OpenAM Single Sign-On (SSO) with Magento enables secure login access into Magento using OpenAM as OAuth and OpenID Connect provider. Magento OAuth/OpenID Connect Single Sign-On module gives the ability to enable OAuth/OpenID Single Sign-On for Magento. If you want users to log in to your Magento site using their OpenAM credentials, you can simply do it using our Magento OAuth/OpenID Connect Single Sign-On Plugin. Once you configure the OpenAM with the Magento module, you can allow users to SSO to your Magento site using OpenAM. It has powerful Single Sign-On (SSO) features like user profile attribute mapping and role mapping, among others. We'll go over how to set up Single Sign-On (SSO) for user authentication between Magento and OpenAM in this guide.
