    Greetings! One of our testing servers just got the update to CPanel 54 and the new features are looking pretty fantastic. I have a quick question about one in particular - namely the new external authentication module. The documentation seems to indicate the ability to choose from a list of varying auth providers: Google, Facebook, etc. but at present only CpanelID and WHMCS are available within WHM. Will additional providers be added via a patch at a later date, or are there steps we need to do serverside to activate these additional providers.

    Hello :)

    Thank you for your interest in this feature. Additional examples that demonstrate other methods (e.g. Google, Facebook, Amazon) are available in the "/usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/Security/Authn/Provider/" directory with the .sample file extension. This is documented at:

    Guide to External Authentication - OpenID Connect - Software Development Kit - cPanel Documentation

    For example, if you copy "Google.pm.sample" to "Google.pm", Google becomes an available option and a link to further instructions from Google is displayed:

    OpenID Connect

    Note that cPanel version 56 will display these providers by default.

    Thank you.

    Hello! I'm glad to hear you're enjoying the new features.

    In 11.54, we supplied documentation here on how to create and where to install your own modules. We've also included the location of some sample modules we've provided for reference in that same document.

    For quick reference, custom modules go here:
    /var/cpanel/perl/Cpanel/Security/Authn/Provider/

    Sample provider modules are here:
    /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/Security/Authn/Provider/*.pm.sample

    I hope that helps!
