Crowd supports only OpenId Protocol using its CrowdID application to allows Single Sign-On for the number of application but CSM’s applications support’s SAML2.0 Protocol. Here, miniOrange IdP is integrated with the applications and Crowd as Protocol broker service to delegate single sign-on requirements where miniOrange will handle all the SAML Request from the application to redirect the user to Crowd with the OpenID request for authentication and once the authentication is done, send a SAML Response to the application with the attributes received in OpenID Response from Crowd Server.

Advantages of using miniOrange Identity Broker Service:
