    Hello friends,

    I'd like to add another use-case to this. I admin, which is used by physicians, learners (residents, medical students) and other staff to keep up-to-date, etc.

    While we have found that Drupal is an amazing CMS (replacing our previous joomla), we have added Discourse and Moodle for forums and LMS respectively. There is no visual integration - they are very much their own thing, but it is essential for us that people don't have to remember yet another login. We accomplish this with OAuth2, though we've looked at LDAP as well.

    From the administrative point of view, OAuth2 is significantly easier to manage than LDAP (we use a drupal provider). Currently, mattermost is deployed, but used in a very, very limited way, since it's not reasonable to ask most users to take on an additional login/password.

    I propose looking at Discourse for a sane way to approach this. One way would be to allow local login (for invitees, say) and to also offer login / authentication via OAuth2. This way, people can authenticate using either a local or remote login pathway.

    It's obvious that we all have login fatigue, which is why I think this issue will continue to gain votes - up to 99 at the time of writing. This is the current model of login management, and I think MM will get stuck in terms of growth without it.
