I would like to sync profile information like the bio, and website URL from my website to the discourse user forum. Users are currently all logging in via an SSO endpoint on the main website. Is there any way to update the discourse user profile via an API call?
I have tried doing something like this, unsuccessfully:
require 'single_sign_on' class DiscourseSsoController < ApplicationController before_filter :authenticate_user! # ensures user must login def sso secret = ENV["DISCUSSIONS_SSO_KEY"] sso = SingleSignOn.parse(request.query_string, secret) sso.email = current_user.email # from devise sso.name = current_user.name # this is a custom method on the User class sso.username = current_user.name # from devise sso.external_id = current_user.id # from devise sso.sso_secret = secret sso.avatar_url = current_user.image_url sso.bio = current_user.bio sso.custom_fields["profile_url"] = SOME_URL redirect_to sso.to_url(ENV["DISCUSSIONS_SSO_LOGIN_PATH"]) end end
