JAuthTools Update

Today I’ve been working on some new stuff for Joomla! to enable SSO between disparate Joomla! instances. I’ve tested it on Joomla! 1.0 and 1.5 in legacy mode. I’ll do some more work later to get it working with Joomla! 1.5 in native mode and to better integrate with JAuthTools for 1.5 (to utilise the SSO system that I’ve written for 1.5). If you’re interested, check out the JAuthTools SVN here: http://joomlacode.org/svn/jauthtools/sso/joomla10x/soapsso. If you check it out you can use the install from directory feature to install it into your test sites. I’ll have packages up in the next few days.

I’m also looking at doing some work on the JAuthTools for 1.5 to improve support. There appears to be some issues so I want to get it back up and running as well as porting/merging some of the features from the LDAP SSI into 1.5 and the LDAP Authentication plugin. I’ll probably also do some update to docs on the wiki as well to reflect the new features.

Things on my todo list after I clean up my released JAuthTools plugins:

  • Backlink Manager
  • JAuthTools Manager
  • JDiagnostics for 1.5

    Hi, we have connected succesfully the LDAP to Joomla 1.0.x. but we cannot get the SSO working.
    Do you have a solution for this?
    We used 1.0 because it is an excisting site, and some extensions are not yet prepared for 1.5.
    The Joomla is installed on a Windows 2003 server on Apache.

    Do you have any documentation on LDAP with an existing schema and creating users on registration in Joomla and LDAP?

    Is this sort of what you’re after? http://community.joomla.org/magazine/article/507-developer-ldap-from-scratch-sam-moffatt.html

    It depends on a schema addition of its own, maybe when I get a chance I’ll get around to configuring it to try and work within the structures of existing systems like Active Directory (I’m not quite sure how I’m going to achieve that yet, AD has its own weird requirements) but its a tad hard to test these things with limited documentation from Microsoft and the hidden complications that AD introduces. I haven’t had the chance to get eDirectory down to try and integrate with that and until I get a copy of Mac OS X server OpenDirectory isn’t going to be supported.
