Discourse SSO using auth0 via URL


(Presley Dias) #1

I am using trying to perform SSO using Auth0 for wordPress and discourse from my own application.
the flow is mentioned below.

The user enters user name and password in the application, the details are sent to the server which authenticates the user with the auth0 API and send back the token.

I have installed auth0 SSO plugin from GitHub in Discourse and all the client ID, client secrets are added to the plugin.

I want to know who to perform SSO in case of Discourse when I have logged into my application.

For wordPress were are using the following method.

    <form *ngIf="userService.isAuthenticated()" ngNoForm action="http://xx.xx.xx.xx/index.php?auth0=implicit&client_id=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx&connection=xxxxxxxxxx"
        method="post">
        <input class="hidden" type="text" id="token" name="token" value="{{tokenValueIsHereReturnedbyAuth0Authentication}}" />
        <input class="hidden" type="text" id="redirect_to" name="redirect_to" value="http://xx.xx.xx.xx/index.html" />
        <input class="btn btn-primary pull-right" type="submit" value="View" />
    </form>

So How to do similar thing in discourse?
