  • Set up Outseta SSO

    Outseta gives the creators and entrepreneurs the tools to monetize their membership sites, SaaS products, or online communities. Using Tribe’s Single Sign-On (SSO), you can now integrate your Tribe community with Outseta to make it a seamless experience for Outseta members to log in to your community!

    With this integration, your users won’t have to sign up or log in with their Tribe account. Instead, they’ll use Outseta credentials to access Tribe from your log-in page.

    ➕This feature is available to customers on all plans. Learn more about Tribe's pricing here.

    Required Credentials to set up Outseta SSO in a Community

    • Client ID:* An alphanumeric string that is publicly exposed and used by the service API to identify the application. This is also used to build authorization URLs that are presented to users.

    • Client Secret:* A secret known only to the application and the authorization server. It protects the resources by only granting tokens to authorized requestors.

    • Outseta Domain:* Domain URL of your SSO provider.

    • Login Button Text:* Text defined here will appear on the login page for the users. You can insert any text. Example: Login with ABC

    • Callback URL: The URL a browser redirects to once the process of Authentication is complete.

    Login & register with email:

    To disable this option, click on your profile picture on the top-right > Administration > Settings > Authentication > turn off the toggle for Login & register with email:

    Once disabled, the user will not see the default option of signing up or logging in using Email and Password.
