Managing users & permissions via RemoteControl API?

8 months 3 weeks ago #174875 by schroederprojects
I'm trying to manage user permissions via the Limesurvey RemoteControl 2 API. We're using LimeSurvey Pro (not community... hosted by Limesurvey, not us)

We have an in-house application with a user permission model. From this application, we're using the API to create new surveys, generate user tokens, and monitor user progress on surveys. I'd like to limit access to associate users between our in-house system and Limesurvey.

Specific questions:
  • Is there any sort of single sign-on support (SAML or other) which we could use to link the authentication between our system's and Limesurvey admin users?
  • If there isn't, I'm planning to use the list_users API endpoint and associate users by email addresses. Is there a better way to do this?
  • Is there a way to manage the permissions of admin users or surveys through the API?
