In this chapter, you were presented with the main aspects of user management in Keycloak. You learned that users can be created directly in Keycloak or by integrating with different third-party identity providers and external identity stores. You also learned that Keycloak enables these integrations by leveraging open standard protocols such as OpenID Connect, SAML, and LDAP. You also learned that users are provided with capabilities to sign up for a realm, either by enabling self-registration to a realm or by integrating with a third-party provider. Finally, you learned that users can also manage their accounts through the Keycloak Account Console.
In the next chapter, we are going to look at how users can authenticate using different credentials, as well as how Keycloak is the perfect fit for strong authentication.
