Can Vanilla (Open or Managed) act as a SSO authority for my disparate Web sites?
Hi, I am considering Vanilla for use in our environment. I have read through all the forum posts I can find that are related, and all seem to point to jsconnect as the answer to the above question, however this does not seem to meet our needs.
I fully comprehend how to use one of my existing sites as an authority for Vanilla to work with. However, I'm considering using Vanilla as a replacement for several sites, such that Vanilla is the authority for authentication.
site1.domain.com <- existing site
site2.domain.com <- existing site
discussions.domain.com <- Vanilla
I would like to take site1 and site2, remove their current, heterogenous authentication systems, and instead have users at site1 and site2 register/sign-in with Vanilla. (It should be assumed that Vanilla will be allowing social logins etc.) On subsequent visits to either site1 or site2, have users authenticate with Vanilla. Please note I am looking for authentication only, authorization will be handled by site1 and site2 respectively.
Thanks in advance!
