Single Sign-On with Discourse


How to sign-on into Mastodon from Discourse accounts?

Discourse, the software powering this board, has a very nice way of filtering users based on their participation, providing an effective anti-spam solution. It can be used as an identity server where existing users on Discourse could automagically log in to a Mastodon instance.

But at this point there seems to be no actual plugin support to do this. Did you setup such an SSO system from your Discourse instance to your Mastodon service? Do you know how to do it? Please share your information here, and let’s document it properly, from setup to troubleshooting!


I don’t think it is possible (as of Release v2.2.0rc1 · tootsuite/mastodon · GitHub) to use external authentication providers for Mastodon.
