Social login allows your users to sign up and log in with their favourite social media services, so they have one less login to remember.
How It Works
When a user goes to register an account, they will have the option to sign up with an active social provider. Clicking it will ask them to log in to the service and then pre-fill the registration form with their social account details, such as name and email. Once they complete the rest of the registration form, the social account will be automatically linked with the new SupportPal account so it can be used for login.
If a user already has a SupportPal account, they will have the option to log in with an active social provider. If they have not connected the account before, they will be asked to log in with their password once to verify their identity and link the accounts. After this, they will be able to log in directly to their SupportPal account with the social account only.
The social login settings can be managed by going to Settings -> Users -> Social Login. Currently the following providers can be used, please click on the provider name to find the documentation for setting up that login integration.
Unlinking an Account For a User
If you need to unlink a social account for a user, this can be done under the Linked Accounts section on the user's profile:
- Visit Users -> Manage Users.
- Find the user you would like to delete in the table (see Searching for Users) and click on their name.
- Scroll down to the Linked Accounts section.
- Click the "Unlink" button for the account that you'd like to remove and confirm the pop up that shows.
