WordPress has long been one of the most popular integrations among our customers and some customers manage multiple WordPress accounts with many contributors. The original WordPress integration uses form-based authentication, which means we simply automate the login process using email address and password.
However, since we’re on a crusade against passwords and WordPress has a nice plug-in framework, we decided to implement a SAML plug-in that you can use with OneLogin. In addition to simply eliminating passwords, the SAML integration provides these benefits:
- Easy, one-click access to WordPress
- Users can sign in with their Active Directory or LDAP credentials
- Multi-factor authentication for added security
- Centrally de-provision former employees and contractors
Plug-ins are available to anyone who hosts WordPress themselves (i.e. not on wordpress.com) and you can add it in a matter of seconds. Just click Plugins in WordPress’ sidebar and search for SAML. OneLogin’s plug-in will appear at the top.
