Single Sign On / external authentication API

Stan Piekarczyk asked on August 4, 2014 13:04

I use Kentico CMS version 7.

We have also recently implementer new CRM solution which works with the online module. This is Blackbaud CRM integrated with online module called BBIS (Blackbaud Information Services) and also Luminate Online (for specific peer-to-peer events management).

These online services require our members to login to access their CRM data, manage client accounts, etc…

The Single Sign On solution was implemented between CRM->BBIS and Luminate Online to let user create only one account and seamlessly come from one system to another without need of re-typing login credentials again.

Can you please advise how we can connect Kentico CMS authentication to validate against this 3rd party database? (so far we used Kentico CMS Users/Roles to manage web pages which required passwords but we want to connect Kentico with described above Single Sign On solution)

Never had to handle this, so I don't have experience. But this might give you some information (it comes from the v8 docs, but might still apply to v7):

It looks like upgrade to v8 is necessary. Thanks.

Upgrade to v8 is a good idea and may make your programming life a bit easier although you can do SSO with the other services and Kentico in v7 if an upgrade is not an option at the moment. I you would have to code your own claims-based authentication or SAML with v7.
