REST API to register new users

Post by zaphod99 on October 19th 2015, 8:10 pm

We have a club membership system and when we get a new member,
currently they have to register themselves on the forum as well using the standard "Register" link.
The user experience is not great, it feels like they have to sign up twice, once as a club member, once again to use the forum.

We'd like a REST API in to the forum so our back-end can automatically create a forum user and email them their password.
We know their name and email already; They signed up to our terms already; We could add a field to choose a forum name,
or we could use their real name which we know already; We will generate a first initial password which they can change
later. Technically all the information is there already, signing up programatically would already be possible except for the
image CAPTCHA code.

A programmatic REST API to do this could be allowed safely without the captcha if an authorization key were generated on the forumotion
admin console and had to be provided when making calls (much like twitter).

This would be very useful to us and others I believe; What is the chance of getting it implemented?

I believe this would not be possible, unless Forumotion has a relationship with whatever site you want to use, like Facebook (Facebook Connect).
