Important Ecosystem Guidelines
These guidelines must be followed by all clients in order for us to work towards a streamlined and efficient login experience to all users. These guidelines will also help us reach a higher share of logged in users throughout the ecosystem of products and services that has implemented SPiD. Everybody wins!
- Ability to perform cross-site autologin on returning visitors
- Answers if user need to accept your TOS or not
- Helps clients automatically retrieve tokens for API access for logged in users
- Tells client when a user is logged out centrally and/or if the logged in user has changed in SPiD
- The SDK will be actively maintained by SPiD together with the community
- You may contribute to it on Github
Check that your implementation follows the login flow
- This flow documents every state a user visiting your site might have
- It will improve the stability of your implementation and the user experience of your users
Make sure that when user logs out, you trigger a logout from SPiD
- Respect the user’s choice when they choose to log out
- Consistency in the expected behaviour of a logout button/link
- To avoid confusing people and to protect personal security, we enforce this logout behavior
