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

This discussion is related to the Vanilla jsConnect Auto SignIn addon.


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 ???
