User representation (representer side)
User representation: representer configuration in the Loginapp REST UI

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

Prerequisites

  • The corresponding protected self-service flows must be configured in the Loginapp REST API.

Instructions

  • 1.
    Go to:
  • Loginapp >> UI Settings >> Protected Self-Service UIs >> User Representation (add plugin if missing).

  • 2.
    In property Flow to Start Representation, select the corresponding flow (e.g. start-user-representation).
  • 3.
    If required change the representee and target location parameter names. They must be the same as the corresponding settings in the representee IAM.
  • 4.
    In property Flow to Stop Representation, select the corresponding flow (e.g. stop-user-representation).
  • 5.
    Activate the configuration.
  • The representer side of the user representation feature is now configured in the Loginapp REST UI.

How to verify

  • Log in as a user that is allowed to represent other users (according to the Access Condition and the Authorization Condition in the corresponding protected self-service flows).
  • To start representation, use the following URL in the browser: https://representer-iam/auth/ui/app/protected/representation/start?user=some-user-to-represent&target=/test.
  • This should result in a representation SSO ticket being sent to the representee IAM. Note that if the representee IAM is not configured correctly or not available, the process will fail when trying to terminate a possibly already ongoing representation session.
  • To stop representation use the following URL in the browser: https://representer-iam/auth/ui/app/protected/representation/stop
