Can I use Discourse as an user account manager?


(Khoa Nguyen) #1

I want to build an app with PHP and use Discourse as an user account manager. But afer search through Meta. I only see solution for the other way. Use another app to managing Discourse user.

Not really documented that well but you can enable sso provider in site settings and have your Discourse instance implement the other end of an SSO protocol.

Can you please give me an example? How to know if a user logined to Discourse?

Its the SSO protocol in reverse, works exactly the same way as SSO
