Joomla plugins vs. Community Builder Plugins

1 year 11 months ago #286866 by quasiman
Hi,
I wrote a plugin for Joomla authentication and profile integration with an external API, and I'm now looking at (coming back to) Community Builder for similar functions. I'm trying to find the API documentation, but it's not in the downloads area. Is access to the API documentation a paid service?

We don't have any API documentation beyond the various tutorials below.

What specifically are you wanting to do?

Thanks Kyle,

Basically I just want to get user data from the API at login, and post to the API when changed in CB.

Easiest way to do that is just use CB Auto Actions then act on the after login trigger with a Request action to send your HTTP request. It supports substitutions so you'd simply use substitutions for whatever information you need. CB Auto Actions for a lot of cases will eliminate your need to code anything. Try it out on our demo site below (backend and frontend access is provided).

I appreciate the suggestion, but I'm not looking for a pre-built solution.

If I can still use the Joomla methods of onUserAuthenticate, and onUserAfterSave, that's fine with me. I'm just not sure if the Community Builder user process is still using those.

Yes, you can still use those with CB.
