Rt-3.4.2 - WebExternalAuth

Hello all,

Generally, I have WebExternalAuth working with the following setup:

Authentication Settings on my rt3 virtual host:

    <Location />
     AuthType Basic
     AuthName "Request Tracker"
     AuthUserFile  /path/to/file
     require valid-user
    </Location>

In RT_SiteConfig.pm:

Set($WebExternalAuth , 1);
Set($WebFallbackToInternalAuth , undef);
Set($WebExternalGecos , undef);
Set($WebExternalAuto , 1);

RT allows the users to login, creates their login name as username
and puts the GECOS field, but I’d like a way to also let RT enter
details for their e-mail address when it creates their account.

I know it involves writing some code, only I can’t (re)invent that
wheel;)

    cheers

Just to add … that my setup does not give the users the logout button,
but that looks “usual”, I think, no?

Yes, it’s not possible to use RT logout button when you use HTTP Basic
auth. Basic/Digest auth algorithms are described in the HTTP standard.
Browser sends credentials with each HTTP request. You can logout only
if your browser support it.

See http://dispatches.azstarnet.com/manual/howto/auth.html#basicfaq

Looks like Mozilla 1.8 alpha 4 can logout
