Hi all, I've been off working on some other projects recently (zope3 projects, but none that involved specific logins and users, just data capture from a public site), and just got back to working with PAU, and had an interesting scenario presented to me. I'm trying to sell a co-developer on zope3, and we were discussing user management, roles, permissions, etc.
after i finished extolling the virtues of zope3's user management system, he asked the following question: say you're operating a site as a portal to some set of functionality. similar functionality, but with different groups of people accessing it. as an example, say different civic groups around town. the odds of having a "john smith" at the Civic Media Center and a "john smith" at Center for Cultural Awareness (I'm making these up ;) ) are, for our example, very high. what if we don't want to force each group to maintain unique logins across the board, since to each unique group, 'jsmith' is a perfectly unique signifier? what if we want to create our login schema along the lines of "group, username, pass" instead of just unique username/pass? is this feasible? I can't think of a way to do it, off the top of my head. I admit, I need to spend more time thinking about it, but I was wondering if anyone else has come across anything similar? Thanks in advance!
