Hello! So let’s say I have a forum that’s hosted by Discourse, and I have about 100 active members on that forum. I don’t have SSO set up yet, so all these users signed up with Discourse accounts.
Now, let’s say I have my devs set up SSO on the forum, what happens to those 100 accounts that existed on the forum prior to SSO?
How will those users log in and still retain their account and post history? I don’t want them to have to abandon their accounts once SSO is configured with my site.
To make matters more complicated, most of those 100 members already have accounts on my site. Some under the same email they used to sign up for the Forum, others under a different email.
So once SSO is set up, will it know to merge the accounts that are under the same email? What about the accounts that are under different emails? How will users be able to merge their forum Discourse account, with their account on my site?
On a slightly unrelated note, is it true that your (awesome) invite feature won’t work if I have SSO set up? How then can I invite users to the forum and automatically add them to various groups?
