    Magento SSO

    Updated 26 September 2017

    Magento SSO (Single Sign-On) extension allows the customers to use their existing credentials for logging into various third-party applications such as UVdesk. The customer can use one set of credentials for various platforms. The customers won’t have to remember multiple passwords for each login. Using Magento SSO, the customers can log into the UVdesk Helpdesk system using their existing Magento store credentials. This will simplify the procedure of creating a support ticket as the customers can use Single Sign On feature easily.


    • The admin can register the clients from the admin panel.
    • The customers can log into the UVdesk help-desk system using their Magento credentials.
    • The admin can set the Cancel URL or can set it as empty to redirect the customers to the storefront.
    • No need to remember the credentials for multiple login access to other portals like the UVDesk help desk system.


    After unzipping the extension you will find the src folder. Inside the src folder, you have the app and lib folders. Now, move the app and lib folder into Magento root folder on the server as shown below in the snapshot.
