Associating User Accounts¶
WSO2 Identity Server (WSO2 IS) allows you to associate multiple accounts you may have, and switch between accounts once you associate accounts. WSO2 IS also allows you to connect your federated user credentials with your WSO2 Identity Server account. This topic provides instructions on how to associate all your user accounts to the account with which you have logged on.
If you want to associate user accounts of federated users via the
user portal, add the following configuration to the
[user.association] enable_for_federated_users = true
The recommended approach is to have the
enable_for_federated_users parameter set to
false so that manual
federated user association is not allowed by default via the user portal.
Follow one of the two approaches below to associate all your user accounts:
Using the AdminService¶
The first approach is to use the
AdminService . You
can access this admin service using the following URL: '
'. If you are new to admin services, see Calling Admin
The following actions can be performed using above admin service.
- Create a new user account association
- Delete an existing user account association
- Get all associated user accounts of the logged in user
- Switch between associated user accounts without re-authenticate with the system
Using the user portal¶
The WSO2 Identity Server user portal can be used to associate the accounts. You can associate a local user account or a federated user account. See Linked Accounts under User Portal for details.Top
