googleappsauth authenticates Django Users against a Google Apps Domain

Project description

googleappsauth allows you to authenticate your Django users against an Google Apps domain. This means you basically get a single sign-on solution, provided that all users of your django application also have Accounts in Google Apps for your Domain.

Usage

To use googleappsauth, configuration in settings.py should look like this:

GOOGLE_APPS_DOMAIN = 'example.com'
GOOGLE_APPS_CONSUMER_KEY = 'example.com'
GOOGLE_APPS_CONSUMER_SECRET = '*sekret*'
# domain where your application is running
GOOGLE_OPENID_REALM = 'http://*.hudora.biz/'

You also can tell googleappsauth where to go after successfull authentication, in case the redirect_url had not been set. LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL defaults to /.

LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL = '/admin'

To activate googleappsauth, set the appropriate Authentication backend and include a callback view.

settings.py:
AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS = ('googleappsauth.backends.GoogleAuthBackend',)

urls.py:
(r'^callback_googleappsauth/', 'googleappsauth.views.callback'),

Using a special middleware which is included in the package, you can block access to a compete site.

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
    'django.middleware.common.CommonMiddleware',
    'django.contrib.sessions.middleware.SessionMiddleware',
    'django.contrib.auth.middleware.AuthenticationMiddleware',
    'googleappsauth.middleware.GoogleAuthMiddleware',
)

In addition you can set AUTH_PROTECTED_AREAS to authenticate only access to certain parts of a site, e.g.

AUTH_PROTECTED_AREAS = ['/admin']
