FusionAuth

FusionAuth Review: The most fully-featured SSO solution for the price

Q: What did you like most about FusionAuth?

  • The installation and maintenance process is straightforward, especially that they’ve provided a Helm chart that can be deployed directly to a Kubernetes cluster. When I first installed it, v1.15.8 required Elasticsearch. But in v1.16.0 and newer, Elasticsearch is optional so it’s much easier to get started especially for those with less than 10,000 users.
  • The functionality is complete. It’s amazing how FusionAuth can bundle so many functionality in one software bundle AND also make it relatively easy to install. General SSO, OpenID Connect, SAML, 2FA: all the basics are covered, and more.
  • Multi-tenant. This is unique with FusionAuth: with a single FusionAuth instance you can service SSO multiple groups or even multiple companies. This can dramatically reduce cost if you’re need to share resources. Or perhaps you need separate tenants for staging and development environments, you’re not required to buy a separate license for this.
  • Free license available
  • Support is good even without an enterprise contact (FusionAuth Forum & GitHub)

Q: What did you like least about FusionAuth?

  • MariaDB isn’t yet officially supported. It’s a minor quibble and is probably irrelevant to most people, but I do wish FusionAuth would have supported this. It’s actually possible to run FusionAuth with MariaDB, just that you’ll need to be prepared to potential (current and future) issues, that you don’t have to worry if you use PostgreSQL or MySQL.
  • Not open source. Again this is a minor quibble. I’d prefer if FusionAuth open sources or even made “source-available” the core parts of FusionAuth. It’d make problems much easier to debug especially if there are users willing to help debugging. For businesses getting a support contract directly from FusionAuth it’s probably not an issue.

Q: Describe your overall experience with FusionAuth?

FusionAuth has been really good and from my first experience with v1.15.8, then I upgraded twice to v1.16 then v1.17, they keep adding more features and convenience like making Elasticsearch optional. (I’m still using Elasticsearch though because I’m still migrating from previous identity provider and we have 200,000+ users to migrate, most of them are free users.) The number of free users we have is making it not cost-wise to use other identity provider products.

I have successfully integrated FusionAuth with three WordPress instances and a Rocket.Chat instance. I’m excited to complete the migration and use FusionAuth with our own custom apps.

I’m also doing consulting with social enterprises / nonprofits and when they need a login/SSO solution for their constituents/donors/volunteers, I can wholeheartedly recommend FusionAuth for them.

Q: Did you switch from another product? What product did you switch from? Why did you make the switch?

Yes, I switched from Firebase / Google Cloud Identity Platform.

  • Firebase / Google Cloud Identity Platform did not support either OpenID Connect nor being a SAML Identity Provider, that we need to reliably integrate with other services such as WordPress, Rocket.Chat, and future software than we may use.
  • Pricing per MAU (especially when using an external SAML) is prohibitive because most of our users are free users, and we don’t “sell” our users, so ARPU on these users is basically zero.

Q: While purchasing FusionAuth, what alternative product(s) were considered?

  • Gluu
  • Firebase Authentication / Google Cloud Identity Platform
  • ORY/Hydra
  • Amazon Cognito
  • Keycloak
  • FusionIAM / LemonLDAP::NG
  • Okta
  • JumpCloud
  • OneLogin
  • Auth0

Q: Why did you choose FusionAuth over these alternative product(s)?

  • Free license available. FusionAuth is not open source, but startups can either deploy FusionAuth at their own server with the free license, or host with FusionAuth’s cloud with reasonable pricing (which is actually cheaper than paying your own hosting and sysadmin team to manage). The number of users you can serve is only limited by system capacity. The price/value at this stage beats all competitors I’ve reviewed. When your needs grow, you can contact FusionAuth to a get a support plan tailored to your organization. So the pricing scales very well.
  • Support is good even without an enterprise contract (FusionAuth Forum & GitHub). FusionAuth technical team were willing to help diagnose my problem even I wasn’t a paying enterprise customer. If you’re planning to get a support contract, I’d say you’ll get even better support.

