Installing the ManyWho Identity service

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.

Here are the steps to follow along. Let’s open our Flow tenant and get started.

  1. Click Services.
  2. Click Install Service.
  3. Copy-paste ManyWho Identity service in the Name field.
  4. Copy-paste the URL  https://services.manywho.com/api/identity/1 in the URL for the service field. Make sure there are no white spaces. Click Continue.
  5. We will click Continue a second time.

    The identity service is now installed and ready to be used.
