We are using Confluence within another web application and would like to automatically sign users into Confluence from within our system, what are the options available?
What we'd like is similar to all the other web applications we use, in that with their API we can just supply a username/password and get back a token we can pass on to the login screen. However there doesn't seem to be such as system for Confluence that I can see?
This is "Single Sign On" (which is not quite a username/password token thing - once someone logs into a SSO system, they can log into all the other systems that are in the same SSO setup, but there's no up-front exchange of username/passwords really)
Confluence does work with SSO systems - the most obvious one is Atlassian's own Crowd, but it can be hooked into others. The important thing here is what SSO systems your other web-application can provide or be hooked into?
As far as I understand they don't provide any other mechansim apart from simple API calls, and this is all pretty well integrated now too so moving to some other system would be very problematic, I was hoping Confluence would be just as easy to integrate.
The API does have a login() call but this seems only for API calls :(
