IXProfileClient

Build Status Coverage Status PyPI

Library package for Django applications using the IX Profiles server for authentication and user management.

Functionality

  • Logging in is managed by the profile server. Users are redirected to its login page for logging in.
  • Users are identified by emails, they use their email to log in to the profile server.
  • User details (e.g. names) are updated from the profile server.
  • Creating new users in the admin creates them on the profile server. Setting is_active flag subscribes and unsubscribes them from the application.

Usage

To connect to the profile server, the following settings should be configured:

# The URL of the profile server to use.
PROFILE_SERVER = 'https://profiles.somewhere/'

# Key and secret to authenticate on the profile server for user management.
# Must correspond to a registered Website on the profile server specified by
# the above URL.
PROFILE_SERVER_KEY = 'myapp'
PROFILE_SERVER_SECRET = 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX'

LOGIN_URL = 'ixprofile-start-login'

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    # other applications,
    'social.apps.django_app.default',
    'ixprofile_client',
)

AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS = (
    'ixprofile_client.backends.IXProfile',
    # any other backends you might want; default ModelBackend is not needed
)

If using Django < 1.7, include:

from ixprofile_client import SOCIAL_AUTH_PIPELINE

url(r'', include('ixprofile_client.urls'))
