  • 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.
