Odoo Single Sign-On (SSO)


Odoo is a powerful all in one management software, offering a range of business applications. It offers both community open source and enterprise versions with tools like including CRM, website/e-commerce, billing, accounting, manufacturing, warehouse - and project management, and inventory. Businesses can use this to manage their businesses and provide customized solutions to it's users.

Challenge faced by Odoo Users

If a user is logged into his site then he shouldn't have to log in second time to access services/resources on Odoo. A Single Sign-On (SSO) solution is required to allow users to be able to seamlessly move between their website and Odoo without the hassle of maintaining separate credentials. This allows admins to embed Odoo views on their site to give a unified experience to their users and customers.

miniOrange provides SSO solution for Odoo

miniOrange provides Single Sign-On solution to login to Odoo from your existing website using connectors or plugins. miniOrange supports JWT/OAuth/OpenID standard which is used to securely authenticate the user to login into applications like Odoo. A custom OAuth connector for Odoo enables SSO with any existing website.

Connect with External Source of Users
