As raised by a user in support ticket 2234. We should perhaps consider implementing external OAuth login providers that are not related to social media companies. Obviously we have Raven but that excludes people who aren't current Cambridge University members and those Cambridge graduates who don't have Raven for Life (which is I think a recent thing in the last ~3 or so years)?
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
No objections here to adding more from https://github.com/hwi/HWIOAuthBundle. I have joined in on the ticket 2234 to ask the user if they have any preferences for additional provider(s). (We might as well add whichever provider(s) is most helpful for them, as a minimum.)
I would note that Google isn't really a social media company per se.
FWIW, if I was choosing from that list of supported OAuth providers myself, the next four I'd prioritize would be:
The two Microsoft ones because Microsoft is so prevalent in general; Slack because I've heard rumours that student theatre groups use it a lot these days (?); Insta because I think it's more popular in some circles than Facebook, and that might include creative/performing arts circles...
