    I want to integrate Jotform into our CMS and want automatic login authentication

    Asked by aptsolutions on May 30, 2013 at 07:01 AM

    We sell our CMS solution to many customers and want to adopt JotForm as the standard forms designer.

    We intend to move up the licence tree for Jotform ending up at the Professional level but will do this as we get each customer to sign up for it.

    We want to have a button on our CMS backend maintenance called 'Forms' and this will automatically login to Jotform using our own url (which we have now successfully tested) as a specific user who is allocated as a sub site off our main Jotform account.

    Can you tell me how we can achieve this automatic authentication (we will obviously pass the user name and password to the mechanism for authentication) including how the password and user name need to be encrypted.

    Hi,

    You may want to check out the license JotForm Apps instead here

    Thanks.

    The issue is that we want to use the online supported version rather than put a copy of the JotForm Apps on our own server.

    So that is not really a way we want to proceed.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the clarification on that.

    And please accept my apology for not being able to accomodate your requirement properly on the first time.

    As to your question..., perhaps further details should help us provide you more appropriate suggestion on your requirement.

    Can you please share to us more details about your CMS? which one are you currently using?

    There had been similar requirements like this, and usually a bit of PHP programming on owned hosted website are involved. This are the basic requirements...

    We look forward for more details. Please inform us.

    Thanks

    Our CMS is our own product written entirely within PHP so we should be able to code what is needed. It is a case of knowing what we need to do.

    Thanks for your help
