Do we actually use django-social auth plugin to allow 3rd party authentication on Horizon ? If it is the case, can someone please explain the steps involved briefly ? And I am planning to use a 3rd party that uses SAML authentication protocol. Please advise

Thank you

Rather than integrate a third-party authentication service into Horizon, I think you should look at integrating it with Keystone. This is because Horizon uses the login credentials for much more than simply allowing access to the database.

I believe SAML support in Keystone is still in progress.

I have the same question but for a different 3rd party client. I am using 'pisa' for PDF output.

Since this is a 3rd party module, where should it be placed in horizon?
