OAuth, specifically OAuth 2.0 is the industry standard for authentication across multiple platforms. Popular platforms such as Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn support sign in through OAuth. OpenWater supports these three providers out of the box. In addition, many IT departments have implemented OAuth as their protocol of choice for third party systems. We can work with your implementation of OAuth.

OAuth is used by a lot of places and systems, here is a small list of compatible providers:

  • GrowthZone

  • Member Clicks

  • Microsoft 365 / Microsoft Dynamics

  • Neon AMS / Neon CRM

  • Novi AMS

  • Personify

  • Wild Apricot

  • YourMembership

  • CiviCRM (Drupal / WordPress)

  • Auth0

  • Okta

  1. Get Started with Integrations Hub

  2. Add a new Single Sign On connector for Basic OAuth

  3. You will have to give your IT provider a redirect URL, this is the Process Url

  4. In return your IT admin should give you the following:

    1. Login Url (Auth Url)

    2. Client ID

    3. Client Secret

    4. Token Url Endpoint

    5. User Info / Profile Url Endpoint

    6. Scope(s)

  5. Give the connector name, then paste in the Login Url (Auth Url) into the Login Url. Then click on Credentials and add new credential. Paste in the Client ID, Client Secret, Token Endpoint and User Info Endpoint. Finally click to add a scope.
