Using external platform for authentication to bbPress
We currently have built a website with a custom theme and are looking to add create a community within our website.
Our site architecture dictates user authentication/authorization to content managed through a 3rd party SaaS platform (Salesforce), so users are never hosted within WP. So user authenticates to site via API call to Salesforce, which has a token returned which authenticates to site and authorizes content. My question is has anyone attempted to leverage bbPress with this architecture, adopting the authentication cookie to identify the user in bbPress and subsequent posts?
I have not found any documentation on this approach therefore thought I’d start here. If there’s documentation out there and I’m blind, feel free to give me a nudge. Thanks!
