Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.

Need help with jsconnect on v2.3.1

I'm having problems getting jsconnect to log my website's signed-in users into vanilla.

I would be willing to pay for someone's time to help me sort this out.

We had this working for v1, but now that we've upgraded to v2.3.1 I can't seem to get all of the pieces in place. The Test URL link shows that the signatures match, but the user is not logged into vanilla.


Basically, the data I need to log the user into vanilla is in the $_SESSION array. Their user ids on the website match the user ids in vanilla, so this should be fairly straightforward.

Thanks in advance.


  • I was finally able to get this working. jsconnect 1.5.3 and vanilla 2.3.1. There seemed to be some differences of opinion as to the proper name for the signature has - "sig" or "signature" depending on where you look. Finally got all of the pieces talking with each other.
