I've found this guide
to follow for @matrix SAML2 auth, so as soon as I can find a keycloak discourse auth I'm (mainly) good to go!
@Gina I've set this up now. Not done any auth with it yet though. See how I go. Thanks for the recommendation! 👍
@matrix that's ace. How do you place the jitsi widget in the left column like that?
People are realizing that their new "work from home" venture capitalist tools are not privacy friendly.
In my remote work guide, I've included ethical alternatives to Slack, Zoom etc. These are Matrix, Riot, Jitsi, Taiga, Basecamp.
I've used Jitsi Meet and Matrix/Riot extensively for video calls over the last few weeks and they are great alternatives 👇

@matrix We're going to try and implement matrix, jitsi and discourse at a Hack Space I attend so will have more time to read up and work out what I'm doing wrong. I'm no expert. This week though time was against us.
May look more into Auth0 as that's what Mozilla use isn't it? I couldn't find any documentation as to how they managed to connect it to matrix though.
I'm definitely no expert with auth so need step by step guides 😀
@matrix hi at first we tried to use discourse as the sso provider following this guide:
Then looked into auth0 and briefly at keycloak. It was always the case that if one thing worked with one service, we couldn't find documentation or figure out how to get it to work with the other services.
@matrix I don't understand how shared Auth is not a priority. It's so frustrating to me. I had a chance to convert to open source communication for my company, but I couldn't wire it all together, so the easy choice for them was MS teams. Gutted.
@matrix It's been a shit week if I'm honest.
@matrix is there a guide to get shared Auth working with matrix? I've had a nightmare this week trying to get matrix, jitsi and discourse to have shared Auth. My company went with MS Teams in the end because we couldn't make it work. We couldn't even work out how to whitelist an email domain. I really wanted it to work but feeling really disheartened at the minute.
@Gina thanks, I'll check it out. I was looking at Auth0 but it just seems like there's no easy way to hook it all together and no real documentation.
Just tried to sign up for Auth0 to see if I could figure something out. Good start.
I know this is impossible, but ideally it would be 'log into back end, enter url, api key' and bang! Instant shared auth between the sites. 🙂
I really hope easy oneclick type solution for shared auth gets sorted out. I know discourse can act as a sso provider, but trying to make it work with matrix and jitsi was beyond me.
Today is a frustrating one. With the explosion in working from home, I had a chance to try and sell open source solutions as the answer. I went for discourse, matrix and jitsi. Unfortunately we had such a horrible experience trying to hook them all together with shared authentication that my company has binned the idea off and we're now using MS teams. They'll never consider an open source solution again. One bad experience ruins it forever.
Average at best.
