OK, many thanks for that - good to know that there's prior precedent.

I never read anything where it said that OSM-auth was only for editing. So I have worked on the assumption that the answer would be yes, you can piggyback. -- Jói / Stalfur 1. ágúst 2019 kl. 11:58, skrifaði "Nick Whitelegg" <nick.whitel...@solent.ac.uk<mailto:nick.whitel...@solent.ac.uk?to=%22Nick%20Whitelegg%22%20<nick.whitel...@solent.ac.uk>>>: Hi, I'm just asking something which was raised as an issue in my Gitlab repository for OpenTrailView (www.opentrailview.org<http://www.opentrailview.org>; fully FOSS 360 panorama site which uses OSM ways to connect panoramas together). The person who raised the issue requested that OSM logins be used on OpenTrailVIew rather than (as currently) its own login system. I suspect the reason is security-related as it allows users to use an existing trusted authentication system. As OpenTrailView does not include provision for editing OSM data, I suspect the answer is no - but is it acceptable for third-party OSM-related sites which do not edit the data to 'piggyback' on OSM's authentication system like this? Thanks, Nick
