Getting started


This documentation is designed for people familiar with PHP programming and object-oriented programming concepts. You should also be familiar with Filmchief from a user's point of view. There are many PHP tutorials available on the Web.


Before you start, make sure that you have everything you need.

  • A Premium Filmchief license
  • The Filmchief API must be enabled
  • A web server with PHP version 5.6 or higher
  • A HTTPS-enabled website

How it works

With single sign-on, your website can let visitors use their Filmchief account to sign in. After signing in, your website receives session information which includes email address, user ID, preferred language and the number of items in the shopping cart.

Setting up the SSO connection

In Filmchief, visit the SSO Setup Guide which will take you through the entire process. You will find this guide at System Settings, under Single sign-on clients.

The setup guide also provices examples on how to use the session information that you receive from Filmchief.
