Getting to production

Around 135 online services have integrated with the RealMe® login service and 35 with the RealMe assertion service - we publish the current numbers(external link) on the main RealMe website. The RealMe integration team are therefore very familiar with what's required to get to production. Overall, it's your agency's project plan that sets the pace and milestones.

As a first step we recommend testing your SAML component in our Message Testing Service, to ensure that it works as expected. 

All integrations involve at least one pre-production environment connection with the RealMe Integrated Testing Environment (ITE). For large, strategic projects it's possible to connect multiple environments to ITE such as system development, performance testing and user acceptance testing.

Whether it's one integration or many, this will involve the same steps that are illustrated in the RealMe integration timeline.

The go-live checklist describes the activities that need to be undertaken during the RealMe integration process. Typically these activities are completed simply by stepping through the environments and working with the RealMe integration team.
