Nexus GO Discovery is a service based on the SAML Identity Provider Discovery specification. The service can be used in a SAML federation to let end users choose what Identity Provider (IdP) to use for login. A Service Provider (SP) that uses this service does not have to implement support for letting users choose authentication method. Nexus GO Discovery follows the specification for SAML IdP Discovery service from Oasis.

When you order Nexus GO Discovery, you get your own service web page that can be branded to fit your needs. Alternatively, you can connect to the service via an the Nexus GO Discovery API
