Developing Applications Using ForgeRock® SDKs

This course is for students who want to learn how to use the ForgeRock® SDKs to speed up the integration of JavaScript, Android, and iOS applications, within an access management solution. The course presents key use cases and features of the ForgeRock SDKs.

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Introduce the ForgeRock SDKs, describe how they fit into the ForgeRock® Identity Platform (Identity Platform), and how they interact with ForgeRock® Access Management (AM)
  • Present the centralized login flow, implement centralized login authentication, and observe device single sign-on (SSO)
  • Present the Embedded Login flow and execute authentication, registration, and self-service journey
  • Increase the security of your application and enhance the user experience with social authentication, passwordless biometric authentication, device profile and location collection and analysis, and multi-factor authentication (MFA) with one-time passwords (OTPs) and push authentication


The target audiences for this course include:

  • System Integrators
  • System Consultants
  • System Architects
  • Developers of JavaScript applications
  • Developers of native Android applications
  • Developers of native iOS applications


The following are the prerequisites for successfully completing this course:

  • Basic knowledge and skills using the Linux and Windows operating systems to complete labs
  • Basic knowledge of HTTP and communications between clients and servers is critical to understanding the interaction between the ForgeRock SDKs and AM
  • Basic knowledge of JSON, JavaScript, REST, and Java
