Tide launched the feature which enables the existing user to login to the marketplace by using the credential already used by old tide service.


About Tide

Tide is one of the fastest growing fintech which is revolutionising how small businesses manage their money admin. Tide is creating the product from the scratch that takes the stress and paperwork out of the business admin.

The Challenge

Existing system supports login for the one existing service that has all the users created within. Other services of tide such as marketplace and other 3rd party services do not have these users and because of this these users have to create their credential in respective service, the main goal is to have a single user base which can be used across multiple services. Below are the some challenges:-

Technical Solution:

Knoldus worked closely with the tide and helped in creating features that can replace all the challenges. Some of the important functionality that were developed are listed below:


Tide is a payment solution provider and this solution was particularly built for Marketplace which have different claims and token needed for different features e.g. Tide existing user (under one client) can check their information by using the existing scopes and claims and the same is used for accessing APIs related to the timeline.Tide want to enable SSO between sites that make up Tide, so that users can have a seamless experience of moving between sites. In order for the marketplace's authentication service to use Tide's auth server as it's identity provider, the marketplace auth service must be a client of Tide's auth service. Client should support the authorisation code flow, provide openid scope and have a token endpoint secured by basic auth. And the client should sign it's tokens with a new certificate.
