Can I develop a single-sign-on interface to intergrate the vanilla forum with another cms?

edited April 2017 in Development

Is it possible to develop a single-sign-on interface to integrate the vanilla forum with another cms?

My story is I like vanilla forum(A) and want to integrate it with the company cms(B). Of course we have ldap server, but users need to login twice. I dont like it. So I want to create a login page that will create a logged in cookies of both A&B. I already saw the code and the cookies when a user signed in A, but dont really understand the logic behind it. (Which info is stored in the cookies?)

Can someone help me answer:
1. Is this possible?
2. How to do it?

Thank you
PS: sorry I can't post in dev forum :( Any mods or admin can move it to the right place.

    Vanillas SSO solution of choice is jsConnect: http://docs.vanillaforums.com/help/sso/jsconnect/

    You can find a PHP implementation here: https://github.com/vanilla/jsConnectPHP

  • Thank, I'll try to implement this. If I have any problems, I'll feedback here.

  • Hi, I completed the login site which can verify the user can login into the AD server and give info of fullname and email. But how to configure it to work with the jsconnect plugin? I dont really get the idea of a few fields in "Add connection page": like "Sign In URL"?

    You must have some PHP knowledge ^^

  • @vanilalover, I'm not at my office right now, but look at the docs that R_J posted, as well as do some searches on this forum. JSconnect, once configured, works pretty well in these custom solutions. It is confusing at first, but doable.

    On the grander scope, I sure would like to see an open source solution for standards, such as simpleSAMLphp, which would allow more options for SSO.

    I'm almost getting to the point where I could help write or contribute to an add-on for this.. but time / resources are the challenge.
