Identity Provider option missing

Using Version 8.0.6
I’m trying to setup my user authentication in my Perspective project but the “Identity Provider” drop-down is completely missing in my Project settings. I’ve gone through every Security setting on the gateway and compared it with a project that does work, but can’t find anything that is different.

In designer, under Project Properties / Perspective / General.
The settings look like:

Launch Icon
Project Timezone
Session Timeout

whereas the working project I’m comparing to has:

Launch Icon
Project Timezone
Identity Provider
Session Timeout

Any thoughts on what setting could make this option is completely disappear?


Hi all,

I have the exact same issue, also on Ignition v8.0.6.
The “Identity Provider” was initially in my project properties settings but have now disappeared after I was playing around with some Gateway settings.

How do I get it back without doing a full gateway restore?

Identity providers are now configured at the root ‘Properties / General’ level, rather than being Perspective-specific.
There’s a couple reasons for this - besides being more correct, since we’re planning to eventually migrate Vision to IdPs, it also allowed us to fix some compatibility bugs when restoring projects across different gateways.

It would be helpful if the Inductive University video was updated. This cost me more than a couple of minutes because the video is very explicit about how to manage this option and I could not reconcile the difference.

Thank you for the information.
