Marketing4WiFi Single Sign-On Developer Guide

Marketing4WiFi Single Sign-on allows trusted applications and third parties to authenticate Client Users into the M4W platform automatically, without the user having to re-authenticate.

Single Sign-on Workflow

Here’s how the process works.

1. The application requests an Auth URL by sending client’s username to the API Endpoint along with the Operator Marketing4WiFi API_TOKEN.

Request URL :


2. If the <API_TOKEN> and <CLIENT_USERNAME> matches, the M4W API Endpoint will return an Auto Auth URL to the application.

Response :

  "status": 200,
  "url": "https://<OPERATOR_DASHBOARD_HOST>/process/processLogin.php?username=<CLIENT_USERNAME>&timestamp=<TIMESTAMP>&hash=<SERVER_GENERATED_HASH>"

3. The application then redirects the user to the Auto Auth URL using their configured dashboard hostname. (url from the above JSON).

If you have a branded dashboard hostname and the response does not return the branded dashboard please contact support.

4. The user is authenticated and redirected to the Dashboard.
