Over the last view weeks we have gotten a lot of questions about how to upgrade the old Wizkunde WebSSO extension now that Wizkunde is no longer existing. We wanted to reach out to you and give you an update and provide you the best way to receive the new GoGento version for your Magento platform.

 

Backwards compatibility with the Wizkunde WebSSO extension

The GoGento extension has been rewritten from the ground up and therefor its not a matter of replacing your old extension with the new one. The old extension was very dynamic and allowed customers to create a very generic SSO connection suitable for most identity providers with either SAML2 or OAuth2 as its protocol.

This solution caused a lot of support cases and often required a lot of help from us to get the SSO connection going, because it was quite a technical process.

We wanted to strongly simplify the way the integration was setup and still make it possible to customize the way the integration works without a lot of work. In this way we can both reduce the incoming support as simplify the codebase so that it does exactly what you need it to do without having to be a developer.

 

Choosing solution over the technical details

In the past customers had to know about the protocols used and such. However in the new situation, we got it all sorted for you. Our extension uses the right protocol and if possible, we choose the protocol thats available to your Identity Provider with the most features aswell as those which does not cause you to pay extra money on the identity provider side to get it working.

Therefor, we no longer offer our SSO extension in the way of a "SAML2" integration or a "OAuth2" integration, but provide a working, optimized end-solution.

 

Isnt this restricting the extension too much?

Definitely not because the new extension is just as expandable as the old extension, but in
