This plugin allows you to use a user-written custom script to authenticate the username and password. This is useful if you need to plug into a custom authentication scheme, but don't want to write your own plugin.

Plugin Information

View Security Realm by custom script on the plugin site for more information.

This plugin now supports group resolving for a user loging in. One can define two scripts:

  • script to authenticate the user.
    Each time the authentication is attemped (which is once per session), the specified script will be invoked with the username in the 'U' environment variable and the password in the 'P' environment variable. If the script returns exit code 0, the authentication is considered successful, and otherwise failure.
simple authentication script
#!/bin/sh
if [ "$U" == "domi" ] && [ "$P" == "imod" ]; then
   exit 0
fi
exit 1
  • a second script to resolve the groups for a user loging in.
    The specified script will be invoked with the username in the 'U' environment variable.
    If the script returns exit code 0, the output will be tokenized by the delimiter (default: ',') to create a groups with each token.
simple group command script
#!/bin/sh
if [ "$U" == "domi" ]; then
 echo "admin,superuser"
fi
