Can you advise a way (or possible future functionality) to use the data from an App Connect API Data Source action (or perhaps a different extension), to validate a user login in DMXzone Security Provider 2?

Basically I need to:
- submit a PHP login form
- send the username/password to a custom API script that connects to an external webapi for user authentication
- the custom API either returns nothing if invalid details, or JSON user info if valid
- set the PHP session/cookie from user JSON
- then, POST the info from the JSON to an ASP script that sets the same user ASP session/cookie values

Hello Kent,
Unfortunately that's not possible. Security provider only accepts dynamic data from a database table.
