Remove Facebook as login option


(dosch) #1

Hey,

What happens to the users that depend on FB if I remove it as an option to login to my discourse forum?

I’d like to remove dependency on external authenticators, starting with FB.

Thnx for the help!

They would need to generate/reset a password using the email address in their facebook account. once they have a new password to log in with, they can continue as a regular user.

Is there a way to check how many people use FB as there authenticator and maybe even a way to send these people a message with these instructions?

Best way would be to use the Data Explorer plugin with a custom SQL query.

A good query to do would be WHERE user.email ILIKE '%facebook.com' or whatever the auto generated email address ends with…

Facebook oAuth returns user’s actual email address that they used to create facebook account to.

I think the Query needs to search for oAuth provider?
