Joomla Single Sign On - Service Provider

Joomla Single sign-on is an authentication process that allows a user to login to many integrated Joomla applications using a single Identity (username and password). Joomla single sign-on enables users to log in once and access services without having to re-enter login credentials.

Joomla Single Sign On Service Provider

Key Features

Single Sign-On (SAML SSO)

SAML Single Sign-On (SSO) allows users easy and seamless access to all resources on your Joomla site via any existing SAML 2.0 Identity Provider.

Auto-Redirect to IDP

You can restrict your site to just logged-in users by redirecting the users to your IDP if a logged in session is not found.

Backend Login to Joomla using SSO

The user can directly login to the Joomla sites backend panel (Admin Panel) if and only if the role of the user is either Admin, Super User, or Manager or their child groups using SSO.

Single Logout

Allows a user to logout from the Identity Provider ( IDP ), as soon as he logs out from the Service Provider (SP).

User Attribute Mapping

Allows mapping of user’s IDP profile to Joomla user profile and field (Name, Username, etc). The user profile is updated on performing SSO.

User Groups Mapping

Allows mapping of user’s Identity Provider groups to Joomla groups. The user groups are updated on performing SSO.

Compatible with Joomla 4

This plugin is compatible with Joomla 3 as well as Joomla 4. We always keep our plugin updated for compatibility with the latest stable Joomla releases.

Auto-sync IDP Configuration from metadata

Keep your IDP SAML Configuration and Certificates updated and in sync automatically after a fixed interval of time (in hours, days, weeks, months etc).

Support Multiple IDPs

We support multiple SAML 2.0 Compliant Identity Providers like Shibboleth, SimpleSamlPhp, Okta, ADFS, Google apps, Salesforce, Bitium, One login, Auth0, Azure AD, and many more.

Domain Mapping

Works with multiple IDPs. Allow users to redirect to their IDP based on their email domains.

This helps you to redirect anonymous users forcefully for authentication before accessing the Joomla site (entire site).


We provide faster and better troubleshooting of issues. You can share plugin configurations and logs via email or the customer portal.

Extended Features

Store Multiple Certificates

Some IDPs like Azure provide multiple certificates. So we store multiple certificates for your seamless SSO.

Bindings for SSO and SLO

We support HTTP-POST and HTTP-Redirect binding types in SSO and SLO.

Upload Metadata Using File/URL

You can upload IDP metadata via Metadata URL or Metadata file provided by IDPs. Also supports manual configurations.

Default Relay State

This feature allows you to redirect your users to a particular URL after every SSO.

Default Groups

Set default groups for new users added or created if no group is mapped.

Login User by Username or Email

By using this feature a user will be created or login using the selected option.

Disable Anonymous Access

Disable direct access and redirect to IDP for accesing public anonymous pages.

Import/Export Plugin Configuration

Import and export miniOrange plugin configurations for the plugin upgrade or Joomla upgrade.

Use Cases

Auto Sync Data to 3rd Party Add-Ons Using SSO

When a user performs SSO, data should be entered into a third-party add-ons table.

A client wants to allow users with admin access to login to the backend of Joomla after performing SSO.

Page Restriction Using SSO

End to End IDP Configuration

A Joomla instance refers to a single installation of a Joomla site. It refers to each individual website where the Plugin is active. In the case of multisite/subsite Joomla setup, each site with a separate database will be counted as a single instance. For eg. If you have the dev-staging-prod type of environment then you will require 3 licenses of the Plugin (with additional discounts applicable on pre-production environments). Contact us at for bulk discounts.

Charges are determined based on the number of Identity Providers you want to configure, with an additional charge for each extra IDP. We will setup a conference call / Go to Meeting and do End to End configuration for your IDP as well as plugin. We provide services to do the configuration on behalf. (Extra charges applicable at $60/hr).

At miniOrange, we want to ensure you are 100% happy with your purchase. If the licensed plugin you purchased is not working as advertised and you've attempted to resolve any feature issues with our support team but couldn't get them resolved, we will refund the amount paid for the plugin. Please note that we will not refund any fees paid for support plans, support hours, or customization charges.

Note that this policy does not cover the following cases:

  • Change in mind or change in requirements after purchase.
  • Infrastructure issues do not allow the functionality to work.
