Today, the Mozilla IAM Project announces the availability of the a new login experience.
The new login experience is currently being piloted for authentication to Moderator and we expect to roll it out across Mozilla applications and services in Q1/2018.
What’s New (aka the WHY)
As part of Mozilla’s Open Innovation strategy we are investing in service design, a user-focused approach to better contributor experiences. For the new login experience we applied these practices to improve the process for staff and volunteers. Here are the main characteristics:
- login is faster - less wait time and spinning than on the old Lock. The new login experience also automatically logs you back in if it recognizes you.
- Simplified sign-in flows for users authenticating through Mozilla LDAP and passwordless email.
- Compatibility with Auth0’s (our access provider) latest libraries.
This new experience is only the start. Items on the top of our backlog include:
- Improve towards a Smart Lock, which will select the appropriate authentication provider based on your (Mozillians.org’s) profile’s verified identities.
- Allow for sign-up to Mozilla IAM by creating a Mozillians.org profile from the login.
We Need Your Help
Please take the new login experience for a spin by visiting https://moderator.mozilla.org/oidc/authenticate/ and let us know if you find any bugs by filing an issue in our Lock repo. We also look forward to your comments in this thread or the Discourse IAM category.
