Bigcommerce SSO by miniOrange has developed a ready to use Single Sign-On solution for BigCommerce. BigCommerce is a SaaS eCommerce platform that allows business owners to set up an online store and sell products on the web. BigCommerce allows its users to use their existing credentials to log in to their platform using JWT (JSON Web Token). But an interface needs to be created on the existing site that can generate that JWT token and log users into BigCommerce using their existing credentials. miniOrange solves this issue and provides Single Sign-On(SSO) into BigCommerce using miniOrange or any other third party Identity providers (IDP) with ease.
BigCommerce users want a continuous and seamless access to their portal through their existing accounts. They don't wish for their users/customers to have a separate set of credentials for logging in to BigCommerce. BigCommerce provides a way for its users to allow their users/customers to log in to the platform seamlessly. But, an interface needs to be created which would allow this.
miniOrange provides an integrated solution where a logged in user's existing session can be used to log the users into BigCommerce by creating a valid JSON Web Token (JWT).
miniOrange provides user authentication from various external sources, which can be Directories (like ADFS, Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, OpenLDAP, Google, AWS Cognito etc), Identity Providers (like Shibboleth, Ping, Okta, OneLogin, KeyCloak), Databases (like MySQL, Maria DB, PostgreSQL) and many more.
