Nuxeo Platform User Documentation

Managing Authentication with Other Applications

Updated: July 31, 2019 Page Information Edit on GitHub

This add-on is deprecated since Nuxeo Platform 6.0.

The Platform offers the possibility to use external gadgets in the Nuxeo Platform from the user interface and to use Nuxeo Platform's gadgets in other websites or applications.

External gadgets can be from public websites and applications, but you can also add gadgets from websites or applications that require you to log in, like a gadget from your email provider. If you want to use Nuxeo's gadgets in other applications, authentication is required as well.

OAuth is a protocol that enables external applications and Nuxeo Platform to access each other's data. Users can allow "consumer" (ie external) applications and websites to access the Nuxeo Platform data, Nuxeo Platform being the "provider".

In this section, we will take the example of iGoogle, that we want to authorize to display Nuxeo's data in a gadget.

To authorize external application to access Nuxeo Platform content:

  1. In the Admin Center tab, click on the OpenSocial / OAuth tab.
  2. Click on the Consumer tab.
  3. Click on the Add link. The form to add a new consumer is displayed.
  4. Fill in the form with the parameters below.
  5. Click on the Create button.
