Boomi Flow applications need an identity service (like Salesforce or Box) that is used to authenticate access to a flow (with a username/password, token, etc.) and authorize access to parts of a flow (permissions for a swimlane, flow, etc.).
Our Boomi Flow tenant comes with the ManyWho Identity Service, which we can use to build public apps or apps that do not need third-party authentication. The service needs to be installed in subtenants.
If you like, let’s begin by watching a 25-second video. We can also jump directly to the instructions (right after the video).
Here are the steps to follow along. Let’s open our Flow tenant and get started.
- Click Services.
- Click Install Service.
- Copy-paste ManyWho Identity Service in the Name field.
- Copy-paste the URL https://flow.manywho.com/plugins/manywho/api/identity/1 in the URL for the service field. Make sure there are no white spaces.
- Click Continue.
- We will click Continue a second time.
The identity service is now installed and ready to be used.
