Has anyone tried an SSO with Salesforce yet? How did it go?

(Justin Smits) #2

Have you had any updates on this?

(Scott Trager) #3

Nope - looks like it hasn’t been done yet, although we are looking to give it a “go” in the near future if everything turns out the way I hope…

(Justin Smits) #4

any luck with this one?

(Scott Trager) #5

We hired the Discourse team to help us here, but the SSO actually works really well so far.

I love to know, how Discourse can work with any OAuth2 Server, (is SF also Oauth2)

I think the SSO work well, even in my case, still have several issue that i am working to troubleshoot it.

I haven’t had luck.

I pulled down and configured the [Discourse Salesforce Auth] (GitHub - discourse/discourse-salesforce-auth) plugin to a test instance of mine. Clicking the “Sign in with Salesforce” button on the login dialog gives me a 500.

Error logs say:

The plugin was made by @sam so he’d be the best one to help you here. Did you configure everything on the salesforce side?

(Roarke Lynch) #9

I don’t think the plugin is even getting to the point that it can contact SF. I saw the new general OAuth support plugin and was going to give that a try also.

(Mark Robustelli) #10

Has anyone tinkered with this recently? It is something we are looking at. May even be willing to pay someone to set it up. @sam ? If anyone is interested, please just let me know.

Our SSO plugin for salesforce works fine and is in production at

The plugin requires url, client id and secret via site settings

Trouble with salesforce is that it is a royal nightmare multiplied by nightmare to get it all working, it took us weeks of back and forth with salesforce experts to get it all configured right for western digital.
