Auto signup new student to Muut forum

Teachable uses SSO (federatedID?) and I'd like to set an automation so that "if user joins my Teachable school" they are added to "my education Muut forum". I'm not sure how to do this. Teachable has a webhooks area but to be honest I haven't played with it in ages (since they added Zapier). And currently students have to signup to Muut from the embedded forum if I'm not mistaken? I'd love to know how to do this. I'm also willing to pay if someone says it's an hours work or something (if it involves negotiating with Muut and/or Teachable to change their APIs or webhooks, probably not). I teach businesses how to set up online schools so this would be useful not only for me but my clients who need business forums for intranets and extranets. I've only been on Muut 5 minutes and if I missed something when I searched the forum, or there's a walkthrough somewhere, please forgive me :) xxx Laurel

In the past, I've spent considerable time working on Teachable seeing what I could get to work. However, due to limitations of the Teachable platform Federated ID is not available for Muut on Teachable. Which means that there's no mechanism — at this time — for Muut to link your existing users into Muut without them having to sign up for a Muut account as well. Basically, they don't support the server side code necessary to make it work

Oh Monika *sobs* What about webhooks, Teachable have a webhooks option in settings, or does that rely on SSO? BTW I looked at Zapier integration but at $450 a month for Muut Large Plan it's too much for small business and corporates will use a developer to create their own solutions so I think I have to skip Zapier :( But thanks for getting back to me :) xxxx <3

Using Teachable's Webhooks wouldn't work to link into FedID.
