JSConnect SSO



  • Hello All!
    Is anyone aware if JSConnect (Previously used with Vanilla Forums) will work with NodeBB? Our primary site is coded in CodeIgniter and we are looking for some sort of SSO solution.

    Thanks for the help!



  • I am facing the same problem. JSConnect is coded into and for Vanilla Forums, there are no chances it will work in NodeBB.
    I will create an oauth server in my primary site and then install and customize this sso-oauth plugin https://github.com/julianlam/nodebb-plugin-sso-oauth

    šŸ‘ Let me know if the plugin is confusing to use!



  • DONE! šŸ˜Ž

    I had no problems editing the plugin, it's not confusing (for me [i'm a developer])

    All is working correctly. May I'll post details later.



  • @julian I noticed that if I change plugin

    "version": "0.2.4"
    

    to

    "version": "0.1"
    

    NodeBB crashes:

    error: TypeError: Invalid Version: 0.1

    @manuel It's because NPM specifications require the version to be "parseable by node-semver" šŸ˜‰



  • @frissdiegurke understood, thank you



  • any suggestion on how to customize the look using an image instead of the fontawesome icon and adding a text description?

    		strategies.push({
    			name: constants.name,
    			url: '/auth/' + constants.name,
    			callbackURL: '/auth/' + constants.name + '/callback',
    			icon: 'fa-check-square',
    			scope: (constants.scope || '').split(',')
    		});

    .alt-logins .facebook matches the facebook SSO login, so I believe you could use some custom js and css to change the HTML after-the-fact, although I will admit this is not an ideal solution.



  • @julian and when you say

    NodeBB *requires* the following: id, displayName, emails.
    // Everything else is optional.
    

    what is that "everything else"? I need to set the fullname, the username, and the url for profile picture
    it's just that? http://passportjs.org/guide/profile/

    a little bit confusing is the variable "displayName" that will not be used for fullname but for username

    how can I sanitize the username the way it will be accepted? I have to solve some [[error:invalid-username]]



  • I had to replace InternalOAuthError with Error because the first "is not defined"



  • @julian said:

    .alt-logins .facebook matches the facebook SSO login, so I believe you could use some custom js and css to change the HTML after-the-fact, although I will admit this is not an ideal solution.

    in this case how can i execute custom js on login page only?



  • i also added this code to load default preferences (inside the "success" function when creating a new user)

    User.setSetting(uid, 'dailyDigestFreq', 'week', null);
    User.setSetting(uid, 'notificationSounds', 1, null);
    User.setSetting(uid, 'followTopicsOnCreate', 1, null);
    User.setSetting(uid, 'followTopicsOnReply', 1, null);
    User.setSetting(uid, 'sendChatNotifications', 1, null);
