Enabling the Third Party Authentication Feature

Hello,
I am completely new at this. According to this link I have to edit the edx/app/edxapp/lms.yml file. However, when I type the command vim edx/app/edxapp/lms.yml I get a completely blank file and when I try to save the file it throws an error.
“edx/app/edxapp/lms.yml” E212: Can’t open file for writing
Am I doing it wrong?

Hi @tanvir, welcome to the community!!

Config files are protected. You can edit them with sudo vim <filename>.

Thanks for the quick reply @andres. I tried to edit it using sudo vim edx/app/edxapp/lms.yml but it still shows the same error. Then I tried the command :w !sudo tee % > /dev/null which I got from this link but it just said that tee: edx/app/edxapp/lms.yml: No such file or directory. So my question is something wrong with the path. I got the path from their documentation so I don’t know what I am doing wrong.

Hi @tanvir. If you’re using tutor to run your Open edX platform, then it may be easier to use a simple tutor plugin to modify the lms.yml file. Here is a tutorial for setting up a new yaml plugin. You can see how someone else has configured their Third Party Auth in this comment.
