Pros: The best ever server which I used in my organization for identity solutions. It provides multiple identity solutions such as OAuth, OpenID, SSO, Provisioning, JIT, Multi-Factor Authentication, Fine-grained access control, SOAP and many more. The most likely feature is that you don't need to do any implementations as it has whatever you need for identity or authentication systems. You can integrate your authentication system with WSO2 identity server by doing some configurations in the GUI itself. For example, if you want OAuth to be implemented for your organization, just provide your callback URL, application name and that's it! It is that simple. It makes developers' life easier.

Cons: The major problem I am always having with WSO2 identity software is that they release latest versions of identity server and the java version differs for almost all the versions and hence it hard to find which version is it requiring. Therefore it is a bit hard to make the identity server runs for the first time. Further, to enable some specific feature, we should edit the configuration files in the installation folder of identity server.

Overall: The WSO2 Identity Server is the ultimate solution for Identity and Authentication solutions for any kind of systems. But we need to know the conceptual knowledge in order to use it properly.

Pros: It allows to implement SSO using Industry standards like SAML, OpenID connect among others; Also it is perfect to protect your web assets using OAUTH2 and role/attributes based access control; It has capalities to federate authentication using virtually any identity providers out there like facebook, google, linkedin, salesforce and more; furthermore you can use your existing user stores to authenticate your users be LDAP, Active Directory or any JDBC compliant database; not to forget so many extension points it has, so if you can do Java code you can do almost everything with the product.

Cons: Documentation is still evolving, then sometimes is a little bit tricky to implement some sort of solutions.

Overall: I could implement SSO, OAUTH protected REST APIs, RBAC, ABAC, Federated SSO, User Store consolidation, among others

Pros: Open source provides the usual benefits, the systems scales well and supports our SSO needs for 10,000 plus users

Cons: There is a danger that you can over-customize the toolset and a note that upgrades have to be applied in succession you cannot jump to the latest version.

Pros: It provides a good package of utilities and functionality. It also gives flexibility with the support formats.

Cons: Setup can be cumbersome. The Documentation assumes that the reader had a working knowledge of protocols and understanding of how authentication works for each protocol. There are not too many tools that assist in narrowing down issue when troubleshooting.

Overall: Centralized Single sign on for a wide range of supported applications.

WSO2 IS: a promissor product to identities

Comments: WSO2 IS is a good product, many features in only one product and ease to install (even in a cluster). If you undestand carbon, then you'll undestand other products too.

Support to many user stores, many protocols (such as SAML, LDAP, etc.) is great and works fine and manage resources very ease.

However, as other WSO2 products, documentation is poor, probably due comercial characterists. If you don't have techinical skills about midlewares, is not curious (you'll need read code a lot, code in github and XML files), then you'll have problems.

Good, the documentation to improve

Comments: Product is good, there is a scope for better documentation as it is difficult for someone who start using the product first time. Documentation can be divided into two sections.

a) Product concepts, architecture and flow etc.

b) Tutorial, sample etc..

Comments: I am using the WSO2 on my projects and i'm loving it. The integrated API Manager to Swagger is just amazing. The ESB server is very simple to set up. Really a great product to solve complex integration systems.
