Although OAuth2 is the most recommended way of authenticating your members to your community, JWT SSO is the easiest way if your website does not support OAuth2.

You should be able to implement it by adding a few lines of code to your website or product. In this method, you'll sign a JSON Web Token (JWT) with User's information using a private key. Then the generated token should be passed as jwt in the query string to Tribe.

To generate the JWT token, first you need to get your Single Sign-On private key. Login to your community as an Admin. In the Admin Panel under Apps, install the "JWT SSO" app and you should find the Single Sign-On private key there.

"Is it complicated to enable JWT SSO? Not really, we already did the research for you so all you have to do is to follow our step by step guide."

For the complete documentation on how to enable this to your community, kindly head on to our Developers portal.
