Auto login or bypass "Sign in with {site_title}" link for Vanilla jsConnect


We have integrated SSO jsConnect and it working nicely. After user login on website, if users open forum page(http://mysite.com/forums) they always have to click "Sign in with {site_title}" link to login into the forum system.I don't want users to click "Sign In with {site_title}"link again for just login, basically I want to automate that things anyways.Please find my setup as below.

Vanilla Version: 2.5.1

Vanilla jsConnect Settings:

Version: 1.5.4
Authentication URL: http://mysite.com/sso
Sign In URL: http://mysite.com/login?Target={target}
Registration URL: http://mysite.com/register
Sign Out URL: http://mysite.com/sso-logout
Make this connection your default signin method: Enabled
This is trusted connection and can sync roles & permissions.: Enabled
Signing In "Auto Connect" option is enabled.

User Registration Settings: Connect

Please guide me on this.Thanks


  • Hi, have you figured out how to deal with this issue?

    No not yet any idea will be of great help

  • we were using this plugin https://open.vanillaforums.com/addon/jsconnectautosignin-plugin for vanilla 2.1 and it worked fine, but after migrating to 2.5 it fails (most probably not compatible)

    There is a chapter in the documentation concerning SSO. Maybe you could get important there?

    What we have done is that when user get logged into our system we call forums/sso in hidden iframe which eventually automate whole process of auto login in forum Thanks for help R_J

  • We're also facing the same issue. SSO works, but users will still need to click on the "Sign in with {site_title}" link.

    In our case nothing is prompted that would require user input. Clicking on the link basically just logs you in without any notice.

    Is there maybe a possibility to write some javascript to automatically click this link for the user?

  • On your mother site, you can write your own script to redirect user upon successful login.

    //go to forum.example.com/sso

    What is your mother site like, WordPress, custom, another CMS ???
