The Gateway is a great idea looking a bit into the future though can you confirm that:
The Gateway will be a platform for external websites to retrieve STO based info for use on other sites.
I run a website for my fleet which I would love to be able to make a RESTFUL or SOAP web service call to the Gateway to retrieve current info including fleet rank about a certain profile and have my websites Access Control Level updated for that user.
So Joe.Blog@joeblogs might be a registered handle on my website and he has a website rank of level 1.
When I promote Joe.Blogs within my fleet that information is available by Gateway and when my site next retrieves that info it then allows a workflow to run that will update the user's rank of my fleet site.
Is the exposure of an API like this a possibility in the future?
