Signing in with Google and LinkedIn - survey and implementation in the online audit system

Just over a month ago, we initiated a LinkedIn survey, in which we asked you "Which quick login method would you use to sign in to the COMPANY application?". Here, I would like to thank everyone who took part in the poll or added a comment. The word "COMPANY" was written in capital letters intentionally to make it clear that we are not talking about logging into services like Airbnb or Uber, but authorization in corporate software.

There were 4 options in the survey: Google, LinkedIn, Facebook and Others. We deliberately did not add the Windows Domain Controller or LDAP options because they are a different class of systems. We meant strictly the commonly used web-based OAuth2 mechanisms. The results are as follows:

The results of your vote are somewhat surprising. Of course, it's not about Google being the leader, as we all expected. However we were surprised how much advantage Google gained over competitors, obtaining as much as 83% of the votes. Other options got 1 vote each, which translates into 6% (sad face :-).

Implementation in the online audit system

The aim of the survey was to find out about the preferences of users of corporate online systems, including enterprise management and audit systems such as Action Audit, in terms of authorization through an account they have on platforms such as Google, Facebook or LinkedIn.

Based on our own experience and the survey results, we decided to launch signing in integrated with Google (naturally) and LinkedIn (because many specialists have accounts in this service). In case of user interest, we would also consider integrating with Facebook.

The functionality of the internal audits platform that was described above has already passed the internal testing phase and it will be launched with the next release, which is planned for CW11.
