Most likely your SSO user in not in a group that has admin priviledges. You'll need to log in as the native admin user and add this SSO user to the admin group. [originally posted on jforum.net by monroe]
Rights are based on User id NUMBERS not names. Generally, when you do an SSO login, a new JForum user entry is created, if one doesn't exist. So, even though your user login name is admin, it's id number (DB primary key) is not the same. And so, it is not considered to be an admin because it's NUMERIC id is not in the admin group membership.
That said, a general process for granting SSO users admin rights would be to do the following:
1) Turn on SSO and log in as the ID you want to be an admin user (creates the JForum_Users entry)
2) Turn off SSO (modify config info) and log in as default admin user (see install docs)
3) Add the new SSO admin user to the admin group
4) Turn SSO back on. [originally posted on jforum.net by monroe]
Username ''Admin' is already added to admin group. Following is evidence:
SELECT group_name FROM jforum_groups, jforum_user_groups, jforum_users WHERE
jforum_groups.group_id = jforum_user_groups.group_id AND
jforum_users.user_id = jforum_user_groups.user_id AND
jforum_users.username = 'Admin';
Above query returns 'Administration'.
After above, when I SSO with user "Admin", I should be seeing control panel link???
Please help..this gating beta launch of my website...
