I've got the latest-ish review board running on a centos 7 system:
The basic Review Board page loads.
I want to configure authentication so that I can use PAM.
I see some 'old' posts that talk about PAM and LDAP using the same code
and but I don't see that code in the new 2.x release.
I wanted to take a stab at rolling my own auth module but I am just not
having much luck. Not sure if it is my non-existiant python knowledge or if
it is incomplete examples.
A lot of stuff I read on Review Board seems to be written to a group where
you assume that they have been doing python for years.
For example... there is this:
which looks pretty.. and you go great... that's what I need to start
with... but how, exactly does a new python / Review Board person use this?
I googled some stuff and found some magic command:
--class-name=PamAuthBackend --package-name=pam_auth_backend --author="Jack
Snodgrass" --description="Pam Auth" --is-configurable
that lets me me create a stub of sorts.
I edited the pam_auth_backend/extension.py file that I ended up with and
put in the code from the
I changed it a bit and ended up with:
# PamAuthBackend Extension for Review Board.
from __future__ import unicode_literals
from django.conf import settings
from django.conf.urls import patterns, include
from reviewboard.extensions.base import Extension
from reviewboard.accounts.backends import AuthBackend
from reviewboard.extensions.hooks import AuthBackendHook
backend_id = 'myvendor_sample_auth'
name = 'Sample Authentication'
def authenticate(self, username, password):
if username == 'superuser' and password == 's3cr3t':
return self.get_or_create_user(username, password=password)
def get_or_create_user(self, username, request=None, password=None):
user, is_new = User.objects.get_or_create(username=username)
if I run the command
python setup.py develop
and get my PamAuthBackend.egg-info
generated.. after restarting apache I get:
Something broke! (Error 500)
It appears something broke when you tried to go to here. This is either a
bug in Review Board or a server configuration error. Please report this to
.... which surprisingly... is not very helpful.
I know almost 0 about python but
python setup.py install
seems to be something that gets run a lot... so in this case I ran it to
see what happens and I get:
File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/distutils/cmd.py", line 326, in run_command
File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/distutils/dist.py", line 972, in run_command
line 154, in run
line 169, in _build_static_media
self._add_bundle(pipeline_js, extension.js_bundles, 'js', '.js')
AttributeError: type object 'PamAuthBackend' has no attribute 'js_bundles'
.... is this install command 'supposed' to work... or is this why I get the
unexplained 500 error after doing python setup.py develop and creating my
can someone help me out and provide an EXACT list of commands / files to
run that will get me setup with the stuff from:
so that I can then look at modifying it.
Thanks - jack
