LDAP Overlay Update: Account Autocreation

Hello!

With the most enormous thanks possible to RuslanZakirov who got me
thinking about it the right way, and also to DirkPape for his notes on
Callbacks on the CleanlyCustomizeRT page, there’s now a callback
extension for the LDAP overlay which autocreates RT accounts at login
if the user passes authentication. This means anyone in LDAP can
immediately log into RT with no need to first create their RT account.

I’ve updated the LDAP wiki page:

http://wiki.bestpractical.com/?LDAP

You can find the callback and installation instructions here:

http://wiki.bestpractical.com/?LdapAutocreateAuthCallback

You should be able to add this, restart your web server, and see the
results immediately.

I know a large number of you asked for this; I’m sorry it took so long
to get it right. It’s right, now. =]

Cheers!

Hi Jim,

On your instructions do you mean create a file called
LdapAutocreateAuthCallback in the /Auth directory, or a file called Auth
in the autohandler directory?

Regards
