I'm not really sure where to start with this... I have an application written in VBA - users can be uniquely identified. What I want to do is grant automatic access to a private user forum.
The user forum is based on Drupal 7 Commons Community by Acquia and requires a login.
Basically I want the ability to create (or trigger the creation of) new users from within VBA and thereafter automatically log the user in whenever they use the VBA application.
Interested in finding out how this could be achieved and security considerations. Also, I'm not looking to reinvent the wheel, if there is a solution that already does this, I'd be happy to hear about it.
