Is there anyway to auto create user from CASLogin?


I'm setting up a wiki for my company. We have a CAS server, but when i log in by CASLoginContrib, I found i can't find the user in any gourp. But what i want is, when a user is ahthenticated by CAS, it will automatically registered on my wiki. Is there anyway to do it?

Have a look at NewUserPlugin. It does not add users to a group but creates a profile page for a user that has logged in one or the other way (ldap, cas, cert, ...)

Then how can create a real user when login by CAS? I need to do access control for those who login from CAS

According to the logs ...

This Authentication infrastructure can be coupled together with an external User mapper such as Foswiki:Extensions.LdapContrib, allowing foswiki to 'outsource' its user details.

... you need to install LdapContrib as well. Never had the opportunity to use CAS my self ...

Now i switch to our LDAP services. But after days of trying, i can't get it worked.Always said ""Oops: we could not recognize you. Try again or reset your password.""

And the apache2 log says "dn not found". Now i till don't know where is going wrong.

I'm not really familiar with LDAP, how does foswiki authenticate user by LDAP? Using bind process? If so, why do i need to provide "bindDN?"

Is there anyway i can dump the LDAP cache and find what's wrong?

sub getDnOfLogin { my ($this, $loginName, $data) = @_;

return unless $loginName;

$loginName = lc($loginName) unless $this->{caseSensitiveLogin}; $data ||= $this->{data};

my $key=""; my $value=""; writeDebug("get each key"); while(($key, $value) = each($data)) { writeDebug("key is $key, value is $value"); }

return Foswiki::Sandbox::untaintUnchecked($data->{"U2DN::$loginName"}); }

I add some logs and try to print things in data, and found $data is empty. Why?

Finally i directly sudo rm cache.db*. And everything is OK. But i still don't get why i get a empty database
