Admins will use the Identity Platform release 22.12 New Experience to configure and manage more aspects of the environment than in earlier releases of the Identity Platform product.

The following table maps terms, concepts, and features that you know from using the Identity Platform release 22.02 and earlier to new terms, concepts, and features in the Identity Platform release 22.12.

22.02 or earlier

22.12 and later


Classic Experience

Advanced Settings

On the Identity Platform UI, in most places, we've renamed the Classic Experience to Advanced Settings.


Arculix by SecureAuth

You can set up the Identity Platform as an IdP factor to enable intelligent MFA with Arculix by SecureAuth and the Arculix Mobile app. With the powerful combination of the Identity Platform and Arculix, this extends your capabilities with a passwordless continuous authentication solution.

To set up an integration, see SecureAuth IdP and Arculix integration.


Arculix theme

We've added a new Arculix theme in the Identity Platform for the end user login pages.


Bulk upload hardware tokens

Added support for bulk uploads of hardware OATH tokens (TOTP and HOTP tokens).

For more information about this, see Bulk upload hardware OATH tokens using CSV file.

FIDO2 WebAuthn

Device registration improvements

We've added support for administrators to define FIDO2 device restrictions for their end users in the global settings.

For more information about the Advanced Settings configuration, see FIDO2 WebAuthn global MFA settings.
