4.17. Enabling Third Party AuthenticationΒΆ

To enhance sign in options for your users, you can enable third party authentication between institutional authentication systems and your implementation of the edX platform. After you enable third party authentication, users can register and sign in to your Open edX site with their campus or institutional credentials.

This section includes information for teams involved in identity management at Open edX installations, including DevOps (development operations) and IT. The Enabling Third Party Authentication with edX Edge topic describes procedures for members of the DevOps and IT teams at an edX partner institution.
