my understanding is that part of the reason this was done, was laziness, on the part of the integrators, who didn't want to deal with the issues of having non pas users from the root acl browsing a plone site, and conditionally dealing with those the users within the plone code. i agree that its lame.

I agree, I think the way PlonePAS replaces the root acl_users is very bad. I
hope this gets addressed. Surely there is no need for it to do that.

I found the SQLPASPlugin on the Plone site or the collective - not sure
which.

I pretty much rewrote it to get it to do what I wanted.  I got no help
from this list or anywhere else.
PlonePAS provides a PropertyProvider set of interfaces for
setting/getting properties from an external source.

There is something strange in the install process. When I install my
product and create an acl_users in my Plone site, it seems to also add
it to the root acl_users which I don't like at all.

Since I had trouble getting acquisition to work, I created a zsql method
in source_users and directly addressed it.

Hope all this helps...

I'm going to be needing this functionality myself sometime soon.

Where did you find the SQL plugin? What's the official way of getting
users with extra properties from a relational back end? What
bastardisations has Plone added that need to be supported?

The code creates a zsql method in source_users which I can verify via
the ZMI that it is there.

Why do you need to create the zsql method using code?

When the authenticate credentials plugin is called it appears to
always be in the source_users folder,

What do you mean by that?

Why would be it fail sometimes and not others? How do I make it work
reliably?

I wonder if a differing set of acquisiton contexts are involved
somewhere along the line?

cheers,

Chris
