials.
  • Login/logout set-up in the application is easy and smooth.
  • Straight forward examples in different programming languages like JS/node, Java and others would help developers set-up applications faster.

What is IBM Cloud App ID?

IBM Cloud App ID helps developers who are not security experts to easily add authentication to their apps, and protect their APIs and app back-ends running on IBM Cloud.

Developers can add a variety of login-in types:
  • Email or username and password
  • Enterprise
  • Social
App ID includes a cloud user repository to on-board new users, so they can log-in with email/username & passwords, with pre-built self-service workflows (password reset, email validation etc.) App ID also manages user specific data that developers can use to build personalized app experiences.

Additional documentation, pricing, tutorial, and support information.
