Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The RTCPeerConnection.setIdentityProvider() method sets the Identity Provider (IdP) to the triplet given in parameter: its name, the protocol used to communicate with it (optional) and an optional username. The IdP will be used only when an assertion is needed.

If the signalingState is set to "closed", an InvalidStateError is raised.


pc.setIdentityProvider(domainname [, protocol] [, username]);

There is no return value for this method.


Is a DOMString is the domain name where the IdP is.
