How to Integrate Moodle With External Service ?
 

Im trying to integrate moodle with firebase, which provides me a way to generate a token for my users, my question is where do i have to make changes in moodle to parse that token and retrieve the appropriate moodle user?

Hi Daniel

I think we need a bit more information. Right now ... "just get the user to paste in their token somewhere" ... would be an acceptable answer, but I bet its not the one you want.

  • give us a paragraph or two explaining the whole process of what you are trying to do
  • whats firebase?
  • whats the token for?
  • is the user logged into Moodle? if not where are they logged in?
  • is it one token per site? one token per user?

I am going to take a guess that you want to authenticate users somehow. And that maybe you want to look at auth plugins.

 But you might also want to look at webservices.
