osTicket v1.17 RC Available
Today is the day everyone’s been waiting for! Today we are releasing the highly coveted functionality for Oauth2/Modern Email Authentication Support!
This is a release candidate, and it should not be used in production. It should only be used for testing purposes.
In order to test external authorization, you must use the OAuth2 Plugin. Please note that this release candidate requires PHP 8.0.x and should only be used for testing OAuth functionality.
Be on the lookout for documentation as well as a tutorial on how to set everything up. We have focused our testing on using OAuth with Outlook and Gmail.
