The AuditConsole can also be set up to allow users to login using an OpenID provider or their Google Account. This allows for a convenient single-sign-on setup with an external authentication provider.
As noted in the beginning of this chapter, the users need to
be present in the AuditConsole user database. In addition to
user.openid attribute of a user
needs to be specified in order for the AuditConsole to be able
to find the corresponding user.
The AuditConsole is prepared for OpenID/Google login but that feature is disabled by default. If you want to allow users to use OpenID, you will need to enable that feature explicitly in the AuditConsole Setup -> Basic Settings.
The following figure shows the setup dialog that allows administrators to enable OpenID/Google authentication.
Saving this form with OpenID support enabled will take immediate effect. No restart of the AuditConsole is required.
