Cloud CMS provides integrated authentication and single-sign-on (SSO) with GitHub.

This page describes the authentication provider available for the Cloud CMS Application Server that enables your mobile or web applications as well as the Cloud CMS user interface or API to authenticate against GitHub.

For more information on Authentication within the App Server, see App Server Authentication / SSO.

GitHub API Keys

You will need to configure a GitHub application and have the following information available:

  • clientID - the GitHub App ID
  • clientSecret - the GitHub App secret


Here is a simple configuration where we provide our API Keys and fallback on the defaults for everything else.

"auth": {
    "providers": {
        "myProvider": {
            "type": "twitter",
            "config": {
                "clientID": "{GitHub App ID}",
                "clientSecret": "{GitHub App Secret}"
