Oauth2 authentication


Can I use Oauth2 authentication in RStudio Connect to authenticate against service providers rather than Google? (i.e. MS Azure AD B2C), or it's hardcoded to Google?

Hello! Thanks for asking! This is a fantastic question.

Unfortunately, RStudio Connect's OAuth2 interface uses a few Google-only workflows. I will definitely log your vote for a generic OAuth2 interface, though!

In the meantime, you can integrate with Microsoft Azure AD through SAML, which is simplified in Microsoft's offering here: https://azuremarketplace.microsoft.com/en-us/marketplace/apps/aad.rstudioconnect?tab=Overview

Described in Microsoft's guide here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/saas-apps/rstudio-connect-tutorial
