Thinkific provides a platform that allows businesses or people to use their existing resources and knowledge to create and deliver online courses. Companies/People usually have an existing application/site where student credentials are already stored. Thinkific allows its users to use their existing credentials to log in to their Thinkific platform using JWT (JSON Web Token). An interface needs to be created on the existing site that can generate that JWT token and log students into Thinkific using their existing credentials. miniOrange has a solution to this problem.
Thinkific users want a continuous and seamless access to their portal through their existing accounts. They don't wish for their students to have a separate set of credentials for logging in to Thinkific. Thinkific provides a way for its users to allow their students 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 Thinkific by creating a valid JSON Web Token ( JWT ). Thinkific user is relieved from maintaining separate user credentials for its students.
As a result, miniOrange Single Sign-On (SSO) solution is implemented by installing miniOrange IDP plugin. Thinkific users can now login into Thinkific platform using their existing credentials.
