Description

17 years ago
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.

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)

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
