For those of use that have a Windows NT/2000 network, we already have NT usernames and passwords. It would be preferable in this case that Bugzilla could be configured to utilise the Web Server forcing the user to login (via Basic or another authentication scheme) and the LOGON_USER be used as the unique user identifier. This means of course that only people with existing NT accounts could use this installation of Bugzilla, but that is acceptable to us. -david
This may be a dupe... I'm just being too lazy to look :) If not, this could be expanded to allow Bugzilla to use /any/ webserver's authentication, including the Apache .htaccess type stuff. It should be able to be handled exactly the same (although w/a WinNT/2k auth, you may need to have the option of stripping the DOMAIN and being case insensitive).
I did a search against "Windows" and "Win32" and "authentication" but nothing came up. Your comment is right though.. If the user/authentication could be nicely abstracted, then you could "plug-in" either the current database/form-based login or another (like the .htaccess or NT logins) -dave
This is EXACTLY what we'd like to see as well - an easy plugin architecture for user authentication. It'd be nice if bugzilla came with several stock options - the one it has, NT, LDAP (but better architected), apache, and maybe even unix passwd.
Plugin architechture is coming in bug 180642. After that, a Bugzilla::Auth::Win32 module (which takes a username and a password, and returns a status) could be dropped in fairly easily.
Depends on: 180642
Target Milestone: Future → ---
it's possible to configure bugzilla is authenticate off active-directory via LDAP.
