3rd Party Login


Cirrus Soft

Recommended Posts

I used this example below to allow users who have logged in to a third party application to be automatically logged in to the community.  I created the hook, but specifically this part I can't seem to get working:

/* If our check was successful, we create the member if he does not exist, otherwise we load the member.  We then set
                                $this->member to the member object we've loaded */

I coded this and confirmed $username and $email are collected:


              try
              {
                  $member = \IPS\Member::load( $username );
              }
              catch ( \OutOfRangeException $e )
              {
                  $member = new \IPS\Member;
                  $member->member_group_id = \IPS\Settings::i()->member_group;
                  $member->name = $username;
                  $member->email = $email; // You'll need to get the email from your login handler's database
                  // You may want to set additional properties here
                  $member->save();
              }
              $this->member = $member;

But it doesn't seem to log the user in.  Any guidance would be appreciated.

Yes, loading a member that does not exist does not throw an OutOfRangeException (I'll take a look at the documentation, maybe it is out of date). Instead, a guest object is returned. Additionally, the ActiveRecord class is expecting an id - if you want to load by username, you have to set the second parameter to indicate that.

Thank you!  this did the trick!!  I was now assigning the correct member, but it wasn't logging them in.  Adding this line and it did the trick:

\IPS\Session::i()->setMember( $member );

 

@bfarber - the documentation was good... it just lacked all of my code, I had to scrounge around the net to get what I put together above.  The only documentation was the comments:

 

 /* Check the remote application here - this may involve looking for custom cookies your application sets and then passing them
            to a callback script on the remote server, or including a custom PHP script you have written */

        /* If our check was successful, we create the member if he does not exist, otherwise we load the member.  We then set
            $this->member to the member object we've loaded */
