User passwords

Are the user passwords compatible with my /etc/passwd passwords?
I am writing a simple script to synchronize my rt-users with an ldap store
that has my unix passwords. Trivial, but not so trivial if the passwords
are not compatible. :slight_smile:

Instead, why not use RT 2.0.6’s external authentication feature
and apache authentication handler that uses your ldap data store?On Wed, Sep 05, 2001 at 06:33:25PM +0200, Patrik Wallstrom wrote:

I have looked around, and didn’t find any documentation on it, do you have
a pointer?

Check the config.pm for the external auth options. After you’ve turned
them on, you can use anything you like from within the Apache
configuration, RT just doesn’t care for passwords anymore.

There are dozens of apache modules out there which can do authentication
for you: based on Postgres, MySQL, LDAP, PAM, NTLM, whatever. Locate
your preferred module on http://modules.apache.org/. Check the
appropriate module documentation how to install and use it.

Re-write the password checking in WebRT/html/autohandler - that way you
don’t get the ugly apache auth windows, and get the RT dialog instead.

We have nice LDAP auth working this way :slight_smile:
