WebRT non member access?


#1

Hello,

Is is possible to give all users access to the WebRT queue display? I
noticed it wants me to log in with a valid WebRT account before letting
me see the queue situation.

I did not see anything in the docs, read archives from January onwards.
I suppose I can create a guest account with no password, but is this the
usual way to let requestors see what is happening with the requests? Or
is it normal practise to allow only members see the queues?

Greetings,
You could super easily hack together a quick to read the entries
in the RT database. I believe I started doing that a few months ago for
the silly people here at Wes. I am not certain, though if RT per se
supports that. If you want my code for it, I would be glad to hunt it
down; though I am not certain where I put it.

			Have a nice day,

I’ve done something like this such a way:

  • make new cgi script (link to suid_wrapper) for anonymous access - f.e. rtview.cgi
  • add a few lines to test if $program is equal to rtview.cgi into bin/rtmux.pl
  • in that body copy the body of condition for webrt.cgi with this a line
    above:
    require “/opt/rt/etc/config_anonymous.pm”;
  • copy your etc/config.pm to config_anonymous.pm and edit it as below:
    $web_auth_mechanism = “external”;
    $ENV{REMOTE_USER} = ‘operator’;#–name of your anonymous account;

Thats all.

Cheers

This is scary. I’m imagining tracerouting you and seeing links like “Route
84” and “Route 9, Exit 14”. Obviously, this is illness induced.
