How to configure Single Sign-On for Skedler

Modified on Thu, 02 Feb 2023 at 04:54 AM


Single Sign-On (SSO) is a system that allows users to log in to multiple applications or services with a single set of credentials. This eliminates the need for users to remember multiple usernames and passwords, making it more convenient and secure for them to access their various accounts. SSO systems often use centralized authentication services, such as Active Directory or LDAP, to authenticate users and grant them access to the various applications they need to use.

How it Works?

With this feature's help, users can now log in to Skedler using an identity provider (such as Google, Okta, Private Active Directory, etc.) without entering their login information again. In order to authenticate users and grant access to the Skedler application, the IdP and Skedler communicate via the OAuth 2.0 protocol.

Configure SSO for Skedler 

Step 1- Open the reporting.yml file.

Step 2- Scroll down to the ssoOAuth section and uncomment to configure the following parameters in reporting.yml

Note below is the Sample config details with IdP as Okta.

#   - authType: 'Okta'
#     icon: 'okta.(svg || png)' // Custom icon for the IDP,  Add your images inside the assets folder Linux: /var/lib/skedler-xg/assets/external  windows:  c:/skedler-xg-system-files/assets/external
#     issuer: 'https://<tenant-id>'
#     authorizationURL: 'https://<tenant-id>'
#     tokenURL: 'https://<tenant-id>'
#     userInfoURL: 'https://<tenant-id>'
#     clientID: 'xxxxxxx'
#     clientSecret: 'xxxxxxxx'
#     callbackURL: 'http://hostname:3005/api/1/user/skedler'
#     scope: 'openid profile'

Step 3- Restart Skedler to apply the configured changes.


By default callback URL is 'http://hostname:3005/api/1/user/skedler', which should be the same as the sign-in redirect URL

If you use the reverse proxy using a proxyBasePath, you need to update the callback URL with the proxyBasePath in the reporting.yml | example, http://{domain}/{proxyBasePath}/api/1/user/skedler
