I got their mail, but I think they missed my last post here, where I stated, that the connection does work so far.
Well, groups do not work - like the permissions do not work. at the moment anyone can edit in the wiki - which could be changed in the mediawiki config I guess - but administrator access does not work. all administrators are handeled like normal users.

I´ll write an answer to the support team - but I think discussing here would make more sense, since other ppl could learn from this case?

greets, Nik

Hi Nick,

We can discuss features here, but we don't solve issues and provide any support through this thread.

The vBSSO permissions are not permissions related to vBulletin or Mediwiki, that's vBSSO own permissions to restrict access for single sign-on. You should configure your vBulletin and Mediawiki permissions separately as they should be configured. vBSSO doesn't know anything about your admin roles or other roles. The single sign-on is handled the same for all the users.

Thank you,

Hi,

thanks for your answer. Actually I`m really confused.

vBSSO doesn't know anything about your admin roles or other roles.
Well, if a users gets signed in, there is no information "delivered" by vbsso what usergroups a user got?

I got some idea, but don`t know, if that is the correct approach:
I could rename the usergroups of mediawiki to the usergroup names of vbulletin.

In this case mediawiki needs to know in which usergroups the current user is (in vbulletin)?
But as far as I understood, that isn`t the case...

greets, Nik

Roles are currently not supported in this version of vBSSO, probably the feature will be added next year.

I use this Plugin for some time now and I like it very well.

Sometime I had to delete or merge users on my vBulletin. Both actions take no effect on my connected wordpress.

At the moment I also try to integrate vbsso into my own php project. After I figured out how your plugin works (and after integrating my own detailed logging) it was really easy and works great. Just one thing is missing on your side. I need to change userfields (Name and Avatar) on my part.

So can you implement these three features, or any?
- Send delete to connected platforms
- Send merge to connected platforms
- Receive profile changes from other platforms

Thank you for your efforts!

Can someone help me understand exactly how the 'vBSSO Access Settings ' options should be configured just to sync vbulletin 'registered user' and WP 'subscriber' ? My goal is to allow my logged in VB 'registered users' to comment on my WP posts and have their VB username and avatar appear next to the WP post comment.

Currently, I have success with connecting my VB 4.2 and WP 3.5, but when I navigate from VB to WP it does not show me as a logged in user in the WP post comment form unless I manually log in via the vbsso login form WP widget. Then it does show me as logged in in the comment form as desired.

Here are the 3 fields - I'm too dense to figure out exactly what they mean w/o an example:

Allowed User Groups
User groups having access to any platform (separated by comma)

Allowed WordPress User Groups
User groups having access to WordPress platform (separated by comma)

Associated WordPress User Groups
User groups associating visitors from WordPress platform (separated by comma)

Thanks!

Update: shortly after posting the above I logged in with the vbsso WP widget, and then logged out w/ the VB logout link and noticed that it also logged me out of WP, then I logged in again w/ the VB login and it also logged me into WP as desired. This was after I cleared everything from all of the 'access settings' fields and just left them blank. So I learned that by leaving all 3 fields blank, a VB registered user becomes a WP subscriber by default.

When I log in as VB admin, my WP role is also 'Subscriber' by default, so now I just need to know how to set it up to sync VB administrator as WP administrator...?

i tried adding Administrator and Administrators to all 3 fields in all possible combos to no avail. maybe I'm not supposed to be able to get in to WP admin w/ VB admin role?

Thanks

Hello!
I've a trouble with vBSSO, vBulletin 4.2.0 PL3 and MediaWiki 1.19.2, everyday i got a lot of the following errors:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Tring to understand the trouble, I had actived the debug logging, until I got the error:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The trouble is in MediaWiki vbsso's extension file /vbsso/includes/api.1.0.php it try to use setEmail() but it's not go or the class passed by JSON isn't an object.

There is a way to fix or what?
