Just wondering if this extension makes it possible to use Google Apps for Education SSO with Joomla 3.3. If so, will it generate the key files? Create Joomla users from the Google Apps for Education users? Google Apps for Education users are not granted access to Google+.
No, unfortunately we do not support Google Apps SSO at this time. It's something we're considering in the future, but have had very few requests for it. Right now, we only support Google (standard Google, Gmail, etc) and Google+ accounts.
We do appreciate letting us know what you're looking for as it helps us plan out our future roadmap.
Thanks for the quick reply. I've been using Joomla for a few years now and have found myself searching every few months for an extension that would enable SSO for Google Apps for Education and usually have very little success. In 2.5 I found one extension that was hardly maintained and unreliable at best. After many hours scouring forums, I know I'm not the only person looking for an extension with this capability. As an early adopter, I know some things I look for won't be available yet. However, I know of another charter school as well as a district within the same county I'm in that use Joomla for their websites and they're both migrating to Google Apps this year. I hope the demand for this does increase to make it viable to add because I would gladly pay for a reliable extension that just enables SSO for Google Apps for Education.
Thanks for the feedback in what you're looking for. It really does help guide our future roadmap. Google Apps is growing and something we can definitely see the value in. Right now, JFBConnect is working on adding a few more social networks and rounding out the features we have. After thats done, hopefully in the 6.2 release in a few months, I can see us investigating Google Apps integration further.
Unfortunately, that does mean I don't have anything I can provide for you now. We do hope you'll keep an eye on our blog and stay up to date with our features. We'll definitely trumpet Google Apps integration when it becomes available.
