Osso - Open Source SAML SSO

Osso is an open source service that handles SAML tenant onboarding, documentation and authentication.

Your application can then consume normalized user profile resources as part of an OAuth 2.0 authorization code grant flow.

Learn more about Osso at https://ossoapp.com or continue below to start consuming your Osso instance from your application via Python Social Auth.

To enable Osso as a backend:

  • On your project settings, add Osso on your AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS:

  • Create or update an OAuth Client in your Osso instance, adding a redirect URI to your allow http://example.com/complete/osso/ replacing http://example.com with your application’s domain. Grab the Client ID and Client Secret to use in your application.

  • Add these values of Client ID and Client Secret from Osso in your project settings file.

The Client ID should be added on SOCIAL_AUTH_OSSO_KEY and the Client Secret should be added on SOCIAL_AUTH_OSSO_SECRET. You also need to add your Osso instance base URL as SOCIAL_AUTH_OSSO_BASE_URL:

SOCIAL_AUTH_OSSO_BASE_URL = 'https://demo.ossoapp.com'

When constructing your sign in flow, Osso supports passing an email or domain parameter in order to route the user to the correct IDP. If you don’t include one of these parameters, and instead implement a button, Osso will display a hosted login page. Here’s an example login form with email:

<form action="{% url 'social:begin' 'osso' %}" method="post" class="login-form">
    <input type="email" name="email" />
    {% csrf_token %}
    <button type="submit">Sign in with SSO</button>
