Identity Platform allows you to add Google-grade authentication to your applications and services, making it easier to protect user accounts and securely managing credentials.
Multi-tenancy takes this concept one step further. Using tenants, you can create unique silos of users and configurations within a single Identity Platform project. These silos might represent different customers, business units, subsidiaries, or some other division. Multi-tenancy is most commonly used in business-to-business (B2B) applications.
You can use Identity Platform tenants to establish a data isolation boundary between resource hierarchies. Each tenant has its own:
- Unique identifier
- Identity providers and authentication methods
- Auditing and Cloud IAM configuration
- Quota allocation
- Identity Platform usage breakdown
This allows tenants to operate autonomously from one another, with different configurations and users, even though they are part of the same project.
Supported sign-in methods
Identity Platform tenants support many of the same authentication methods as non-tenant instances of Identity Platform. Currently supported providers include:
- Social Providers (e.g., Google, Microsoft, LinkedIn, etc)
- SAML Federation
- OpenId Connect Federation
