Manage Identity Providers#
Rackspace recommends that you use the Control Panel to mange Identity Providers, but advanced users might choose to use the Identity API instead.

|Disable||Disables a currently enabled Identity Provider. Users will NOT be able to log in through Rackspace Identity Federation, and any currently logged in users will be logged out at the next opportunity.|
|Remove||Removes an Identity Provider. Users will NOT be able to login using this Identity Provider, and any currently logged in users will be logged out at the next opportunity.|
