I want to give certain admin user to ability to login using a direct link. The main admin will send a link in a email to sub admin users. The sub users will click on the link and they will directly login (without entering the Username and Password) on some page.

Is there a way to do this in Magento 2 or do i need something to do this feature?

Solution 1


It is indeed not possible to pass the username and password via query parameters in standard HTTP auth.

  • Instead, you use a special URL format, like this: http://username:password@example.com/
  • this sends the credentials in the standard HTTP "Authorization" header.

It's possible that whoever you were speaking to was thinking of a custom module or code that looked at the query parameters and verified the credentials. This isn't standard HTTP auth, though, it's an application-specific thing.

NOTE : http://username:password@example.com will works for FireFox, Chrome, Safari BUT not for IE.


Solution 2


Passing authentication parameters in query string

When using OAuth or other authentication services you can often also send your access token in a query string instead of in an authorization header, so something like:

GET

https://www.example.com/api/v1/users/1?access_token=1234567890abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCD

NOTE : Magento provide OAuth token, so you can achieve it by this way.
