Using SSO (Single Sign-On) to log into iAdvize

iAdvize offers a SSO method (Single Sign-On) that allows you to provide your application users a unique authentification system. It will allow them to get connected to iAdvize without having to enter their username and password.

1) Finding the SSO key of a user account

From the iAdvize administration:

When editing a user account, the SSO key can be displayed when clicking "SSO token" :

From the iAdvize API:

The SSO key associated to a user account is available from our API, in the operator ressource (field sso_key).

If you don't know your API key, the article dedicated to our API explains how to obtain it. 

2) Getting connected using the SSO key

All you need is to use the key in this url:

  • For the standard platform: http://www.iadvize.com/admin/login/?key=YOUR_SSO_TOKEN
  • For the high availability platform: http://ha.iadvize.com/admin/login/?key=YOUR_SSO_TOKEN

When a user visits this URL, he will be automatically logged into its iAdvize account without having to type any login / password.

3) Specific links

It is possible to add the “&dest” parameter to be automatically redirected to a specific page of the iAdvize administration.

For example:

Page URL (these examples are based on the standard platform url)
Discussion panel http://www.iadvize.com/admin/login/?key=YOUR_SSO_TOKEN&dest=/pupitre/
Supervision http://www.iadvize.com/admin/login/?key=YOUR_SSO_TOKEN&dest=/admin/supervision
Users page http://www.iadvize.com/admin/login/?key=YOUR_SSO_TOKEN&dest=/admin/users/

To figure out the "dest" parameter associated to a specific page, just visit that page in your web browser. In the address bar, copy the part of the url located after "iadvize.com".

To access the chat logs of my website, I should use the address: http://www.iadvize.com/admin/login/?key=YOUR_SSO_TOKEN&dest=/admin/site/12345678/reporting/conversations/
