Creating an identity store

  1. Navigate to Identities > Identity stores.
  2. Click on ‘+Create identity store’.
  3. The 'Create identity store' page will open.
    You can configure the initial settings of the identity store, such as adding the name, identifier support, and password policy.


Attribute settings are not available at this phase yet.

Identity store name This setting is mandatory. You can add the name of the identity store here. Each identity store has to have a unique name in the Admin Console.

Description You can add a description that will appear in the identity store listing.

Identifiers This setting is mandatory. You can select the supported identifier(s) of the identity store.


Supported identifiers selected at identity store creation are set to mandatory by default, but you have the option to modify and fine-tune them later on. You will be able to access further settings in the Attributes tab for each type of identifier once the identity store is created.

Depending on your choices here this may affect some other options in the platform. See Identifier Configuration Effectsfor more information.

Password quality policy This setting is mandatory. You can select the password quality policy that will determine the password characteristics across the identity store.

Account event TTL The setting shows the retention period for account event data. By default, it is set to the last 30 days and can’t be changed from the UI.


You can contact Strivacity’s customer success team to request a longer retention period.

Enable self-service organization registration You can allow self-service organization creation across the identity store. If enabled, any admin with adequate access rights can create organizations via the organization management portal.

Connect to Strivacity Bridge for on-premises directories It is possible to delegate authentication and synchronize attributes from a remote on-premise store. Enabling this option generates a key and secret for the Bridge for on-premises directories, an on-premise component used to talk to local resources and communicate with Strivacity.

If the Bridge is enabled, Synchronization options determines whether credentials are cached in the cloud or not; if not cached, a round-trip through the connector bridge is required for any authentication.

Lifecycle event hooks You can add an ‘After password change’ event hook directly to the identity store to keep customer password information up-to-date in external identity stores.


You can create and deploy event hooks in Lifecycle event hooks.

  1. Once you’ve completed the initial settings, you can save your changes to create the identity store.


The Account attributes tab becomes active after saving the identity store. You can open identifiers and attributes to manage their required status and visibility, and you can also add new attributes.
