netFORUM Single Sign On

netFORUM Single Sign on. Allows users to sign in to wordpress using Avectra netFORUM credentials.

How does this plugin authenticate users?

The netFORUM SSO plugin uses the netFORUM xWeb web service API, to authenticate users.

Does it create new users in WordPress?

It will create users in WordPress if they don't exist, on the users first login. It does not save the users password in WordPress. So the user will always need to sign in with their netFORUM credentials. Users need to navigate to netFORUM to change/update their passwords.

I am getting a "Client credentials are required" error message. How do I fix this?

Usually this error is created when the netFORUM login credentials set in plugin page, under the General tab is incorrect. To fix this double check the credentials you entered in the plugin page.

How can I create hyperlinks to netFORUM so that the wordpress user doesn't have to login again?

The netFORUM_sso plugin saves the users xWeb single sign on token in a cookie in WordPress. You need to append this SSO Token to the hyperlinks to netFORUM. This way the users can navigate over to netFORUM and not have to login again. The SSO token in the cookie field "ssoToken"

To use it in a page or post, you can to install another plug-in that will allow inline php code in your page (there are several). And something like the snippet below will then work.


  echo 'netForum SSO Token is: ' .$_COOKIE['ssoToken'];

  • The above example uses the “Insert PHP WordPress Plugin”.

Does it work with netFORUM Enterprise?

No each implementation of netForum Enterprise is different, with different business rules. We have to customize the SSO plug-in to work with a particular enterprise implementation. So we provide the netForum Enterprise plug-in as a paid commercial plug-in. Please contact us at info@fusionspan.com.

What is the xWeb Url?

The xWeb Url is usually of the form https://netforumpro.com/xweb/signon.asmx?wsdl for your live instance or https://uat.netforumpro.com/xweb/signon.asmx?wsdl for your test instance
