User representation (representer side)
17.2.5.6. User representation: representer configuration in the Loginapp REST API

This article shows how to configure the representer side of the user representation feature in the Loginapp REST API.

Overview

The user representation feature involves two Airlock IAM instances:

  • The representer side
  • The representee side

Important conceptual information about the user representation feature can be found in 10.8. User representation.

This configuration instruction is about the representer side only.

On the representer IAM two protected self-service flows are configured:

  • A flow to start user representation
  • A flow to stop user representation

Prerequisites

  • An authentication flow for the representer must exist.
  • Either of the license bundles IDM or AVALOQ must be licensed.

  • Loginapp >> Protected Self-Services >> Protected Self-Service Flows

    Create a new flow with flow ID start-user-representation.
