Security Center

You can configure an Authentication Service using the OpenID protocol from the Roles view of System task in Security Center Config Tool.

In the Properties tab, you can configure an OpenID identity provider for third-party authentication.

Sets the authentication protocol to use with this identity provider. Changing the protocol migrates the Authentication Service configuration between OpenID and SAML2.
Depending on the original configuration, migrating an Authentication Service role to another protocol might leave errors in the new configuration. After migrating, ensure that the new configuration is complete and accurate before using it.
