If you are like me, you probably hate remembering a lot of passwords. But this habit forces us to reuse the same password on multiple sites, which again is a major lapse in security.
As an Edwiser Bridge user, you understand the significance of WordPress-Moodle integration already but the frequent back and forth you do between WordPress & Moodle still exists.
This is where Edwiser Bridge extensions come in, today we would be talking about one such Edwiser Bridge extension namely “Edwiser Bridge Single Sign On (SSO)”.
SSO does exactly what you think it does, it is uses the concept of “Single Sign On”. Similar to what you achieve on Google, You login to Gmail once and are able to access all other Google related products without relogin (such as YouTube or Blogger).
SSO for Edwiser follows the same principle and establishes this concept between WordPress and Moodle.

Through this post, we want to announce the Version 1.2 Update of Edwiser Bridge SSO, one which brings in a few more essential features and certain minor bug fixes.
What’s New in SSO 1.2?
We can summarize the entire list of updates into these 3 points:
- Simultaneous Login-Logout from WordPress and Moodle.
- Ability to add a redirect page upon Login/Logout from WordPress/Moodle.
- Minor bug fixes.
Simultaneously Login/Logout from WordPress and Moodle
This feature sums up the core of SSO. With SSO installed, You just login into either WordPress or Moodle with your credentials and then a session for your account automatically gets created on the other platform (i.e Moodle or WordPress).
This means you can directly access both your Dashboards with a single credential. The process is same if you want to logout, just logout of either WordPress or Moodle and the entire session gets cleared.
Although you do need to configure a secret key on both Moodle and WordPress in order for this feature to work.
Redirect Users to Custom URL After Login/Logout
After the 1.2 update, you can set a Custom URL where you can redirect a user after Login or Logout.
You can find this option added under the Edwiser Bridge > Settings > General tab.
Paste your custom URL in the given field (make sure to append http/https with the URL). You can even leave the field blank if you want the default redirection to take place.
Patched a Few Minor Bugs
SSO 1.2 update patched some minor bugs in the plugin along with a few other warnings and error messages that some users faced.
Other than the above said updates, We are constantly working on bringing new features to our existing range of extensions and also brainstorming for new ideas to implement on Edwiser Bridge.
