Get Free Trial

Set up Single Sign-On (SSO) on ClassLink with the WordPress OAuth & OpenID Connect Single Sign-On plugin for education and protect your complete WordPress site behind SSO. Implementing ClassLink SSO allows students, teachers, parents, and school district admins to log into your websites and applications with a single set of credentials using the enterprise-level ClassLink OAuth provider.

ClassLink acts as the OAuth Provider (Identity Provider) and WordPress acts as the OAuth Client (Service Provider). WordPress ClassLink Authentication provides smooth login between these two, removing the need to remember usernames and passwords.

The ClassLink OAuth WordPress plugin also provides advanced SSO features like user profile mapping and role mapping to grant varying levels of access to faculty in an institute/school. Students will also get access to specific school courses on the website based on their sections or school levels. ClassLink WordPress OAuth SSO plugin secure’s the user’s login process and improves user authentication authority. Follow the steps in the guide below to install this plugin.


We provide WordPress Single Sign-On (SSO) with multiple education providers, such as:

Clever

Canvas

Google Classroom

Office 365

Learndash


If you are using Learndash as your WordPress LMS and want to assign different Learndash courses to your (Canvas, Clever, Google Classroom) users based on their schools or different sections (such as k1, k2). You can use our WordPress Learndash Integration Add-on, with the add-on instead of individually adding each person to a specific Learndash course, we may assign them directly to that course during SSO based on user groups and roles so that they can access that course straight from the WordPress site.
