Just another way to make your life easier, MantisHub has just rolled out single sign-on support for GitHub and Bitbucket accounts. We know you’ve been waiting for it and now it is a single click away to enable it for all users of your MantisHub!
MantisHub is fast becoming a developers’ best friend. With integrations for IDE, test management, team chat via Slack/Hipchat and now SSO with the most popular code hosting services.
One less password to remember, cause you can now simply head to your MantisHub login page and click on GitHub or Bitbucket to login using these providers.
As well as adding convenience this can also provide extra security. GitHub and Bitbucket support two factor authentication (2FA), so having your users access MantisHub with either of these can deliver even better security for your data. And you’re not potentially re-cycling your passwords from other systems.As the MantisHub administrator, you would just need to install the “Single sign-on via Auth0” plugin. For users to be able to login, their email address registered in MantisHub must be also associated with GitHub/Bitbucket accounts as a verified email address.
If you have customer sign-up enabled on your service you can also utilize this for automatic account creation. If there is no email match with the providers account when a user attempts to login using single sign-on, MantisHub will automatically create a new user account with reporter access to your public projects with the providers primary verified email address and same username as the service used to sign-in.
