Single Sign On Implementation for the Docebo LMS
This package is meant to allow a simple python interface to add a third party Single Sign On to the Docebo Learning Management System. Docebo’s SSO does not create a user that doesn’t exist, or update the credentials of a user that does exist.
There are two ways to use this package, depending on the amount of customization that you need with Docebo’s sign on.
The user API is a simple, flexible set of methods to sync a Docebo user with a locally created user object. To ue the methods, the DoceboUser object must first be instantiated with all of the information to be synced with the user from Docebo
A full list of valid user parameters can be found at Docebo’s API reference: https://www.docebo.com/wp-content/uploads/media/Docebo_APImanual.pdf
from doceboSSO import docebo_user new_user = DoceboUser( userid='batman', firstname='john', lastname='Doe', ... )
Next, the API and SSO keys and the hosting domain for your LMS must be initialized. This method will also create the appropriate hashes and tokens necessary for using Docebo’s API
new_user.initialize_keys( domain='http://example.docebosaas.com' api_key='xxxxxxxxxx' api_secret='xxxxxxxxxx' sso_token='xxxxxx' )
Finally, you can use the methods in the DoceboUser api to interact with Docebo – the methods use the parameters you input into the DoceboUser object and generate valid params/api_keys.
if new_user.verify_existence(): new_user.update_on_docebo() else: new_user.create() redirect_url = new_user.signin()
The above is a simple script to create the local user initialized in the first step if their userid doesn’t exist on Docebo, and update their user parameters if they do exist.
redirect_to will contain a valid, signed, URL to signin to that user’s account on Docebo that can be redirected to or pasted into a browser.
The following call can also be used to update the specified user attributes on the local DoceboUser. This info can then be pushed to Docebo/used to create a new user.
new_user.update_info_locally( firstname='jane', lastname='dae', ... )
Available methods are:
All of these methods return boolean values for success for easy control flow from doceboSSO import docebo_user # Initialize user object with keys, secrets and domain initialize_keys(self, domain, api_secret, api_key, sso_secret) # Verify user exists in Docebo # Hits /api/user/checkUsername verify_existence(self) # Update remote user params given local user information update_on_docebo(self) # Create a new user based on local user # Hits /api/user/create create(self) # Delete user # Hits /api/user/delete delete(self) # Sign user in (if account exists), and return URL which will sign that user into their docebo account signin(self) # Update local user's information update_info_locally
In order to call delete or update_on docebo, the docebo unique-id for that given user is required.
create() and verify_existence() automatically add this field on success
You can also use the following method to add the uid manually.
The second method of interaction is less abstracted, but gives the user more control over the params. Where the User API generates params and fills in information for the user, the Methods API requires the user to input a set of params as a dictionary at every call.
The correct format for the params generated for each method can be found at: https://www.docebo.com/wp-content/uploads/media/Docebo_APImanual.pdf
The api_key, api_secret and sso_secret must still be initialized as in the User API.
Available methods are:
These methods return the json body of the responses they receive. # Verify user exists in Docebo verify_user(self, params) # Update user params w/input params edit_user(self, params) # Create a new user given input params # If called on a user that already exists, returns None create_user(self, params) # Delete user corresponding to provided unique_id delete_user(self, params) # Sign user in (if account exists), and return URL which will sign that user into their docebo account setup_valid_sso_path_and_params(self, username)
