Customize Your Client

Customize your experience with our flexible settings options

Next Identity provides a range of settings that allow you to customize and manage your client according to your specific needs. These customizations are divided into two main categories: settings requiring assistance from a Next Identity consultant and self-configurable settings, which users can configure by themselves.

How to Customize Your Client

If you're unsure whether the setting you want to configure is self-configurable or requires assistance from a Next Identity Consultant, refer to the self-service client configurations list. Otherwise, here are the general steps you should follow:

  • Navigate to the Client Details page.

  • Select the environment you want to configure from the top left corner.

General Sub-Tab

Allow redirect URI list section

This is a list of complete URLs approved for secure navigation and authorization redirects.

URI 1 to n         Approved URL 1 to n for secure navigation and authorization redirects. Example: If you want to add three URIs, you would have URI 1, URI 2, and URI 3.🟢 Self-configurable

Registration Sub-Tab

Configurations section

Registration typeDetermines the user registration method: Self-registration or Invite-only. Self-registration lets users sign up independently, while invite-only requires an invitation to create an account.Not self-configurable
└ App linkThis setting can only enabled, and it is only visible if the registration type is Invite-only. It specifies the redirect destination link after the invite-only workflow.🟢 Self-configurable
Account verification methodDetermines the method through which users verify their account post-registration, offering tailored options based on your application's setup:

Link: This option sends a direct link for account verification via email. It is applicable when the Magic Link is enabled for email authentication or during Hosted Journey configurations when the authentication method is email or SMS (only if the Registration Type is Invitation). This streamlined approach allows users to activate their accounts effortlessly through a click.

Verification Code: This method sends a verification code, rather than a direct link, and is used when the Magic Link is disabled or for Hosted Journey configurations that use SMS without requiring an invitation for registration. Users will receive a code via SMS, which they must enter to verify their account, adding an extra layer of security to the verification process.
Not self-configurable
└ Base URLThis is the foundational URL needed for constructing the account verification link sent to users. It plays a crucial role in guiding users to the correct page for completing their account verification. Visibility and editability of this setting depend on the authentication method; it is necessary to configure when the authentication method involves email or SMS (with an invitation registration type), and it is mandatory to be filled in when Magic Link is active.🟢 Self-configurable

Authentication Sub-Tab

Password reset section

Password reset methodDefines how users can reset their passwords, with options varying based on the authentication method and Magic Link settings:

Link: Users receive an email or SMS with a link to reset their password. This method is activated when Magic Link is enabled or when the authentication method is email. It offers a user-friendly way to securely reset passwords without entering complex codes.

Verification Code: Users receive a verification code via SMS to proceed with the password reset. This method is used when the authentication method is mobile, and Magic Link is off, providing an additional security measure by verifying the user's access to the mobile number associated with their account.
Not self-configurable
└ Base URLThe base URL for the password reset process. This setting is crucial for creating the link or directing users to the appropriate page for password reset. It must be configured correctly to ensure a seamless and secure password reset experience. This URL is editable when the authentication method is email or when Magic Link is active, ensuring flexibility and security in managing password resets.🟢 Self-configurable

Profile Sub-Tab

Configurations section

Change email confirmation methodSpecifies the method by which users can change their registered email, with options depending on Magic Link settings and the chosen authentication method:

Link: Sends a direct link to the user's current email or mobile number to confirm the email change. This method is applicable when Magic Link is enabled, providing a straightforward way for users to update their email addresses.

Verification Code: Sends a verification code to the user's current email for manual entry during the email change process. This method is used when Magic Link is disabled or in Hosted Journeys, adding an extra layer of verification to ensure the security of the email change process.
Not self-configurable
└ Base URLThe base URL required for the email change confirmation process. This URL is critical in directing users to the correct page to confirm their new email address. It is available and editable only when Magic Link is active, ensuring users are seamlessly guided through the email change process with minimal hassle.Not self-configurable
