OCI Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) - How to Assign Users/Roles to a Sub Application ? (Doc ID 2477729.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 27, 2023

Applies to:

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


The steps in this doc is to illustrate a workaround to grant users/roles to sub applications.

In the example presented in this doc, there is a SAML application called PedroSAMLApp with two sub applications (PedroSubApp1 and PedroSubApp2), and each one pointing to a different area of the main application.



The objective is when users access My Apps section in IDCS,  the users will have access to PedroSubApp1 only, others will have access to PedroSubApp2 or will have access to both.

In order to accomplish this, grant roles/users directly to the sub applications is required. However, granting the sub applications only to users and/or groups is not supported, as the application links are for Single Sign On only.
