Is there another way to connect Vanilla (by provided methods/classes) instead of ProxyConnect

edited November 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
So I run in trouble with the ProxyConnect and also this method isn't a good idea if I would migrate 100s of users from another system.

Also it seems to be ProxyConnect isn't right stable and isn't strong enough supported. I run in a big trouble by move a complete running installation from one Server to another....

So I wonder if there are some class(es)/methods or include file(s) available to handle users... (like in phpBB) ??? And if not (hopefully this isn't true) why not?

    I'm not sure what you're asking. You're looking for a way to do SSO... without our SSO addon?

    I think he's looking for an API to access user management on the backend. I've been asked this many times in many different ways. Basically a way to hook into Vanilla's user classes for tighter integration; an end-run around SSO by doing Vanilla's work with their app instead.

    Hi Tim ....
    in principal yes... I'm looking for an API
    I run in trouble with the ProxyConnect
    I haven't than idea what it is.. and by the way I use proxyConnect only since I found no other method ...

    On the other hand: I would like migrate from another forum to vanilla and therefore it would easier to have another method as the SSO via ProxyConnect...

    Sorry for the comparison: but in phpBB I can include some (class)files which provided by
    phpBB and after that I are able to code the login, add user etc. (direct involved in my own classes) etc... That for me much more stable and free of side effects...