Installing in Kubernetes / MicroK8s using Helm Chart

There is issue #11 with FusionAuth Helm Chart that making installation not (yet) straightforward. So it is recommended to install PostgreSQL and Elasticsearch separately. Commands below assume MicroK8s, as PostgreSQL and Elasticsearch can use shared infrastructure on production.

Install in MicroK8s. Source: https://github.com/FusionAuth/charts

MariaDB

As Lovia uses MariaDB for other apps (WordPress, ERPNext), it’s also used for FusionAuth. Warning: MariaDB is not (yet?) officially supported #327, #367.

sudo microk8s helm3 repo add bitnami https://charts.bitnami.com/bitnami
sudo microk8s helm3 install mariadb bitnami/mariadb

Get the root password:

ROOT_PASSWORD=$(sudo microk8s kubectl get secret --namespace default mariadb -o jsonpath="{.data.mariadb-root-password}" | base64 --decode)

Install MariaDB client: (as an alternative, you can also run a “mariadb-client” pod, see: helm get notes mariadb)

sudo apt-get install mariadb-client

Port-forward and connect:

sudo microk8s kubectl port-forward svc/mariadb 3306 &
mysql -h 127.0.0.1 -uroot -p"$ROOT_PASSWORD" mysql

Create user and database: (specific GRANT is to make it compatible with AWS RDS MariaDB)

CREATE USER fusionauth@'%' IDENTIFIED BY '*';
CREATE DATABASE fusionauth CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci;
GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, REFERENCES, INDEX, ALTER, CREATE TEMPORARY TABLES, LOCK TABLES, EXECUTE, CREATE VIEW, SHOW VIEW, CREATE ROUTINE, ALTER ROUTINE, EVENT, TRIGGER ON fusionauth.* TO fusionauth@'%';
FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

Note: FusionAuth uses utf8mb4 character set but with utf8mb4_bin collation.

PostgreSQL

Note: Lovia uses MariaDB for FusionAuth. This section is for informative purposes only.

https://github.com/bitnami/charts/tree/master/bitnami/postgresql

sudo microk8s helm3 repo add bitnami https://charts.bitnami.com/bitnami
sudo microk8s helm3 install postgresql bitnami/postgresql

Example output:

ceefour@amanah:~$ sudo microk8s helm3 install postgresql bitnami/postgresql
NAME: postgresql
LAST DEPLOYED: Thu Apr 16 23:54:26 2020
NAMESPACE: default
STATUS: deployed
REVISION: 1
TEST SUITE: None
NOTES:
** Please be patient while the chart is being deployed **

PostgreSQL can be accessed via port 5432 on the following DNS name from within your cluster:

    postgresql.default.svc.cluster.local - Read/Write connection

To get the password for "postgres" run:

    export POSTGRES_PASSWORD=$(kubectl get secret --namespace default postgresql -o jsonpath="{.data.postgresql-password}" | base64 --decode)

To connect to your database run the following command:

    kubectl run postgresql-client --rm --tty -i --restart='Never' --namespace default --image docker.io/bitnami/postgresql:11.7.0-debian-10-r71 --env="PGPASSWORD=$POSTGRES_PASSWORD" --command -- psql --host postgresql -U postgres -d postgres -p 5432



To connect to your database from outside the cluster execute the following commands:

    kubectl port-forward --namespace default svc/postgresql 5432:5432 &
    PGPASSWORD="$POSTGRES_PASSWORD" psql --host 127.0.0.1 -U postgres -d postgres -p 5432

Create user and database: (connect first using Helm release’s notes above)

CREATE USER fusionauth PASSWORD '*';
CREATE DATABASE fusionauth
    WITH OWNER fusionauth
    ENCODING 'UTF8'
    LC_COLLATE = 'en_US.UTF-8'
    LC_CTYPE = 'en_US.UTF-8'
    TEMPLATE template0;

Elasticsearch 6.x

Elastic Cloud’s Kubernetes Operator requires Support subscription. An alternative is Bitnami’s elasticsearch chart. Note: FusionAuth does not yet support Elasticsearch 7, so we provision Elasticsearch 6.x in the mean time specifically for FusionAuth.

sudo microk8s helm3 repo add bitnami https://charts.bitnami.com/bitnami
sudo microk8s helm3 install elasticsearch6 bitnami/elasticsearch --set image.tag=6,coordinating.replicas=1,master.replicas=1,master.persistence.size=1Gi,data.replicas=1,data.persistence.size=1Gi,data.resources.requests.cpu=25m,data.resources.requests.memory=384Mi

Sample output:

ceefour@amanah:~$ sudo microk8s helm3 install elasticsearch bitnami/elasticsearch

NOTES:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 WARNING

    Elasticsearch requires some changes in the kernel of the host machine to
    work as expected. If those values are not set in the underlying operating
    system, the ES containers fail to boot with ERROR messages.

