Google Oauth Login

Recommended Posts

I believe we talked about this early on in development, and architected the login system to be able to support this later without too much trouble.

 

Would Blesta be able to support this for the client side two and only uses the information it has on the registration form?

 

So if I clicked on Facebook, It would import my full name, date of birth, email address, etc :).

It's certainly possible, but we have not implemented anything yet.

Although I would consider it "nice to have" if the user could authenticate with Facebook or LinkedIn, for clients and staff we need an email in the account, so email providers would serve not only as authenticators but also to gather an active and trusted email address and link the account to that, so I would focus on Google, Gmail with > 600 M users and Google Apps with > 5 M companies.

If you are planning to add it for any OAuth service provider, I would suggest then to have settings to allow or disallow each one from a list of providers supported.

I would personally leave it only for Google and Hotmail, in that case, maybe Yahoo! when it gets to OAuth 2.0.

In all likelihood it would be completely provider agnostic. You'd simply enter the authentication URL for each of the providers you wish to support, or perhaps check boxes from a set of supported (e.g. tested) ones.

Old thread, but any news on this? It's a real good solution to gather information from clients, without a hassle for them to fill in again all those info.

 

Thanks for pinging the feature. Nothing new on this, it is certainly possible to do but not many requests in the past year.
