Authenticate Rocket.Chat with Django Framework

Project description

Authenticate your Rocket.Chat users with Django web framework.

This app implements the API used by Rocket.Chat IFrame authentication. Also, it handles logout by wiring up a method on Django signals.


  1. Install this app in you project:

    pip install django-rocketchat-auth
  2. Add “rocketchat_auth” to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this:

  3. Update your

    MONGO_DB = 'localhost:27017'
    ROCKETCHAT = 'localhost'
  4. Include the rocketchat_auth URLconf in your project like this:

    urlpatterns += [url(r'^rocketchat/', include('rocketchat_auth.urls'))]
  5. You will probably need to use django-cors-headers and set your Rocket.Chat domain in CORS_ORIGIN_WHITELIST

  6. Now go to your Rocket.Chat admin page > Settings > Accounts. Enable Iframe and set:


  • Enforce unique email registration in Django admin, since Rocket.Chat requires this.
  • Update Rocket.Chat user details in MongoDB when the user is modified in Django Admin.
