    I am attempting to use the nodebb-plugin-sso-oauth plugin to implement SSO with CAS into my forum.

    My CAS is using Oauth2. I have POST methods with urls for request code (authorization), request access token, and request profile.

    I have installed the plugin and set up nconf to use my constants.

    I activated the plugin and refreshed my nodebb forum.

    It is now crashing upon starting and I get the following error.

    24/7 00:37:39 [29650] - error: message=Cannot read property 'length' of undefined, stack=TypeError: Cannot read property 'length' of undefined

    at runCallback (timers.js:810:20)
    at tryOnImmediate (timers.js:768:5)

    My guess is that for some reason, path is being passed as undefined.

    I am stuck and in need of help.

    Please provide feedback or recommendations for how I can implement CAS Single Sign On into my nodebb forum.

    Thank you,

    I am new to NodeBB and nodebb-plugin-sso-oauth authenticates users from oauth2-server-php with an Active Directory (Samba 4) backend. "So far so good" - this plug in obviously works in that configuration, but I was not able to include more than id, displayName and email from OAuth into user NodeBB account. My OAuth solution offers a big JSON object with many data which are usable for NodeBB.

    My library.js was patched to

    OAuth.parseUserReturn = function(data, callback) { // Alter this section to include whatever data is necessary // NodeBB *requires* the following: id, displayName, emails. // Everything else is optional. // Find out what is available by uncommenting this line: console.log(data); var profile = {}; =; profile.displayName = data.display_name; profile.fullname = data.user_nicename; profile.emails = data.emails; console.log(profile); // Do you want to automatically make somebody an admin? This line might help you do that... // profile.isAdmin = data.isAdmin ? true : false; // Delete or comment out the next TWO (2) lines when you are ready to proceed //process.stdout.write('===\nAt this point, you\'ll need to customise the above section to id, displayName, and emails into the "profile" object.\n==='); //return callback(new Error('Congrats! So far so good -- please see server log for details')); callback(null, profile); }

    this console log show all data as expected, so oauth module got everything, but profile.fullname is ignored by NodBB. It seems it is not enough to patch that section to get more than minimum required data for a NodeBB user.

    Any hints?
