Is it possible to authenticate a Wordpress login via Discourse?

Hi everyone,

I am currently working on an app that requires data to be pulled from both a Woocommerce website as well as Discourse. As a result, I need some way, if possible, to be able to have a single sign in that will provide me with the users Wordpress information, which I can currently get from a plugin hooked up to the client’s Wordpress website as well as user discourse information. I was told that Discourse had something that could potentially help with that, but I’m not really sure where to find it. Is this possible and, if so, any advice?

Use the search, Luke.

@Thomas_Bergen Yep, definitely possible. We use Wordpress as the SSO agent for our entire Community and between the plug-in mentioned above and Discourse’s incredible API we’ve had no problems, it’s worked very well.
