Credential Mapping

You can choose to enforce either Fixed credential mapping or Conditional credential mapping.


Select this option to ensure that a fixed set of credentials is applied to all users regardless of their user type or role. The Fixed section has the following fields:

Field Description
Identity Provider Select an Identity Provider to authenticate user credentials


Select Conditional credential mapping to enforce credential mapping for authenticated users and anonymous users. Credentials are mapped for authenticated users if the request comes from an authenticated service. Credentials are mapped for anonymous users if the request comes from an unathenticated service.

The Conditional section has the following fields:

Field Description
Role based Identity Providers Type roles for authenticated users and associate an Identity Provider with each role. You can reuse the same Identity Provider for multiple roles.
Authenticated Identity Provider Select an Identity Provider shared resource for authenticated users.
Anyonymous Identity Provider

To allow anonymous users access to your secure application, specify an Identity Provider. To not allow anonymous users access, do not specify an Identity Provider .

Note: Application logic can also affect how credentials are mapped for anonymous users. For example, application logic might dictate that anonymous requests are redirected to specific entry points. If an anonymous request is directed to an enforced entry point, the request is rejected.
