#Elgg Stormpath

This plugin allows Elgg users to be synchonized with a Stormpath directory for shared credentials with other applications as single-sign-on. Existing users will have accounts added to Stormpath the next time they sign into Elgg.

New users will have accounts added to Stormpath on registration.

Users from other applications that populate the associated Stormpath Directory will be able to log in using their existing Stormpath credentials, and an Elgg account will be created for them.

This plugin handles endpoints for validating email verification as well as forgot password links.


Unzip this plugin to mod/elgg_stormpath

Enable the plugin through the admin interface


Download the apiKeys.properties file from Stormpath and upload it in the plugin settings

Once the apiKeys have been uploaded, select your application from the dropdown and save the settings again.

##Stormpath Account Store

Enable password reset and email verification on the directory if required.

Custom url endpoints have been defined if necessary, use the following:

Password reset email base url [url]/stormpath/passwordreset

Email verification base url [url]/stormpath/emailverification

##Password Issues If you are setting up Stormpath on an installation with existing users they may have existing passwords that do not meet the requirements of Stormpath. These restrictions can be lifted in the Stormpath Directory. By removing all password restrictions Stormpath will be able to receive existing user passwords.

If you are setting this up on a new site with no existing users it would be preferable to change the Elgg password restrictions to match Stormpath.

##ID Site

For SSO handling it's recommended to set up the ID Site in the Stormpath settings.

The authorized redirect endpoint for your site will be [url]/stormpath/idsite

Login and logout urls are configured as such:

Login - [url]/stormpath/login

Logout = [url]/stormpath/logout
