Binding a Mobile Client

To use mobile services, you must represent your mobile app in OpenShift using a Mobile Client, and that Mobile Client must be associated with the mobile service. This association is called binding and it is necessary for your mobile app to use that service.

To associate a Mobile Client with a mobile service:


  1. Navigate to the Overview of your OpenShift project.

  2. Select the Mobile Client name listed in the Mobile Clients section.

  3. Navigate to Mobile Services tab.

  5. Fill out the binding parameters required by the Identity Management Service.

The Identity Management service will now be expandable, details about the service can be viewed.
