Add a new user via API


My forum discourse is integrated with my website using SSO, so all my users are actually at my website DB.

The question is, how can I add users from my website to the discourse forum by API? and how can I check if a user is already added?

Thank you

For the user to use Discourse, they need to be signed in.

With SSO a new account is created when they attempt to log in if one does not exist already, so why not just let it happen organically?

I assume you are using DiscourseConnect?:


I can’t just let it happen organically as users might use my website without visiting the forum. What I wanted is to leverage the newsletter and notifications feature of Discourse, my website is about virtual lab, where users spend time building things without the need to visit the forum…
