Salesforce Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for Salesforce administrators, implementation experts, developers and anybody in-between. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I could answer this question by spending a day doing it, but has anyone tried using oAuth to log in a sites user?

My concern is that since usernames are not globally unique, but only unique to that org, that salesforce wouldn't have a way to know which portal to log them in on. I didn't see any parameters to scope the org/portal.

Most of the time, with sites, the answer ends up being, "it doesn't support that"

AFAIK, OAuth is supported only for full licenses - not authenticated sites or portal. In part, I think, because of the org dependency you mention.
