I am setting up a Ghost website with a paid membership, and I want to grant paid members an exclusive role on my Discord server. Discord has a new featured called Linked Roles that allows members to authenticate with third-party credentials to gain special roles on Discord. For example: connect a Twitter account with at least 1,000 followers > get a special role on Discord.
This is the flow members go through to gain a linked role:
- Login to Discord
- Go to the specified server and open the Linked Roles menu
- Choose the role you want
- Authenticate with your third-party credentials
- Discord verifies you meet the criteria and grants the role
I am looking into building a Ghost integration that is hosted on Cloudflare Workers, but I am a novice when it comes to OAuth2 and authentication in general. Does anyone have advice on how I should approach this? Is it even feasible currently?
