Configuring OAuth 2

Note: This feature may not be available in your plan. Please contact your Advocacy Coach to learn more.

Choosing Your Configuration

There are two possible configurations for OAuth2 depending on the experience you'd like for the advocate sign in / sign up flow.

  1. OAuth2 Dual Login: This provides the Advocate with the option to sign in / sign up via OAuth2 in addition to these:
    1. Traditional Username / Password method
    2. Social Sign-in using Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook
  2. OAuth2 Single Sign-On:  OAuth2 is the only option for sign-in / sign up to your Hub. In this configuration, advocates are directed to your sign-in page upon entering the Hub - bypassing the default AdvocateHub sign-in options.

Both of these options have the same setup process, but Option 2 requires an additional configuration step. For a more detailed look at how these flows look to your Advocate's, check out our OAuth2 FAQ article.

Configuring OAuth2 Dual Login

To find the OAuth 2 configuration area, click on your name in the top right corner of  Admin View and click on Integrations > Custom OAuth Provider.

Below are the steps to configure the OAuth 2. 

1. Enter your application id/client id and secret. The callback URL should be: https://{{yourhubdomain}}
or if you have your custom domain, please enter: https://{{your_custom_domain}}/users/auth/custom_oauth2/callback

2. Enter the API endpoint for the OAuth Provider. i.e.

3. Provide the URL path to find the Token, Authorization, and where to fetch the user's information (you may need to provide configure a scope to gain access to the user's email address).

4. Map the UID, email address, and name from the OAuth2 provider to Influitive

5. Provide branding, and button images (these show up on the advocate's profile, and if the OAuth provider is added to our login screen)

For your reference, here are the fields. Those marked with a * are required:

Once this is setup, you are all set for the OAuth2 Dual Login. If you would like to present OAuth2 as the only login option for your Hub, please proceed to the next step.

Enable OAuth Single Sign-On

After completing the steps above, you can now proceed with Option 2 as mentioned in the introduction. That is, bypass the AdvocateHub login system and present OAuth 2 as the only login option for your Hub.

1. Go to Settings > System > Login Security

2. In the Single Sign-On section, choose the Enable option and select OAuth.

3. Save your changes and you're good to go. OAuth is now the only way advocates can enter your Hub. 

Configuring Signout URL

To configure the signout URL we need to do the following:

1. Go to  Settings > System > Login Security

2. In the  Single Sign-On section, enter your Signout URL in the 'SSO Signout URL' field.

Note: If the field is greyed out you can enable Single Sign-On briefly which will activate the field allowing you to enter the URL and then disable Single Sign-On again before saving. 

3. Save your changes
