I’ll be running a competition on an external (Rails) site which just needs the Discourse user’s ID and their username - it should work something like this:
- They are logged into the Discourse forum
- They click a link that goes to the external site
- They get logged in automatically
Ideally they don’t have to ‘log-in’ or ‘authenticate’ again if they are already logged in to the Discourse forum.
Any suggestions on how to achieve this in the simplest way with Discourse?
Edit: Looks like David has done all the hard work in implementing SSO
