Before the integration, we need to deploy Casdoor locally.

Then, we can quickly implement a Casdoor-based login page in our own app by following these steps.

  1. Create a new Casdoor application or use an existing one.
  2. Add a redirect URL: http://CASDOOR_HOSTNAME/loginCasdoor Application Setting

Now that you have the application, you need to create a user and assign a role.

Go to the "Users" page and click on "Add user" in the top right corner. This will open a new page where you can add the new user.

Save the user after adding a username and selecting the organization "Thingsboard" (other details are optional).

Next, you need to set up a password for the user. You can do this by clicking on "Manage your password".

Choose a password for the user and confirm it.
