API Login

Get Started

This document will guide you through configuring and implementing Identity Cloud’s Authentication APIs - the most flexible, custom-built approach to adding the Identity Cloud registration solution to your customer sites and apps.

When you complete this guide, you’ll understand the best practice for integrating APIs into your sites and apps that allow your end users to:

  • Create a new account
  • Login with a password or with a social account (like Facebook)
  • Merge a social account with their user profile
  • Verify their email address
  • Reset a forgotten password
  • Manage user profile information

In this guide, you’ll make RESTful API calls to the Identity Cloud using your platform or language of choice. We provide complete sample calls in cURL format. Make sure to complete the Gather Your Details section in next steps so we can auto-populate the calls for you.
