Drupal ORCID SSO Login with OAuth/OpenId Client | Drupal ORCID Login

Drupal ORCID SSO integration will allow you to configure Single Sign-On ( SSO ) login between your Drupal site and ORCID using OAuth/OpenID protocol. Drupal OAuth 2.0/OpenID connect module gives the ability to enable login using OAuth 2.0/OIDC Single Sign-On to Drupal Site. We provide the Drupal OAuth/OpenID Client module for Drupal 7, Drupal 8, and Drupal 9.

Here we will go through a guide to configure the SSO login between Drupal and ORCID. By following these steps, users of ORCID will be able to log into the Drupal site using their ORCID credentials.

If you have any queries or if you need any sort of assistance in configuring the module, you can contact us at drupalsupport@xecurify.com. If you want, we can also schedule an online meeting to help you configure the Drupal OAuth & OpenID Connect Login – OAuth2 Client SSO Login module.
