Hello, I am trying to use PAS for a project requiring authentication. Here are the expectations:
1) Should accept a login/pass in the initial request. In other words, I want to be able to place a login widget on another page and login from there by passing the credentials in the initial request. 2) If login/password are not in the initial request, I want to challenge for credentials at this point. 3) Given valid credentials, it should authenticate against a Postgres DB. If authentication succeeds I would like a user object to be created and given a local role defined for that folder (the folder that the acl_users folder resides) and taken to the application. If it fails it should continue to challenge with appropriate error messages until the user gives up or enters proper credentials. What I have done: 1) Added a PAS object (acl_users folder) in the application's root folder. 2) Inside the acl_users folder I have added a scriptable plug-in object. 3) Inside the scriptable plug-in container, I have added a Script "challenge", updated it under the "interfaces" tab and activated it under the "activate" tab. 4) Added request and response to the parameter list of the "challenge" Script. 5) Created a page template called "login.html" in the same folder. 6) Added this code to the "challenge" script: 1. response.redirect(getattr(container, 'login.html').absolute_url(), lock=1) 2. return True 7) Under the "security" tab removed all checks under "Acquire permission settings?" At this point I expected that browsing to the url of the app with no credentials would produce the login.html page as an attempt at a challenge. What I get is, after, many seconds, is a Proxy Error explaining it cannot read from the server. I am fairly sure it is running the "challenge" script. If I remove one of the parameters it complains that the script expects one argument and is receiving two. I also referenced a garbage attribute of request to produce an AttributeError. Something, however is amiss. I have stared at the code and pored over the old mailing list posts but I cannot seem to get any further. Is there a how-to or anyone who has worked a scriptable plugin willing to help me a long? Any sort of a nudge in the right direction would be wonderful. I am currently using Zope 2.8.7 and PAS 1.2-final Thanks in advance. Regards, -- Jeffrey D Peterson Webmaster Crary Industries, Inc.
