This PR should be the base of adding SAML as an additional authentication provider for bookstack accounts. Currently with some minimal configuration in .env as specified below, the use should be redirected to the configured identity provide and redirected back to the application. The actual handling of the logged in event remains to be done, as the data sent to the IDP is still somehow broken. Hence the WIP for this PR.

Ok, the login should now work, including automatic registration. The SAML provider is implemented in a very similar way to a Socialite plugin. It may be possible to refactor this into an actual socialite plugin. When I checked last week, such a plugin was not available. The configuration now allows for variables like


I'll address the codeclimate issues in some upcoming commit.

Synchronizing groups now works the same as with the LDAP service. There is now an ExternalAuthService in BookStack\Auth\Access, that contains the common functionality. Ideally, someone would turn this into a proper socialite provider, but that needs to be maintained.

Thank you very much @Xiphoseer for your work here. Code looks great from a quick scan but I'll have a deeper review at some point soon. I'll probably focus on getting v0.27 done before then coming back to this, Hopefully so this is part of v0.28.

Don't worry too much about codeclimate issues btw, I'm always creating new codeclimate issues 😅

@ssddanbrown ssddanbrown added this to the v0.28.0 milestone Sep 7, 2019
