Thank you in advance for your help.
I am creating a "Single Sign On" for a Joomla site and have reached the final stages. The user is providing a username & password to authenticate with a 3rd party database other than the database Joomla uses so we are not actually logging anyone in who does not provide a username and password (all of our users create their accounts on our main website which is not a Joomla website).
I have been able to log a user in who authenticated on our main website by using the function mentioned (onUserLogin) in this question asked on Stack Exchange:
There is a function called onUserLogin mentioned in that question and this function allows me to log in the user. I think the function onUserLogin is logging the user in based on the username on the account, but I need to log them in based on a unique "company id" we setup and is available in the user table in Joomla (we added an additional field to the user table).
What I am hoping someone might be able to do is let me know how I need to change the function to use the custom field we added vs the username (if it is in fact using the username at this time).
Thanks again for any help you can provide.
