Subject Re: SCM Auth & Allura Auth
Date Thu, 16 May 2013 08:55:04 GMT
yes, I asking about "how to integrate authentication in Allura with
authentication for SCM access.".
I am sorry for my english is not so good.

We want use allura build a production forge site. Not a private forge.
I have implemented subverion server. Include http; svn; ssh protocol.
Use schroot; FUSE; LDAP.  But LDAP no sync with Allura.
And I want use LocalAuthenticationProvider not LDAP.

FUSE fuse/, only check permission from /auth/repo_permissions
But, ssh; https; svn; git; protocol need login authentication.
If use API or subprocess calls to register a new user on SCM. How to set
the password?
Allura user password encode same with the linux password encode?
