Delegated Authentication allows your users to authenticate against your organisation's Identity Access Management solution instead of using Nearmap credentials. Users will be able to use the same credentials they use to access applications within your organisation. With the optional Just-In-Time (JIT) Provisioning, new users can be automatically provisioned to access Nearmap applications if enabled.
Work with your Nearmap Account Manager to get your Delegated Authentication product added to your account before you start. Once that is done, follow the instructions in Set Up a Connection to create a Delegated Authentication connection.
NOTE: Nearmap Delegated Authentication is not an SSO solution; you must start the login process from Nearmap MapBrowser or MyAccount, not from your organisation's IdP.
Benefits of Delegated Authentication
- Password policies, such as complexity and frequency of change, are managed by your organisation.
- Users will have one less password to remember.
- Your account will be more secure as users are less likely to share their username and password.
- New starters can be automatically provisioned on first login, reducing the need for you to invite new users to your account. This is available if you select Just-in-Time Provisioning.
