Magento 2 SSO

Updated 7 May 2024

Magento 2 SSO or Magento 2 Single Sign-On module allows the integration of the Magento store with third-party applications.

However, the user can sign in to the third-party applications through their Magento 2 sign-up credentials.

The admin can also integrate the UVdesk support portal with the user’s Magento store.

Third-party integration like (, Java, PHP, etc.)

Follow the below steps to integrate the Magento 2 SSO with third-party integration like, Java, PHP, etc. 1.) Create a button at the client end (like to login from Magento. After hitting that button redirect to the following URL.

API to get the token

API Resource :
Method: GET Response: redirecturl?token=#tokenval Description: get the token Note: that redirect_uri and client_id is mandatory field append to URL Button Display 2.) After that, at the API end(Magento end) client id will verify that the client is registered at the Magento end or not? If the customer is registered then a login page will appear to log in. Thus, After login a page appears with authorizing and cancel button. If authorized then a token will be provided and append in the redirect URL. But if the client is already login with some account then a page appears with authorizing and cancel button. If the client is not authorized then an error message will be shown or the user cancels to authorize then it redirects to the redirect URL. Authorize or Cancel

3.)After that client will hit again the Magento SSO module API with the provided token and client id

API to get the Magento user email information

API Resource :

Description: get the user email information

if client_id and auth token verified we send the customer email and name with the expiration of 2 minutes encoded by JWT using client secret key else error will be provided in $response[‘error] form
