Salesforce Solution

Salesforce began with the vision of reinventing Customer Relationship Management (CRM). Since then salesforce has changed the way enterprise software is delivered and used, changing the industry forever. All Salesforce products run entirely in the cloud so there are no expensive setup costs, no maintenance, and employees can work from any device with an internet connection – smartphone, tablet or laptop.

Salesforce makes CRM easy to use for small businesses and large-scale enterprises. The platform also enables you to manage all interactions with your customers and prospects, so your organization can grow and succeed.

Salesforce as IdP (Identity Provider)

Salesforce can act as a single sign-on (SSO) identity provider to service providers, allowing end users to easily and securely access many web and mobile applications with one login. When using SAML for federated authentication, enable Salesforce as an identity provider and then set up connected apps. However, the OpenID Connect protocol for SSO authentication doesn’t require enabling Salesforce as an identity provider.

Salesforce as IdP can also be used for configuring multiple community users.
