Single Sign-On (SSO)


Single Sign-On is commonly asked for by clients who already have an existing platform for their marketplace, and simply want to extend it to Arcadier’s marketplaces for better User Experience.

To implement SSO, Arcadier has an SSO API. This API takes an external User ID from an external platform, to create a new account for that user on your Arcadier marketplace, by creating a new Arcadier User ID, an access token for API authentication, and an SSO code for maintaining the user’s session on the front-end.

Once the user is created, if the SSO API is used again for the same user, the API will recognise that this user has attempted SSO before and fetch the ID and token to allow them to seamlessly login to Arcadier again.
