We are investigating using Discourse as a forum section for our website. Our existing app is a Play 2.5 application with it’s own login setup and a JWT authenticator. Our goal is to implement some form of single-sign-on setup where users will be redirected (from Discourse) to our Play app to authenticate, the JWT token is created and sent back (via redirect) to Discourse for use in validating subsequent actions.
I found both GitHub - discourse/discourse-omniauth-jwt: An OmniAuth strategy that uses JSON Web Token for Single Sign-On and GitHub - discourse/discourse-jwt: Discourse Auth support for JSON Web Tokens (JWT) but am unsure if they will support what we are looking for or how to integrate them (I am very new to Discourse). Is there a similar alternative (with JWT) that I am unaware of?
