Discourse - Managing User list in closed community


(Duncan Field) #1

Hi there,

It’s been a while since I was active here.

We’re running into a big problem regarding our community. We’re looking at quite a large potential pool of users, and a few partner organizations are very adamant at having a closed membership - that is, the only people who are allowed in are those who are invited (and are typically members of different associations).

The trouble is that because we have a few different umbrella organizations, we’re not able to use SSO, as I think Discourse will only be able to check against one organization’s member list. Does anyone have any suggestions for keeping up with all of our different organizations as people leave/are fired? The groups who want to participate want to make sure that user lists are kept up to date.

Hey Duncan,
As this is Discourse specific I think you’ll probably get a better response in the #community category on Meta. Happy to help you there.
