Users log in to the App (session is created on the App server) and navigate to the button (website). Upon tapping on the button, it opens new window displaying (login page of the website). They have to insert their credentials once again and then access to their accounts.
Allow users to access the website without going through login page again (they are verified when they login to the App, so no need to verify again).
I searched for a proper plugin that connects Joomla to App platform (Appery) but I could not find. Many Joomla plugins allows single sign on using facebook, google ... etc. But I could not find any one can word with mobile App that exists on different server with separate DB
Session and Cookie is excluded as both on different servers.
I also referred to this Logging in user without getting password from them , but I could not figure out what plugin the OP is talking about.
I I've got LDAP configured and enabled however still could not get the SSO to work..
Since the separate databases share the same user credentials, I thought it might be better creating an authentication plugin for my website which authenticates against mobile mobile application database. This way, when a user logs into the mobile application they already have a transportable session. However, I've never created any plugin before, let alone a login plugin.. (any where to start from ?)
I also resorted to this idea (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/29115209/amend-form-content-on-ajax-request) but from the responses I got, it seemed to me irrational.
I searched over the internet for quite a while, and I posted several questions trying to explore my way through this. I would deeply appreciate your help and support.
