What is SSO and how to enable it for Vuukle comment widget

Updated over a month ago

Single sign-on (SSO) is an authentication process that allows a user to access multiple applications with one set of login credentials.

If your site has authorization you can use SSO with the Vuukle comment widget.

Firstly email and secret apiKey are being hashed by SHA512 encryption:

This gives us a signature:


General info and the signature are being encrypted by base64 (using UTF8 encoding):

{ "username": "Sample User Name", "email": "", "public_key": "ead41e46-a5fd-11e2-bc97-bc764e0492cc", "signature":
"0C9C314E36B781786DA65F2CF7E30C7352655273786831314A9394A29277CEB59DB3005203A42F2DEA8A15A44630243E5B4F10C19AB0C7D703AC29D6C78A0180" }

So the SSO token is generated:


And finally the token can be used to gain momentum and fully secured access to your account.

(function() { var d = document, s = d.createElement('script'); s.onload = function()
s.src = ''; (d.head || d.body).appendChild(s); })();

How to disable Vuukle and social auth

   var VUUKLE_CONFIG = {
   	apiKey: "Place Your API Key Here",
   	articleId: "Generate Unique id for your article",
   comments: {
  	auth: {

  		sso: {
  			onClick: login_from_vuukle // some function to invoke for sso modal
   (function() {
  	 var d = document,
   		s = d.createElement('script');
   s.src = '';
  (d.head || d.body).appendChild(s);

This will help you to create smooth UX on your site.

Also, you need to set the SSO login type by using our dashboard. To do this you need to move to the “Site Settings” page, open the “Comment Widget” subpage -> “Login Settings” and click on the “Set login method to SSO only” button
