Current MySQL database of users


(Cedric Meirsman) #1

Hello,

Currently we have a MySQL database (server) containing the user names and passwords encrypted in whirlpool.
Is there a possibility to integrate with Discourse? So that users can directly log in and if necessary further data deposits.

Thanks in advance!

I believe that @michaeld has a login transition plugin?

Yes, but you would need to build whirlpool support in GitHub - discoursehosting/discourse-migratepassword: Support migrated password hashes and worse: create the users in advance.

Another solution would be to set up a simple SSO implementation around the MySQL database, and delegate authorization to it.
