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.


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

System Message: WARNING/2 (<string>, line 16)

Literal block expected; none found.

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/'

System Message: WARNING/2 (<string>, line 16); backlink

Inline emphasis start-string without end-string.

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 /.

System Message: WARNING/2 (<string>, line 26)

Literal block expected; none found.


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

System Message: WARNING/2 (<string>, line 31)

Literal block expected; none found.

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.

System Message: WARNING/2 (<string>, line 41)

Literal block expected; none found.

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.

System Message: WARNING/2 (<string>, line 51)

Literal block expected; none found.
