User Interface

The impact of the WAYF Cloud to the end-user experience

There is no hard dependency between the WAYF Cloud and any specific User Interface design.

The discovery of a user's organizational membership via the WAYF Cloud enables service providers to design a User Interface that promotes the Sign In with this organization compared to other Sign In options.

Following is an example design where the user's organizational membership discovered via the WAYF Cloud is presented in a prominent position relative to other Sign In options.


This design can be used to provide multiple suggestions for users which are members of multiple institutions.


WAYF Cloud data, can be mixed with other user data available locally at the service provider platform, such as the local history of a user in order to create an interface that nicely combines organizational Sign In, with the Sign In of users which are individually registered at the service provider.
