Custom user base integration


We are looking for a forum solution for our client area. XenForo looks very promising, but we have a couple of questions:

1. Is there any way to register new users via API call or directly into the database? We want them to be automatically registered after the purchase of the certain product only.
Also the same question about the authorization - can it be done via API call or by setting some cookies?
We want to keep a 'single sign on' concept in our client area.

2. Is the source code encrypted? We are using FreeBSD on our servers and don't want any problems with the Zend Guard and co.

3. Is there a Sphinxsearch support or only Elasticsearch is available?

Thank you

Single sign on is possible but it would obviously require custom development.

No, the source code is not encrypted.

The Enhanced Search add-on is the official product.
There may be a third party add-on for Sphinx - you can check here: Resources

There is currently no developer documentation.

We have a developer forum with some guides and where you can ask questions and the code is commented.
