Issue/Introduction

We would like to implement a similar feature on a set of custom login pages that would allow a user remember their last login choice from the options that are available.  The intention is to provide a smoother option for step-up authentication than is available today.

1) First Time login
a) User access the site and is redirected to the login page.
b) User enters their ID and selects "Remember Me"
c) User is presented optional authentication methods with a "Remember This Choice" option.
d) User selects "Remember this Choice" and picks an authentication method like "Windows Hello".
e) Authentication proceeds, and the user is forwarded back to the main site.

 

2) Second Access
a) User access the site and is redirected to the login page.
b) User is immediately forwarded to the authentication page showing the user's ID with a "Not Me" link and a "More Choices" link to change the authentication method.
c) Without Authentication proceeds, and the user is forwarded back to the main site unless the cancel and use either the "Not Me" or the "More Choices" links.

Resolution

This is something that the customers will have to implement on their custom login and there is no additional work needed on the Broadcom side. The auth success response provides the information about what choice was selected, which can be saved on the client in a cookie (which is how the Default sign in UI does it) and then used on subsequent flows to choose the default choice.
