Anyway to autologin to RT 3.8.2 with LDAP?

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to autologin to RT when we’re using LDAP?

I have other web based utilities that I’ve managed to configure the browser to auto login to that console. I’d like to extend that to RT. Any pointers on how or any how to on that subject?

Clarify what you mean. Do you mean by logging in to some other web
system you can then login to RT without further authentication, or are
you talking about certificate based login so the browser keeps a
certificate and uses it to automagically authenticate?

You should be able to use mod_auth_kerb and apache to do this.

That looks like a viable option if I can’t figure it out using the RT_External_Auth module.

LDAP alone cannot make SSO work, since you need some sort of cookie aspect to allow the browser to authenticate you, thus why Kevin Falcone suggested Krb5 which more than a few browsers understand how to use against the mod_auth_kerb module.
