IdPs management

Identity providers is another way to manage access and privileges.
The identity providers (IdP) page helps you to manage access and privilege requirements. You can manage the out-of-the-box IdP or add new ones to connect to your external user repositories. Since the Kyndryl Bridge may contain multiple IdPs, you can add, edit, and delete different IdPs. The benefit of IdPs is that you can quickly add primary and secondary access providers to securely manage your Kyndryl Bridge services and applications. To understand which roles and permissions are required, see Roles and permissions.
