Setting up authentication providers is a core customization in any portal. With simplified portal identity provider configuration, we aim to provide in-app guidance for identity provider setup and abstract setup complexities. This helps makers and administrators quickly and easily perform setup for supported identity providers and reduces the usual configuration errors.
The authentication setup experience today is complex and involves multiple steps. With Azure Active Directory B2C as a provider, we make the experience easier with a step-by-step wizard and automate as much as possible, so a user does not have to follow long documentation steps to configure the authentication manually.
With other identity providers, the feature provides guidance and an intuitive configuration experience. For example, for OAuth 2.0-based login providers, the setup provides links to provider documentation, easy-to-copy portal redirect URLs, and instructions to obtain and configure Client ID and Client Secret settings.
