API for user information

Unread post by TroelsL » Tue Sep 12, 2017 10:15 pm

I'm trying to use the Synology API for user authentication.

I tried the SSO Server, but I can't find any documentation other than the .js script. My clients are not web clients.

Basically, I want to validate a username/password against the synology API. I've made it work using webman/login.cgi.

However, as an additional layer, I'd like to verify that the logged in user belongs to a particular user group.

Does anyone know if such an API exists?

Did you find a solution? I am also working on a similar application, where I'd like to authenticate users with local DSM accounts. Any help is appriciated!
