I’m using the node.js API client (GitHub - 99x/discourse-sdk: Node SDK for discourse forum software) for a simple integration with my forum.
I immediately ran into problems as my forum is configured for Discourse SSO (AKA DiscourseConnect). When making API requests I got an error as the API consumer was not “logged in” to my SSO provider website.
As an experiment, I modified the discourse-sdk node.js API client so its requests included the cookies expected by my SSO provider website. This got me a little further.
However, my node.js code gets a payload containing an HTML rendering of the Discourse forum and not the data (in json form) that I expected.
I think I might be taking the wrong approach here. Is there a way for me to bypass Discourse SSO when using the API (i.e. a query string param, a different API endpoint, or a Discourse settings change, perhaps)
I’d appreciate your help.
