Blackbit releases new bundle: Single Sign-on for Pimcore
Since June 2020, Blackbit digital Commerce GmbH has maintained an LDAP integration for Pimcore. Now, with the support of OpenID, Blackbit is expanding the possibilities to connect Pimcore to a central user administration.
Companies can centrally manage their users and access permissions, instead of individually in each application, with the help of external authentication providers. This is particularly interesting for large companies and firms whose employees use a large number of web applications. Thanks to Blackbit's Single Sign-on Bundle, Pimcore now fits seamlessly into the corporate IT landscape.
Currently, the bundle supports OpenID and LDAP authentication providers. Support for SAML and OAuth2 will follow soon. OpenID is supported by a wide range of applications such as
- Microsoft Azure Active Directory
- and others
Using the menu item "Single Sign-on Configuration", the necessary settings can be made directly in the Pimcore backend and any number of authentication providers can be added. The fields used by the authentication provider can be mapped to the Pimcore user fields (e.g. username, email, groups). The specification of default roles to be applied to newly created users is also supported.
For each authentication provider (except LDAP providers), a new button is added to Pimcore's login screen:
An authentication provider can also be configured as the default. When this is done and an unlogged-in user accesses https://your-pimcore.com/admin, he is automatically redirected to the authentication provider to log in. He will then be sent back to the Pimcore backend where he is logged in.
