Merging users from different forums

Is this possible? I am not technical, I’m just shopping for forum software for my company. I have my main site and I want to install discourse in and I would like to add another totally separate subject discourse forum at What I would like is to bridge the users of both forums so that they only register once and use both forums. Is it doable?

You can use SSO for this. You either need to set up an external identity provider, or use one install as the provider for the other (which may or may not make sense, depending on your use case).

Note that your users will still have separate profiles on both forums.


Yep… turn on sso logins on forum2, sso provider on forum1, give them the same secret, the SSO URL for forum2 is forum1/session/sso_provider

Great! Thank you fellas.
