Building WSO2 products from source 2.0

Posted by Gustavo Encarnacao on 17 May, 2018

In this blog we'll provide some insight into the WSO2 source code structure and how to modify and build your own custom version of WSO2 products that meets your specific needs. Knowledge of Maven and Git is useful but not required as we'll try to give a thorough explanation of what commands to issue, why and what they do. If you are planning on building WSO2 products you will require 3 applications:

  1. a Git client to obtain the source code
  2. a Java8 JDK
  3. Maven to compile the source code.

WSO2 provides a full suite of integration products, known as the WSO2 stack. These include the Enterprise Integrator (which now combines the previous single products: Enterprise Service Bus, Data Services Server and the Business Process Server), the API Manager and the Identity Server which are the more commonly/broadly used.

Federated Authentication with BIT.LY authenticator in WSO2 Identity Server

Posted by Rob Blaauboer on 5 Oct, 2017

WSO2’s Identity and Access Management Solution, Identity Server, allows you to introduce Federated Authentication in your IT landscape.

With Federated Authentication we mean that we use a third party (a so called Identity Provider) to authenticate a user.

Rather than keeping a separate and own user registration, authentication is done by a third party for instance Facebook, Google or  another service.

We should clarify, btw, that is is not a question of either / or but rather question of choice. You can have a local authenticator and / or federated authenticator(s).

WSO2TORIAL Using OneTimePasswords to login in WSO2 IS 5.3.0

Posted by Rob Blaauboer on 16 Mar, 2017

Within WSO2 IS (Identity Server) you can have a onetime password generated. It is even possible to use this mechanism for users who do not want to remember passwords / want a new password for each login.

The trick is to setup the One Time Password feature and after each successful login a new password will be emailed to the user. Keep in mind this is a password in plaintext!

So how would we do this?

WSO2TORIAL: Self Sign-Up in WSO2 Identity Server

Posted by Rob Blaauboer on 9 Mar, 2017

The new WSO2 Identity Server 5.3.0 (or Identity & Access Management Solution as it is now known) allows you to (that is no surprise) manage Identity and Access management.

One of the functions it supports is self sign-up of users using the WSO2 IS Dashboard. In many cases you have an existing set of users but there might be situations where you would actually like users to self sign-up. In this WSO2 tutorial (WSO2TORIAL) we will show how you setup that functionality.
