  1. Existing portal users will be able to Single Sign-On (SSO login) into the WordPress site using their Salesforce credentials. The WordPress Salesforce SSO login is established using miniOrange SAML 2.0 SSO plugin where Salesforce will act as SAML identity provider (IDP) and WordPress will be the service provider (SP).
  2. When new users sign-up for WordPress site, upon registering with their username, email, password, etc. will be synced to Salesforce to create users in Salesforce with the same details.
  3. Initially when a new user registers on WordPress, upon successful submission of the registration form, the user is created in Salesforce with the isActive attribute set to ‘FALSE’.By this we are forcing users to change their passwords after first login and email verification is mandatory.
  4. Once the user logs in and activates their account, the isActive attribute is reset to ‘TRUE’ and the user will be successfully synced into Salesforce from WordPress with the Salesforce Object Sync plugin without exposing the stored raw password, and the password sync will be complete.

End User Experience

  1. Users will register on the WordPress site.
  2. A welcome email will be sent to the user; users will need to login to the Salesforce community portal using the password with which they registered.
  3. Salesforce will ask users to reset their password to access the Salesforce community and they will be able to seamlessly access the WordPress site without being prompted for credentials.

Your self-registration page hosted on the WordPress site to take new registrations and existing users will be able to access your WordPress site without having to re-enter their credentials.
