The Identifier First Adapter works best in conjunction with authentication policies and setting expected attribute values to enforce authentication requirements.
The Identifier First Adapter is designed to identify user populations. It supports email
addresses natively: it extracts the email address suffix and exposes it downstream through
domain attribute. Additionally, the adapter can leverage datastore
queries to fulfill the
domain attribute or other extended attributes to
support identifiers of other kinds.
The Identifier First Adapter is most effective when used in conjunction with authentication
policies. The policy paths are created by having rules matching expected values of the
domain attribute or other extended attribute. Each expected value forms
its own policy path, to which a series of authentication sources can be appended to enforce
the desired authentication requirements.
