Hello and congratulations for this awesome project, We came to realise that Gluu might be the one answer to our many questions, We would like to be able to use Gluu as our Authentication provider for our multi-cloud multi app deployment. One of the apps we need to authenticate, using any protocol, ldap, openid, etc is Mattermost Team Editions. Even that the documentation for previous versions are stating: mattermost next, we cannot fing any good reference on how to configure. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, Just check if your application has support for one of these specifications SAML2, OAuth2, OpenID Connect. What about this link

Hi, thanks for the answer. The Teams edition, has support only for gitlab oatuth. The persons here make it work with keycloak - just translate the page using google works fine for me. What you sent, that looks like a commercial offer that would configure the instances for us. We are looking to do that ourselves. Cheers, Mihai

We're not going to help bypass Mattermost's business model. Use Rocket.Chat--they offer OAuth authentication in the Community Edition.

Thanks for the answer, is a misunderstanding, we don't want to bypass the business model, we want to use mattermost without gitlab since we use There is a plan to use self managed gitlab instance. the idea is we want gluu at the center of the authentication service for a global deployment project, cannot use rocket, since mattermost is not only chat for us. the main idea is we use all major cloud providers, and we want gluu to help authenticating and delegating to the cloud providers, rather than using the native authentication providers. in the same context we need to authenticate with our infrastructure tools and apps EG: ansible tower, mattermost, gitlab, ftrack, rdp, teradici, user desktops, etc how do you suggest we proceed further cheers, Mihai
