Biocryptology Connector module


Incubator (services)






Compatible with Magnolia 6.2.

The Biocryptology Connector module enables any Magnolia installation to be able to authenticate using Biocryptology’s identity platform through the use of Open Id Connect.

This means you will get a new login link in the travel demo pages which will initiate Biocryptology’s authentication and let you access protected content on Magnolia.

The module also lets you logout from Biocryptology’s service when you logout from Magnolia

This module is at the INCUBATOR level.
