What is Joomla Single Sign-On?

The Joomla SAML Single Sign-On Service Provider plugin enables SSO login within Joomla via various SAML 2.0 compliant Identity Providers, including Azure AD, Azure B2C, ADFS, Auth0, Keycloak, and more.

Use-Cases for Joomla Single Sign-On

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

- During single sign-on between the IdP and the Joomla site, once a user is authenticated by the identity provider, they are logged into Joomla. Following authentication, the Identity Provider needs to transmit specific data stored within it to a third-party application that is already integrated with Joomla.

- Accessing information in the form of attributes sent by the IdP to the Service Provider (SP) as Joomla. These attributes are then showcased on third-party applications or within articles.

Backend Login to Joomla using SSO

- Backend login is provided for the following roles:
     1) Superuser/Admin and their subgroups.
     2) Manager and their subgroups.

- If users belong to any of the above roles and perform single sign-on, they are logged in and redirected to the Joomla backend.

- Otherwise, they are logged in and directed to the Joomla frontend.

- During single sign-on, upon receiving a SAML response from your IDP, our Joomla SAML SP plugin verifies the user's role.

Page Restriction Using SSO

- We have a solution Page restriction plugin which is used with Joomla SAML SP plugin. In which a user is automatically redirected to an Identity Provider for self-authentication whenever they try to access any restricted pages or articles (for example, the payment page).

- Users can access this restricted page after performing single sign-on.
