Read about ACP workspaces

The concept of the ACP workspace, its types and characteristics are explained in Cloudentity ACP administrative workspaces.

Add workspace

Create a workspace in ACP.


If this is your first log in to ACP, the process of creating a workspace starts automatically. You can also create workspaces from the tenant-level Workspace Directory or from within another workspace using the contextual menu.

Adding a workspace from the tenant-level Workspace Directory:

Adding a workspace from another workspace using the contextual menu:

Define your workspace type

Select a type of your workspace from the available templates and click NEXT.


Workspace type determines the type of protected applications and services and the configuration of the authentication server.

Add workspace details

Enter a name for your workspace into the Display Name field (1) and click NEXT (5).

Optional settings

  • Modify Workspace ID (2) if you don’t like the ID generated automatically from your workspace display name.

  • Change the default grey theme color (3) for your workspace by selecting any other option from the color palette.

  • Enable the demo application (4) by selecting the checkbox.

Connect the user pool

  1. Connect the workspace to your users' identity provider (IDP) using one of the following ways:

    • Select one of the IDPs that ACP supports.


    See Connecting identity providers to ACP for instructions on how to configure connections to IDPs supported by ACP.

    • Choose Sandbox IDP to configure a test account using mock data.

    • Select Custom IDP to build non-OIDC or non-SAML IDP Connections.


    Custom IDP connection allows you to integrate your workspace with an already existing login page. For details about integrating with custom IDPs, see Connecting custom identity providers to ACP.

  2. Configure the connection to IDP by entering requested details and select NEXT to proceed.


Your first workspace is ready. Now you can Create the developer portal for your workspace and connect your developer pool.