    More information about these requirements can be found in the links below:

      https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/file-descriptors.html
      https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/vm-max-map-count.html

    This chart uses a privileged initContainer to change those settings in the Kernel
    by running: sysctl -w vm.max_map_count=262144 && sysctl -w fs.file-max=65536

** Please be patient while the chart is being deployed **

  Elasticsearch can be accessed within the cluster on port 9200 at elasticsearch-elasticsearch-coordinating-only.default.svc.cluster.local

  To access from outside the cluster execute the following commands:

    kubectl port-forward --namespace default svc/elasticsearch-elasticsearch-coordinating-only 9200:9200 &
    curl http://127.0.0.1:9200/

Note about vm.max_map_count kernel setting (not needed when using elasticsearch Helm Chart)

ElasticSearch needs more vm.max_map_count, otherwise you’ll get:

search_1 | [1]: max virtual memory areas vm.max_map_count [65530] is too low, increase to at least [262144]

Ansible: (note: when using Bitnami’s Elasticsearch Helm chart, the required kernel values will be set accordingly)

---
- name: Setup Linux for Elasticsearch in Docker
  hosts: all
  become: yes
  tasks:
    - name: Increase vm.max_map_count for Elasticsearch
      sysctl:

NOTES:
1. Get the application URL by running these commands:
  export POD_NAME=$(kubectl get pods --namespace default -l "app.kubernetes.io/name=fusionauth,app.kubernetes.io/instance=fusionauth" -o jsonpath="{.items[0].metadata.name}")
  echo "Visit http://127.0.0.1:8080 to use your application"
  kubectl port-forward $POD_NAME 8080:80

Port forward the service and use port 9011:

kubectl port-forward svc/fusionauth 9011:9011

It will enter Maintenance Mode and you’ll need to enter MariaDB root user, root password, and the fusionauth MariaDB user’s password.

HTTPS/SSL

Prerequisities: CNAME configured, cert-manager helm chart, production_issuer, and nginx ingress helm chart properly configured. Then you can apply fusionauth-ingress.yaml:

apiVersion: networking.k8s.io/v1beta1
kind: Ingress
metadata:
  name: fusionauth-ingress
  annotations:
    kubernetes.io/ingress.class: nginx
    cert-manager.io/cluster-issuer: letsencrypt-prod
spec:
  # REQUIRES helm cert-manager
  tls:
    - hosts:
        - fusionauth.lovia.life
      secretName: fusionauth-tls
  rules:
    - host: fusionauth.lovia.life
      http:
        paths:
          - backend:
              serviceName: fusionauth
              servicePort: 9011

It will take some time before the TLS certificate is generated:

kubectl describe certificate fusionauth-tls

System/Default Settings

Email:

  1. Configure SMTP (use SES) in Tenants > Default > Email. Use port 587 instead of 25 (confirmed to work in DigitalOcean Kubernetes).
  2. Configure Email Templates: From Email, From Name, HTML (URL & signature), Text (URL & signature)

Settings:

  1. System > Reports > Report timezone

FusionAuth Setup Wizard

After installing FusionAuth + Elasticsearch + PostgreSQL/MySQL (MariaDB is not (yet?) officially supported #327, #367) you’ll be presented with FusionAuth Setup Wizard.

FusionAuth provides the following fields by default. FusionAuth provides two ways for custom fields: user.data and registration.data. Either email or username is required. User ID is automatically generated by FusionAuth and is always a UUID.

Email/SMTP

SMTP must be set up so FusionAuth can send emails.

See: https://fusionauth.io/docs/v1/tech/email-templates/configure-email
