Possible for Single-Sign-On / remote-user create?

Post by jeremym on February 6th 2014, 6:40 pm

So my forums are for customers only.

We have a backend system where they already have a username and password to get to customer files.

I'd like to be able to:

1. When someone becomes a customer, automatically create a new forum account for them.
2. When they sign onto the backend system, have a link to "Log on to the forum" and their credentials are simply passed and they log on to the forum.

Is that possible via any http post or API?

Do let me know. Thanks.

They will have to register to create an account on a forum hosted by Forumotion.

I'm pretty sure that technically would be possible by sending the data using a PHP script on your hosted server?

I don't actually know how you'd physically go about writing it. I've only looked at PHP a bit and that was a while ago. I think you'd maybe be able to do that though.

What's the situation with your forum just now though? Do you have a lot of members/posts that you need to keep? If not then you'd probably be better just installing a phpbb3 forum on your own server and just use the central login for everything on there?
