Custom fields in SugarCRM

Submitted by bas on Mon, 09/03/2009 - 20:33

I received a lot of questions about creating custom fields in SugarCRM. Custom fields are often required to get my SugarCRM authentication plugin for Joomla 1.5 to work. To be honest, I think you should know about creating custom fields before trying to authenticate your SugarCRM contacts in Joomla. Authentication can be tricky an it's good to have a solid grasp of both SugarCRM and Joomla before venturing on the path of remote authentication.

I received numerous questions about using the authentication plugin. The top question was: "does it work in Joomla 1.0?". I'm afraid it doesn't and it probably never will. If your keen on knowing how to use the plugin and don't know where to start: please watch this video (and ignore the wobbly english).

SugarCRM authentication plugin for Joomla

I wrote a plugin for Joomla 1.5 and SugarCRM (4.5 or higher) that authenticates SugarCRM contacts in Joomla. If you install this plugin you can automatically grant your clients access to your public website, without actually giving them an account in the website software. The plugin is based on the new modular authentication system in Joomla 1.5. An administrator configures which fields in the SugarCRM contacts module are used as username and password.
