Hey guys, I wanted some help to create a strategy for Single Sign On as per the requirement. Currently we have 6 web apps hosted using the following CMS: 1. Wordpress 2. Nextcloud 3. Peertube 4. Matrix Synapse 5. Mastodon 6. Mailcow I was thinking of going with the Gluu OXD server as OAuth has been implemented individually. So out of all these, I found out that Gluu has plugins for WordPress and NextCloud. What can we do about rest of the CMSs? And considering another option, we can move all the user data from the respective databases to Gluu LDAP and we can have Gluu as the centralized system for authentication and authorization. But we'll have to take care of the future registration workflows but that can be done. Can you suggest an approach to implement SSO between all the CMSs using Gluu server? Thanks.

The key is to make sure that the web applications you choose support open standards for federated authentication, specifically OpenID Connect or SAML. As long as they do, you'll get SSO across these applications. At least you won't have to re-authenticate (the end user may have to hit a "login" button). I'm closing this issue because it's not a question about functionality--it's a question about architecture.

Okay Thanks. Some of them support SAML and some support OpenID Connect. Is it still possible to implement Single Sign on between all these apps using Gluu?
