Hello fellow devs
I hope this is an appropriate place to start with my question as I am absolutely new to moodle and its development culture. A basic forum search and look through the API did not bring up any real answers, so here we go...
I am developing a web-service for a research group. Its future users already have accounts in an existing moodle instance. I wonder if there is an existing infrastructure/API to use moodles authentification for signing into my new service. This is opposite to what some forum threats discussed: making moodle query a 3rd party authentication infrastructure. I noticed that mahara seems able to do something like this with the help of the mood auth hub, but the docs give the impression that this a specific usecase and not a generic interface external sites can hook into.
Thanks for any pointers you can provide feel free to comment if more information is required.
