ScholarLMS WordPress Integration SSO

ScholarLMS lets you integrate LMS and WordPress site with the help of the Moodle plugin.

This integration will make the SSO(Single Sign On) possible between the LMS and the WordPress site, meaning it will allow your WordPress logged in users to be able to access the LMS without logging in again. The user will be created (if required) by Moodle and optionally enrolled in the specified Cohort(s), Course(s) and/or Group(s).

Configuration on LMS site:

Step 1: Login to your ScholarLMS account at

Step 2. From the left navigation go to Settings->Advanced settings->Plugins->Authentication->Manage authentication
