Elkarte + VTiger

Hi folks,

we need to integrate a discussion forum into an vtiger installation.. The forum shall be accessible for all users who are logged in to vtiger's "customer view".

Vtiger needs to be the master, containing all user data and role information (well except Elk's master user). Changes in vtiger shall be mapped into Elk.

The idea is to perfom the updates to the user data directly into the database, say, by a nightly cron job.

Regarding login / logout .... we would actually like to see a single sign on also controlled by vtiger. If i remeber correctly the situation of ancient SMF 1.1.x, it might be able to simulate a login/logout by simply setting a flag in an appropriate variable of the database, which obviously would make it easy to realize a single sign on procedure at least as long as the applications reside on the same host.

Is this still possible with Elk ?

Any suggestions, ideas, maybe even examples?

I integrated with the login logic to pull the details in from an ldap server. Then register the user in the database as Elkarte needs an user in the members table to tie everything together.

You might be able to use some of that logic to integrate with your application.

In addition to the above, you can gather some information from a couple of addons that "interface" with the auth system.

One is the social login addon, not really what you are after but has some insight into the system ... https://addons.elkarte.net/feature/External-Auth.html

And then two bridge systems which is, I think, what you are after
