Joomla OAuth Client Integration with Salesforce Single Sign-On (SSO)

Set up Single Sign-On (SSO) on your Joomla website via Salesforce with the Joomla OAuth & OpenID Connect Single Sign-On plugin. Implementing Salesforce SSO allows users to log into your websites and applications with a single set of credentials using the Salesforce login credentials.
Salesforce acts as the OAuth Provider and Joomla acts as the OAuth Client. Joomla Salesforce Authentication provides smooth login between these two, removing the need to remember usernames and passwords.
