The Identity Authentication Service (IAS) is a prerquisite to the Embedded Edition of People Analytics. Please note The IAS related upgrades are currently not made available to instances using Global Assignment /Concurrent Employment features. It is by-design, due to GA/CE users having multiple user accounts maintained in SuccessFactors for the same identity, which IAS does not allow.
