Emails & SMS

vCita sends users emails & SMS with links back to the vCita application. These emails & SMS are related to scheduling appointments etc. (meeting requests, meeting reminders, new lead from contact form etc.). If the user is currently logged in to vCita they will not have issues clicking on the link and arriving at the correct destination. However, if the user is not logged in then normally vCita would expect the user to enter their email and password to log-in.

In this case, you have to following the next steps:

Step 1

curl --location --request LINK 'http://Partner.com/vcita/sso_login?redirect_to=https://Partner.admin.com/app/events/event_uid?action=add_clients&email_token=aaabbbccc111222&from_email=true&flow=Email_Action&flow_origin=event_scheduled&flow_action=add_clients'

Partner will initially provide to vCita:

  • A route to redirect to for these users that will handle the SSO login process

The SSO process will consist of:

  • Users that are not logged in that arrive at the Partner white label domain will be redirected back to a URL to be provided by Partner. vCita will add the original URL of the request as a parameter.

Step 2

curl --location --request LINK 'https://api.vcita.com/v1/partners/sso/login?business_uid=xxxzzz111&sso_token=aaabbbccc111222&redirect_to=https://Partner.admin.com/app/events/event_uid?action=add_clients&email_token=aaabbbccc111222&from_email=true&flow=Email_Action&flow_origin=event_scheduled&flow_action=add_clients'

Partner will use the steps outlined in to generate an SSO login path and will add the original URL as a parameter. Partner will then redirect the user to that path.

vCita will log the user in and redirect them to the original URL requested
