Single Sign On (sso) with Vanilla 2.6x
Hello, I am starting this new discussion in 2.6 Help as a main place to talk about SSO for Vanilla 2.6x open source. There were quite a few idiosyncrasies for our implementation, so I will first make a reply that is sort of a tutorial for those using WordPress and the WordPress (jsConnect) plug-in. I also operate other SSO implementations that don't use the WordPress plug-in, such as straight SAML.
So, If people post their questions to this discussion, I should get a notification... and after all my time spent on this topic, I may be able to help.. or I may not. ;-).. but it'll be good to keep all of this one place I think.
Note: It appears SSO will be (at least somewhat) backwards compatible through 2.7 as well.
Notes on: SSO with Vanilla and WordPress (and External Auth Provider [SAML])
