How to Assign Users/Roles to a Sub Application? (Doc ID 2477729.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 07, 2022

Applies to:

Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The goal of this document is to show the workaround that can be used in order to grant users/roles to sub applications.

The use case is the following, we have defined a SAML application (PedroSAMLApp) with two sub applications (PedroSubApp1 and PedroSubApp2) each one pointing to a different area of the main application.



Our objective is that when some users access their myapps section in IDCS that they only see PedroSubApp1, others PedroSubApp2 and others both.

In order to do this we need to be able to grant roles/users directly to the sub applications however as we saw in <Document 2477583.1> - Can We Assign Roles And/Or Users To Sub Applications? granting only sub applications to users and/or groups is not supported as application links are only for Single Sign On.
