Sign in to Discourse using ORCID

Hi all!
We’re evaluating discourse as a replacement to the features of Moodle that we use (discussion forums in particular).
One of the questions our evaluation team has is whether or not we can add support for members to login using their ORCID info?
Per ORCID, it seems possible to add this integration. In looking at the following link, do you think this would be feasible with Discourse? Integration point: Sign in using ORCID credentials | ORCID Members
Primarily I’m interested in learning if it’s possible, and what the LOE would be.
Many thanks in advance!!

Try to use our OAuth plugin with it: GitHub - discourse/discourse-oauth2-basic: A basic OAuth2 plugin for use with Discourse

Another option, which might involve less manual configuration, is the discourse-openid-connect plugin

It looks like ORCID has support for openid-connect: https://sandbox.orcid.org/.well-known/openid-configuration
