According to the https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B01KVGYJ22?qid=1510731410983&sr=0-...,

Vanilla turnkey has the below out of the box features.

  • Vanilla configurations:
    • Installed from upstream source code to /var/www/vanilla
  • SSL support out of the box.
  • Adminer administration frontend for MySQL (listening on port 12322 - uses SSL).
  • Postfix MTA (bound to localhost) to allow sending of email (e.g., password recovery).
  • Webmin modules for configuring Apache2, PHP, MySQL and Postfix.

We going to deploy web application which should support SSO with vanilla. In terms of SSO, is "Vanilla by turnkey" having easy configurations? or do we need add required vanilla plugins externally and configure it as normally.

I just deleted your other post in the "general" section as it's probably best to just have one thread regarding this. Also, I just responded to a support request pretty much relating to this exact issue so I'm pretty sure that it was you (or someone associated with you). Regardless, I'll repost (with minor adjustment) what I just wrote so others can see the info.

The TurnKey Linux Vanilla appliance has the default Vanilla forums "core" installed, configured and ready to use. It does not include any additional plugins, SSO or otherwise. So you would still need to install and configure that yourself.

Please note that we also have a number of alternate builds, so if you wish to test our appliance with no commitment or cost, you can download and install to a disposable VM for initial testing (e.g. install the OVA build to VirtualBox). You will find the relevant downloads on the Vanilla appliance page. You can then test installation and configuration to your requirements. If you get it all set up and working as you desire, then you can use TKLBAM (TurnKey's built in data backup and migration tool) to migrate your data from the local VM to a new AWS instance.

A quick google bought up a number of options for SSOon Vanilla, all noted on the Vanilla SSO docs page. AFAIK, there should be no reason why any of those options shouldn't "just work" on the TurnKey Vanilla appliance. Please fee free to post if you hit any issues and I'll provide "best effort" support for you. I aim to respond to new forum posts at least once per day, although when I'm super busy, that can stretch out to a couple of times per week. Please feel free to bump any threads you post there if you do not get a timely response.

Good luck! :)
