Hi,
i would like that jforum reads users from a webservice and store it throw other webservice instead of doing it on the jforum database.

Basically i want that jforum users are replicated in other source than the jforum database for having some data relative to jforum available for other applications.

The legacy applications only know how to read data from this webservice and this webservice can not access jforum database.

Is that possible with jforum?

Thanks in advance

The easiest method is look at the SSO documentation/posts here and create a custom SSO implementation class. With this method, you still have entries in the jforum_users table and what you're trying to do with the SSO code is to keep it updated with info from your "Master" authentication info.

A more complex (and more coding) way is to look at modifying the underlying Data Access Objects (DAO classes) so that the jForum user entity object fields that map to your master authentication source's info (e.g. username, e-mail, name, and the like) are populated and stored there.
