WSO2 Identity Server 7.0 Expands Developer Productivity

WSO2 is releasing WSO2 Identity Server 7.0 to address the demand for trusted digital experiences for all users.

According to the company, version 7.0 optimizes the developer experience via a new authentication API for native, in-app, browser-less authentication; new visual editor that enables side-by-side graphical and code views; and new one-click access to application templates and authentication methods.

“Organizations delivering digital experiences need an IAM solution that enables developers to readily adapt to the evolving needs of the business, customers and partners,” said Geethika Cooray, vice president and general manager of identity and access management at WSO2. “Our secret sauce has always been to provide developers an awesome experience that maximizes their productivity and flexibility, and WSO2 Identity Server 7.0 takes that to a whole new level.”

WSO2 Identity Server 7.0 also adds support for comprehensive business-to-business (B2B) functionality and financial-grade API security. Additionally, it now shares the same code base and modern user interface (UI) offered with WSO2 Private Identity Cloud and Asgardeo, WSO2’s identity as a service (IDaaS) solution.

Version 7.0 builds on the proven capabilities of WSO2 Identity Server, which manages more than 1 billion identities worldwide. The extensible, API-driven, developer-friendly product enables developers to harness the power of IAM without being security experts.

 It incorporates the ability to federate, authenticate and manage identities; bridge across heterogeneous identity protocols; and secure access to web and mobile applications along with API-based endpoints. Now it offers several new capabilities designed to enhance developers’ experiences.

The new authentication API for app-native, browser-less authentication lets developers create in-app login flows instead of redirecting to a browser—optimizing the user experience without compromising security.

A new visual editor offers side-by-side graphical and code views. So, as developers are building an app, they can now witness the login journey as the user does while also seeing the underlying code, helping to improve the quality and speed of development.

Multiple new app templates and authentication methods are now available to developers via one-click access.

WSO2 Identity Server 7.0 now goes beyond extensive business-to-consumer (B2C) customer IAM (CIAM) and workforce IAM capabilities to also offer the industry’s most comprehensive B2B CIAM support.

With Version 7.0, WSO2 Identity Server now shares the same code base and UI with WSO2 Private Identity Cloud and Asgardeo IDaaS. So, WSO2 customers have unprecedented flexibility to seamlessly migrate between cloud and on-premises deployments as needed—and even maintain hybrid environments—all while delivering a consistent, best-in-class user experience (UX) for developers, consumers, and other users.

The new capabilities and unified IAM experience are now available with WSO2 Identity Server 7.0 and the latest releases of Asgardeo and WSO2 Private Identity Cloud.
