Setting up Authentication for Cloud Portal using Cloud Identity – III

This blog is part of a series which is related to setting up Cloud Identity to authenticate Cloud Portal in different scenarios.

Setting up Authentication for Cloud Portal using Cloud Identity

Part 1 – Setting up SCI as IdP for a vendor facing Cloud Portal

Part 2 – Using Social Identity Providers to access Cloud Portal

Part 3 – Setup Self-registration form

Part 4 – Manage Cloud Portal Catalogs and roles

Part 5 – Mapping of groups between SCI and Cloud Portal

Part 6 – Setup 2FA for Cloud Portal access

In the previous blog, we had a look at how to setup the authentication of an external vendor in the Cloud Portal using social identity providers configured in SCI. In this blog, I am going to cover a scenario where the vendors are not setup as users in SCI. Lots of people join and leave a vendor organization. In some scanrios, it might be easy to provide a Self User registration form to capture the new user.

Configure Registration form in Cloud Identity

Let us repeat the same process, but with a different vendor called Raj Kumar. Raj has recently joined a vendor organization and hence is not yet registered in SCI.  To enable Raj to access the Cloud Portal site, we need to first enable self-registration form. This will enable users to register into SCI using an online Form. These forms are highly customizable and can capture the relevant information from the user registering for access.

Login to SCI as an administrator and select the HCP Account which has been registered as an application. Navigate to the “Authentication and Access” tab click on “User Application Access”.


I will login as Raj to the email account provided during registration and activate the account.


This completes the registration process. There will be success message stating that the SCI user has been created and has also been linked


Finally, I can login into the Cloud Portal as Raj and access the business applications.


In the next blog, we shall see how to setup and assign user roles in the Cloud Portal

      Can you allow users to self register without linking the new account to a social identity provider?

      Turns out it wasn't because of the social sign on. Adding it didn't allow self registration. Any possible reason self registration is not working after I made the setting for the app?
