This is what has to be done (in the right order!):
1. Add a PAU
2. Make sure, the PAU knows some users - e.g. this way:
1.Add a principalfolder
2.Add a principal into the folder
3.Configure the PAU to use the principalfolder
3. Make sure, the PAU is able to extract the credentials correctly
(Session-Credentials are usefull for that)
4. Register the PAU
Once the PAU is registered, the default IAuthentication utility which provides
zcml-predefined principals becomes invisible (speak: "useless"). This means,
have a manager any more and you're unable to unregister the PAU again.
For that reason, I wrote a Auth-Plugin which is like a principalfolder but all
defined there are managers.
However: I wrote a Mini-Howto on how to remove the registration of a PAU
Unfortunately it's in german:
