Thanks to Dan Pierson and J.Atwood for pointing me at the GUF/SQL
howto. I've beating my head against LM since. I even looked at
the source code (which might be more useful if I spoke Python...
Anyway, here's what I think I've figured out:
Four methods must be created under a UserSource, whether DTML
method, external, or whatever:
userExists - passed 'username', return 1 if exists.
userAuthenticate - passed 'username', 'password', return
1 if valid user.
userRoles - passed 'username', return user roles in either
space-delimited string, or list.
userDomains - passed 'username', return either a list of
valid domains (example?) or an empty list/string(?)
to leave it wide open.
How is that? Am I even getting close? It's worth noting that I
still haven't been able to get LM working on either of two
At home I got past userExists and userAuthenticate, but then kept
getting "Forbidden." It appears that I'm not successfully
returning a list of roles back to the UserSource code. (When I
uncomment the stuff to report that from ForbiddenPage, my roles
are empty.) But is it possible that the real problem is the
domains, or something else?
At work, I can't seem to get past the login screen. I've tried
dropping <dtml-raise ...> and python raise all over the damn
place and it appears that program flow is going nowhere near
those four methods or their wrappers in UserSource.py. The
