Social Login

With the Social Login extension, both you and your customers can log in to Plesk with Google, GitHub, or Facebook accounts. This does not take away the ability to log in with the Plesk username and password.

The following Plesk users can log in to Plesk via Social Login:

  • Administrators
  • Resellers
  • Customers
  • Additional users (for example, application user, webmaster, and so on)

If the email address in your Plesk profile matches a Google, GitHub, or Facebook account email, you can log in to Plesk with this account right away.

To log in to Plesk with a social network account:

  1. Make sure that the Social Login extension is installed. Starting with Plesk Onyx 17.8, the extension is installed by default.
  2. Click the icon of the social network you want to use to log in to Plesk (the social network account's email address must match the email address in your Plesk profile).

    all

  3. You will be asked to click a link to send the social account sign-in data to Plesk. To avoid having to click the link in the future, select the “Trust … for 365 days and do not show this dialog” checkbox before clicking the link.

If the email address of the Google, GitHub, or Facebook account you want to use to log in to Plesk does not match the email address in your Plesk profile, you need to first link the social network account to your Plesk account.

To link a social network account to Plesk:

  1. Make sure that the Social Login extension is installed. Starting with Plesk Onyx 17.8, the extension is installed by default.
  2. Go to Profile & Preferences.
  3. Click the icon corresponding to the social network account you want to use to log in to Plesk. Grey icons mark the social networks that are not yet linked to your Plesk account and cannot be used to log in to Plesk.

    Repeat the steps 2-3 if you want to link more than one social network account.

  6. Click OK.

Now you can log in to Plesk with the social network account you have linked.

Hiding Icons of Social Networks

By default, if the Social Login extension is installed, the icons corresponding to all three social networks (Google, GitHub, and Facebook) are displayed on the Plesk login screen. You can disable logging in to Plesk with one or more social networks and remove the corresponding icons from the Plesk login screen. To do so, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

[ext-social-login]
google.enabled = off
facebook.enabled = off
github.enabled = off

For example, to make only the GitHub icon visible, add the following lines to panel.ini:

[ext-social-login]
google.enabled = off
facebook.enabled = off
