@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 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.
They turned up after this photo was taken 😀👍
Something about this suggests that the system is broken
Average at best.
Not the artist. Web developer. If something is broken, it's probably my fault.
