Hello everyone,

We are looking for SSO functionalities with OpenAM.
Actually we are trying to setup an OAuth authentication (which is supported by both services).
First, we follow the instructions of this tutorial : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uLB_vn0et0
OAuth module has default configuration with Odoo, Gmail and Facebook OAuth connectors.
So, we got a working use case with Odoo connector (we can connect to our internal Odoo with OAuth Odoo connector).

Now, we are looking to have our internal OAuth connector with OpenAM.
Did someone ever try to setup an OAuth connector with OpenAM ?

Module auth_oauth in Odoo is an implementation for OAuth 2 specification. Google and Facebook are examples of service that support OAuth 2 specification. I think OpenAM is not using OAuth 2, but OpenSSO, correct me if I wrong. So, the module is not designed to support OpenAM.

Hello OpenAM (formaly known as OpenSSO) support a OAuth2 authentication protocol https://wikis.forgerock.org/confluence/display/openam/OpenAM+out+of+the+box+authentication+modules

Owhh.. that is cool. If OpenAM support to be OAuth 2 provider, then I believe the problem is reduced to configuration for auth_oauth. It's interesting, but I think I can't help any further as I don't have access to OpenAM service.
