We have a large, highly customized Sitecore implementation that we are adding community features to using Telligent Community 7. Due to the highly customized interface of our main site we are going to be integrating Community Server using the v2 REST API.
This system is completely closed requiring users to log into the site. This login process uses a dedicated SSO database that we built to tie into an existing system and is the entry point to the Sitecore powered site. On the Sitecore side we use virtual users as there was no reason to store the user in Sitecore. Given that, we need to do something similar with CS but I'm not sure where to start.
My assumption is that Telligent Connect won't work for us at all because we are using virtual users. Can anyone confirm (or, even better, accurately deny) this?
Having not used CS much personally I'm not sure the best/right way to start with tying our SSO users to their equivalent account in CS. Suggestions are welcome.
