Steps to configure Zendesk Single Sign-On ( SSO ) with Drupal OAuth/OpenID Client Providers:
1. Setup Drupal as OAuth Client
Login in your Drupal site’s admin console and click on Extend from the top navigation bar.
Select the Install new module option to install a new module on your Drupal site.
Upload the downloaded zip file of the Module and click on the Install button to continue.
Select Enable newly added modules.
Scroll down till you find miniOrange OAuth Client. Click on the checkbox next to it and click on the Install button to enable the module.
Click on Configuration from the top navigation bar and Select Drupal OAuth client Configuration.
In the Configure OAuth tab, select Custom OAuth Provider from the Select Application dropdown. Enter the name of OAuth provider as Zendesk.
Copy the callback URL from the Callback /Redirect URL text field and keep it handy.
Please note: A few of the popular service providers like Azure AD, Azure B2C, Facebook etc. support only HTTPS Callback URL (However, HTTP URL will work in the case of localhost). So, currently, if your site is HTTP, you can change it to HTTPS by following the steps listed down below :
Go to the Sign In Settings tab.
In the Base /Site URL text field, enter your Drupal site’s base/root URL with HTTPS ( For eg. if your site is http://abc.com, you will need to save this value: https://abc.com ).
In Zendesk support click on Admin and select the API in the Channels category.
Click the OAuth Clients tab in the Channels/API page, and then click the plus icon (+) on the right side of the client list.
Enter a name for your application under the Client Name field and add Callback/Redirect URL from miniOrange OAuth Client module under Redirect URLs field. The Unique Identifier field is auto-populated with a reformatted version of the name you entered for your app. You can change it if you want. Click on Save to create a new OAuth Client.
3. Integrating Drupal with Zendesk
Zendesk assigns a unique Application ID to your application. Copy the Unique Identifier ( Client ID ) and Secret ( Client Secret ) key and keep it handy.
In Drupal’s Configure OAuth tab and paste the copied Client ID and Client Secret (copied from the Zendesk Portal) in the Client ID and Client Secret text-field.
You have successfully completed your Zendesk App OAuth Server side configurations.
After successfully saving the configurations, please click on the Test Configuration button to test the connection between Drupal and Zendesk.
This Test Configuration window will provide you with a list of the attributes that are coming from the Zendesk
Select the Email Attribute from the dropdown menu in which the user's email ID is obtained and click on the Done button.
Now, in the Attribute & Role Mapping tab, you can also choose the Username Attribute from the dropdown and click on the Save Configuration button.
Please note: Mapping the Email Attribute is mandatory for your login to work.
Now log out and go to your Drupal site’s login page. You will automatically find a Login with Zendesk link there. If you want to add the SSO link to other pages as well, please follow the steps given in the image below :
