  • Authenticating Users via the EspoCRM API for External Application Login

    Hello everyone,

    I'm working on a project where I want to leverage the user credentials stored in my EspoCRM to authenticate users into an external application. Essentially, the idea is to let users log into a different application using their EspoCRM username and password.

    I've attempted to use the EspoCRM API for this purpose, but I'm running into some issues. I know that EspoCRM provides an API key-based method, which I've successfully used to fetch other types of data. But, when it comes to user authentication for an external login system, I'm a bit stuck.

    Has anyone else tried to do something similar? I'd really appreciate some pointers:
    1. Is the EspoCRM API designed to handle such authentication use cases?
    2. Are there specific API endpoints or methods I should be using?
    ​Thanks and take care!

    Hi there,

    On my end I did something like this (in Laravel)

    PHP Controller

    $base64Auth is $authStr here
    PHP Service

    You can do a cURL GET request and it will be the same​.
    $user will contain the user's data or nothing if the username / password aren't matching.

    Regards,
