If we’ve just moved ahead of ‘Getting Started with OpenIG 4‘, the following screen-cast might of some interest. In fact, this is a remake of a video that’s posted here, which was based on now older version of ForgeRock OpenIG.
So what’s in the video here? We’ve a CSV file with some User details. A user tries to access a URI, which hits OpenIG, who by using some Route Configuration files, looks up User Credentials from the CSV file and posts it to the HTTP Server, to get a User Profile Page (Post Authentication Landing Page) in return. So the Client, without having to go through the inconvenience of supplying his/her User Credentials, gets the Post Authentication Landing Page from the HTTP Server. See, if my attempt to capture the flow below makes sense.
If that didn’t make your life easy, hopefully the demonstration in the video will. Enjoy!
