SSO

edited April 2015 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.3

Hello!

I've been reading about jsConnect, and I understand the goal of that is to enable Vanilla Forums users to log in using an account on an authorised system (such as a wordpress blog).

I already have a system where my users' accounts are stored by Vanilla.

How could I approach the task of adding Vanilla as an authentication mechanism for another system? (Using Vanilla's user account system to authenticate with everything, not the other system's). I'm hoping to achieve this with Concrete5, but am unsure about where to begin.

Presently using Vanilla 2.1.8 and Concrete5 5.7.

I want Vanilla to be the 'Logon authority'.

Since posting this, I've found this discussion which is similar: http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/29650/how-to-use-vanillas-forum-accounts-in-my-own-site#latest however I do not understand it very well.

I hope that makes some sense

Thank you
