Is SSO compatible with selfhosted Loomio ?

J Jordan Public Seen by 78


I would like to run dockerized Loomio with others services like nextcloud / rocketchat with different domain behind a nginx-proxy, with SSO (manage by keycloak).

Is it possible to configure a SSO configuration for loomio ? I don't find any information about it :(
Thanks !

To be more precise, would it be possible to make Loomio compatible with any SSO with SAML or OpenID Connect ?
I am surprised that not all communities created around Loomio use SSO, which is a very useful tool to manage user data in a centralized and secure way. Maybe I'm missing something...

Hi, yes we've connected to a few kinds of SAML server now.

You need to set two keys: The first is just an "enable" flag, the second is the IDP metadata url.

We're looking at supporting any open id connect in the future.

Ohhhh amazing ! Thank you ! Maybe would be good to add this in the documentation of "loomio-deploy" :)

Hi ,

Sorry to re-open this discussion, but I'm still trying to configure SAML with keycloak and I am facing an issue. When clicking on "Continue with SAML" on Loomio, it redirect me on my keycloak instance but with an error "Unknown login requester"

I think this is a Keycloak specific error, but i'm working on it since a long time...

In Loomio, the two keys "SAMLAPP_KEY" and "SAML_IDP_METADATA_URL" are the only configuration needed ?

Thanks for you answer.

Dont' be sorry. Yes, those are the only keys needed. Are you connected to talk.theborderland? They successfully connected loomio and keycloak.

@Hugi Ásgeirsson Can you connect us with the person who successfully setup keycloak and Loomio?


Jordan Tue 24 Sep 2019 10:04PM

Oh god you are my hero. Thank you very much Rob !

PS: talk.theborderland is AMAZING ! Exactly what I'm working on. Their login page is so beautiful :D
