Hello Discourse Support Community,
I hope this message finds you well. We’re currently in the process of refining our authentication workflow on Discourse and would appreciate your insights on a specific use case.
Our goal is to have moderators log in using traditional username/password credentials, while students should exclusively use Single Sign-On (SSO) via Discourse Connect. We’ve already configured Discourse Connect successfully for SSO, but we’re seeking advice on how to implement and manage this dual authentication setup.
Here are some specific questions we have:
- Enabling Dual Authentication:
- Is it possible to allow traditional username/password login for certain user groups (like moderators) while having SSO for others?
- Managing Moderator Access:
- How can we manually create and manage moderator accounts with unique credentials separate from the SSO system?
- Communication with Users:
- Are there best practices for communicating login instructions to moderators to ensure a smooth onboarding process?
Any guidance, best practices, or examples from the community would be highly appreciated. We value your expertise and look forward to your insights.
Thank you in advance for your support!
