Third-party-login possible?

    I have a request from a customer to include a user forum into our existing software. We have a user database that must be used for the forum authentication also, preferably of course without having to log-in again.

    Is it possible with xenForo to do some kind of third-party login or implement a custom login method? Or are there any defaults that could be used like openid or similar?

    Best regards,

    You'll need to sync accounts to XenForo (a lot of XenForo depends on the xf_user records), but you can easily write authentication methods to interact with both XenForo and your system.

    Any 3rd party login will need to be custom coded unless you have imported from one of the supported software.
