Need help to integrate Twitter Login in AEM


Level 2

Integrate Twitter Login in AEM:

When a user log in using his twitter account the user should be authenticated. Upon successful authentication user should be redirected to project website home page along with user name listed in the my profile section.

Problem statement:

We thought of using OAUTH authentication for social login (twitter) which AEM provides. Default Twitter login module create user with in AEM but our need is to get user authentication done and get the profile information to create User Profile outside AEM. we don`t want the users to be created within AEM for obvious reasons like user synch up problem between publishers. Client too don`t want users to be created within AEM. Kindly let us know if any one worked on such scenario earlier or have idea on how to go about it.

Note: We have implemented Custom authentication handler for in website login functionality. Can this be leveraged or made changes to be used for social login (twitter).
