About the Identity Providers Page

An identity provider enables you to log in to multiple applications by using the same username and password.

Paragon Automation Release 21.2 allows you to use OpenID Connect and Google to provide the authentication services; that is, you can use the username and password of your Anuta ATOM, which uses the OpenID Connect authentication services, or your Google account to log in to Paragon Automation.

To access this page, click Administration > Authentication > Identity Providers on the left navigation menu.

Tasks You Can Perform

You can perform the following tasks from this page:

  • View details of an identity provider.

    To view details of an identity provider, click the details icon that appears when you hover over the identity provider. Alternatively, select the identity provider and click More > Detail. The details is displayed in the Details for <identity-provider> pane that appears on the right side of the Identity Providers page.

  • Add an identity provider; see Add Identity Providers.

  • Edit and Delete an identity provider; see Edit and Delete Identity Providers.

  • Add custom roles to authorize single sign-on (SSO) users.

    You can define custom roles and assign them to users logging into Paragon Automation by using their Anuta ATOM or Google credentials. For information about adding custom roles to SSO users, see Edit and Delete Identity Providers.

  • Filter Entries—Filter the table entries by adding new filtering criteria.

    Hover over the Filter (funnel) icon and select Add Filter. On the Add Criteria page, select the filtering criteria from the Field and Condition list, and enter the text to be compared in the Value field. Click Add.

    The filtered table entries are listed and the filter criteria name is displayed above the table column names.

    You can click the cross (X) icon (next to the filter name) to remove the filtering criteria.

    Note:
    • You can add multiple filtering criteria. Once you add the multiple filtering criteria, you can select the And condition to display the entries matching all the filtering criteria or select the Or condition to display the entries matching any one of the filtering criteria.

    • Quick filter: Save the filtering criteria as quick filters. Once you have added all the filtering criteria, you can save a particular criteria or multiple criteria for future use by clicking Save.

      On the Save Filter window, enter a name for the filter, optionally toggle the Set as Default button if you want to use this filtering criteria by default, and click OK.

      The saved filters are displayed under Quick Filters when you hover over the Filter (funnel) icon. You can then apply these saved filters to the table entries.

  • Show/Hide Columns—Choose to show or hide a specific column in the table.

    Hover over the More Options (vertical ellipsis) > Show/Hide Columns and select the Column-Name check box of the columns you want to display in the table.

  • Reset Preference—Reset the displayed columns to the default set of columns for each tab in the table.

    Hover over the More Options (vertical ellipsis) and select Reset Preference.

  • Sort Entries—Click the column name to highlight the up and down arrows next to the column name. Sort the table entries in ascending or descending order of that column by clicking the up or down arrow respectively.
