Note: This plugin was built for and tested on Elgg 1.8 and as such that is the listed compatibility.  It will almost certainly work with newer versions as-is, it just hasn't been tested on those versions yet.

This plugin allows Elgg users to be synchonized with a Stormpath directory for shared credentials with other applications as single-sign-on. Existing users will have accounts added to Stormpath the next time they sign into Elgg. New users will have accounts added to Stormpath on registration. Users from other applications that populate the associated Stormpath Directory will be able to log in using their existing Stormpath credentials, and an Elgg account will be created for them. This plugin handles endpoints for validating email verification as well as forgot password links.

Enable password reset and email verification on the directory if required. Custom url endpoints have been defined if necessary, use the following: Password reset email base url


Email verification base url


Password Issues

If you are setting up Stormpath on an installation with existing users they may have existing passwords that do not meet the requirements of Stormpath. These restrictions can be lifted in the Stormpath Directory. By removing all password restrictions Stormpath will be able to receive existing user passwords. If you are setting this up on a new site with no existing users it would be preferable to change the Elgg password restrictions to match Stormpath.

ID Site

For SSO handling it's recommended to set up the ID Site in the Stormpath settings. The authorized redirect endpoint for your site will be [url]/stormpath/idsite Login and logout urls are configured as such:

Login - [url]/stormpath/login Logout = [url]/stormpath/logout

The workflows and presentation of SSO tend to vary from project to project, therefore no UI has been implemented for this in this plugin. Developers can add these SSO links to their themes or other override plugins.
