Application credentials

Plugin applications, Form applications, and Basic Auth applications have a Credentials tab, where you specify the source of the login credentials that will be autofilled when a user launches the application. For example:


Individual users' login credentials are then captured in Credential sets.

To get started, Set credential source.


For SAML applications, OIDC applications, and WS Federation applications, HelloID instead uses Application mapping sets to build the claim set. In this case, the application will not have a Credentials tab. Instead, there will be a link to the relevant mapping set on the Configuration tab:


Note that a small number of SAML, OIDC, and WS Fed apps are exceptions and do use credentials instead of mapping sets. In this case, the credentials are used internally to build the claim set, so the end result is the same.
