More authentication methods

January 22, 2018 at 7:05am (Edited 2 years ago)
Right now we're only supporting Slack as an authentication method. It would be great to add more, including Google and GitHub.
If your organization is looking for an alternative, please drop a note here so that we can prioritize better 🙂

This was one of the things that we noticed as well - my client's entire office does not use Slack. An email/password based login is what they would have preferred, with Google auth being second favorite. For developers, GitHub is a great choice.

Also, if you logged once with Slack and then with Gsuite (or the other way) you'll get two workspaces. They should be reunited (by the custom domain name).

Hey Romain, if you email hello@getoutline.com we can unite the teams in our backend so that you can use either to signin.

Hi, first of all thank you so much for such a great product! I'd love to use Outline as our company-wide wiki but we are restricted to Azure/Office 365. Is there a possibility you could implement the Office 365 SSO?

Hi – the maintainers are not prioritizing more authentication methods at this time in favor of working on other functionality. However anyone is welcome to contribute via the OSS project

Hi Tom, this looks like a great solution. We would love to try it out but we too (unfortunately) use Office365. I would imagine quite a few organisations will be in the same position. Is there any timeline on when this might happen and what the priorities are?

Hey Nick, I definitely think Office365 auth is the most obvious next authentication method to add to Outline. There's no timeline for adding new methods right now though.

Why did you guys chose SSO only? Email/Password is still widely used and can be a workaround for organizations using a different SSO service than the ones you currently provide.

SSO allows us to avoid building team management into this project
