[New Feature] Discourse SSO


#1

Hello,

We just added a way to use your app as a SSO provider with Discourse. What that means is that your users can use their app’s credentials to login to a forum that you have set up with Discourse, as we do for this forum and your Bubble credentials.

You can see this section in the API section of the Settings Tab. You’ll need to add the URL of the forum and the key that you can generate in Discourse. You’ll also need to set things up in the forum as described here.

Note that this feature is available on the Professional plan and above.

Thank you @supernaturally for coordinating the sponsoring on this feature!

We use (and love) discourse as the main forums for our business. So glad I found this community - happy Friday everyone!

Any idea why its telling me to upgrade to personal plan to use this when I am on the personal plan annual?


#7

It was a typo, sorry, should be professional. We just pushed a fix


#8

Does this work with the self-hosted or the SaaS/hosted version of Discourse (or both)?


#10

What’s the URL for our app we should put into Discourse?

Figured it out. The text underneath the settings > API > Discourse SSO section includes the URL to use. Just copy and paste.

It works nicely now. Sent me an email to click on and created an account in the forum that matches the account in my app. If anyone’s curious, the app is https://track-well.com and the forum is https://forum.track-well.com

discourse is going to be hosted on its own server, so it will never be part of bubble.
My app has a link to the forum but it’s just a normal link to another website. The only way you know they’re together is they have the same branding and the same top level domain. (track-well.com vs forum.track-well.com). And, of course, if you already have an app account then the forum will accept that so you don’t have to log into each separately. That features really makes them feel like they’re together.

You might be able to embed the forum in an iFrame so that users don’t have to load the forum web page separately, but I’m just speculating; I haven’t tried that.
