/usr/bin/rt and WebExternalAuth and GSSAPI]

I’d very much love to see these patches.

Turns out it is too simple for a patch.

Just add the following to ‘/usr/bin/rt’:

use LWP::Authen::Negotiate;

It is a plugin to LWP and the LWP::UserAgent will use it automatically
as needed.

I have tested it and it works well. All the normal single sign on
goodness and convenience.

I just have one line in my ~/.rtrc
$ cat .rtrc
server

$ rt ls "Subject like ‘tax’"
21: Get 2005 taxes done

My Apache server is using mod_auth_kerb to authenticate access to RT.

I believe that LWP::Authen::Negotiate will be uploaded to CPAN within
the next two days. It has one other dependency.

It turns out that if you have no .rt_sessions file then you will get
prompted for a password (which you can just press on).

To avoid the password prompt, have two lines in your ~/.rtrc:

server Your-RT-URL
passwd ‘’

Works great.

use LWP::Authen::Negotiate;

As of today, the required perl modules are now on CPAN.

LWP::Authen::Negotiate 0.05 or higher
GSSAPI 0.18 or higher

I’ve tested and it works great.
