external login: questions for $auth->login()

Post by Niko! » Tue Jan 30, 2018 11:52 am

Hello,

i am creating an external login system.
Basically if you are logged in my external website, you click on a button, the system finds the phpbb forum account linked to the website account and does a login + session create.

the problem is that I need to provide a password to use $auth->login()
is there a method to login a member/create sessions without using the password? maybe using only the username or the user_id ?

thanks in advance and sorry if this is the wrong section :)
