Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud App ID

IBM Cloud App ID is used to implement SSO between web applications deployed and running in IBM Cloud and IBM Connections running on-premise. App ID addresses the following business problem: it enables a web application to be used only by users authorized by company's LDAP server. Only authorized users can access the web application running in IBM Cloud.
  • Ease of use and configuration
  • Free App ID instance available for evaluation
  • Stability and availablility (no incidents so far)
  • Documentation can be improved
  • Overall impact was positive. A positive side effect of the project's effort was the implementation of SAML based SSO within the company.
Using IBM Cloud App ID we have easily added authentication to a web application deployed and running in IBM Cloud. The application is now secure and can be accessed only by users authenticated by the company's LDAP.
Person names (first and last) were required to be obtained for the purpose of the application. This was achieved by integrating IBM Cloud App ID into a web application that uses OAuth2. The application was able to retrieve user information when a user is authenticated by App ID.
IBM Cloud App ID was selected because a free tier instance was available so we could experiment with it right away.
IBM Cloud AppId is well suited to add authentication to applications running in IBM Cloud with minimal development effort.
