1. Authentication Management for AI Workflows with ZITADEL


    When setting up authentication management for AI workflows with ZITADEL, you'll first create the necessary resources like projects, actions, domains, organizations, and policies to manage users, their roles, permissions, and the way they log into the application.

    I'll guide you through a Pulumi program to set up a ZITADEL project with basic settings. To manage the authentication and identity in your workflows, you may need to create:

    1. An organization (zitadel.Org): A container for all your ZITADEL resources.
    2. A project (zitadel.Project): Represents your AI workflow application in ZITADEL. It groups the actions and roles.
    3. An action (zitadel.Action): Defines a script or a set of instructions that can be executed upon certain events in your application.
    4. Domain (zitadel.Domain): Represents a custom domain linked to your organization for user authentication.
    5. Login Policy (zitadel.LoginPolicy): Defines how users will be able to log in (e.g., multi-factor authentication, passwordless, etc.).
    6. Optionally, Integration with identity providers (IdPs) if you want to allow users to log in using external providers such as GitHub.

    Here's a basic Pulumi program in Python that sets up a ZITADEL organization, project, and a login policy that mandates multi-factor authentication.

    import pulumi import pulumi_zitadel as zitadel # Create a ZITADEL organization org = zitadel.Org("ai-workflow-org", name="ai-organization") # Create a ZITADEL project within the organization project = zitadel.Project("ai-workflow-project", name="AIWorkflowProject", orgId=org.id) # Define an action that could, for example, log when a user logs in action = zitadel.Action("user-login-action", name="UserLoginAction", orgId=org.id, script='console.log("User logged in");', timeout="5s", allowedToFail=False) # Set up a domain for user authentication (Replace with your actual domain) domain = zitadel.Domain("ai-workflow-domain", name="aiworkflow.mydomain.com", orgId=org.id, isPrimary=True) # Define a login policy for the organization login_policy = zitadel.LoginPolicy("ai-workflow-login-policy", orgId=org.id, forceMfa=True, allowRegister=False, allowExternalIdp=True, passwordlessType="not_allowed", forceMfaLocalOnly=True) # Export the project ID and the domain name for reference pulumi.export("project_id", project.id) pulumi.export("auth_domain", domain.name)

    In the above program:

    • zitadel.Org creates a new organization to encapsulate all ZITADEL related resources.
    • zitadel.Project sets up a new project that will house the resources specific to your AI workflow.
    • zitadel.Action defines an action that represents a log event when a user logs in; you will adjust the script based on your actions.
    • zitadel.Domain registers your custom domain for use with ZITADEL; this is where users will authenticate.
    • zitadel.LoginPolicy sets the rules for user authentication, enabling multi-factor authentication while disallowing passwordless entries.

    To use this program:

    1. Replace "aiworkflow.mydomain.com" with your actual domain.
    2. Adjust the script parameter in zitadel.Action to match the actions you want to perform upon certain triggers.

    Remember to install the necessary Pulumi ZITADEL package by running pip install pulumi_zitadel before you run the program. You can find more details about each resource and its properties in the ZITADEL provider documentation.

    After setting up your resources with Pulumi, you can integrate them into your AI workflows, using the project roles and permissions to manage access to different parts of the workflow. The login policy ensures that your users' authentication process is secure and conforms to your organization's requirements.
