Trying to set up SSO


(riz) #1

When do i need to use a webhook?

I’m trying to setup SSO or possible create a new user through the API.

Do i need to setup a webhook for that?

So i’m confused as to the use case for webhooks? and when to use them or use the API or SSO?

I think you probably want this guide instead:

If you’d like further assistance with your SSO integration, please describe in more detail what you’re trying to accomplish.

A webhook is normally used for an outgoing transaction. For example if you have a user created in discourse or a new topic created etc it can update / create record in outbound system.

The API is used for inbound transactions. Creating new users / topics in discourse etc.
