Now that I've done about 1 1/2 Vanilla integration's into 1-off custom sites, I am thinking about rolling this forum platform out to all of our wordpress sites as well (we operate around 20, some with forums). Because of the complexity of an External IDP, I wanted to throw out my thoughts to this forum for feedback.
The main idea is a single sign on between wordpress and vanilla. Here is my first guess on how to achieve this.
Here is my thoughts, which uses simpleSam:
IDP <-----> simpleSaml <-----> WordPress <--------- Vanilla with WordPress Plugin | | WordPress <--- Vanilla with WordPress Plugin, ( etc. and more )
So basically, all WordPress sites talk to the simpleSaml system for authentication. SimpleSaml get's it's auth from the IDP. Vanilla logs into WordPress using the plug-in.
