With the help of a wizard in the admin console. The JWK set and master tokens will be generated automatically for you in the console.
We're also working on providing a web API for configuring your hosted Connect2id server.Which OAuth 2.0 grant types are supported?
The hosted Connect2id server is built to enable handling of the following OAuth grant types:
Resource owner password credentials — Via a web hook that delegates validation of the submitted username and password to an external service.
Web based hooks for handling JWT and SAML 2.0 bearer assertion grants will be provided at a later stage.
The hosted Connect2id server build includes two connectors for sourcing OpenID claims (attributes) about end users:
LDAP — To retrieve claims from a Microsoft Active Directory and other LDAP v3 compatible directory servers.
All client authentication methods supported by the on-premise Connect2id server, save for self_signed_tls_client_auth (until client X.509 certificates become supported by Amazon’s ELB, or a viable workaround is found).Which Connect2id server version am I going to get?
Typically the latest stable version of the Connect2id server. Upgrades will be handled by us, transparently to you and with zero service downtime.What support is included in the subscription?
Basic email support with configuration. If there's sufficient demand we may consider offering more comprehensive support plans, similar to those for the licensed on-premise Connect2id server.What is the billing cycle?
