Modifying Login Code
04 August 2011, 12:55 AM
I am developing SSO in my mahara site with my other site.
I have done this SSO process in the new page which I made in MAHARA and I am successful in it. I have made my cods for passing the username and password.
But I am having a problem that I want to call in on the submit button of the login block.
Need help that how can I make change in the login block coding so I can give code in the login form like:
<form .. action = "http://mysite.com/mypage" ...>
Thanks for any help in advance...

I believe that the Janrain plugin that we wrote does something similar... you may want to take a look at that.
What is your SSO mechanism?

Thanks for replying.
I will have a look on the Janrain plugin.
I have made my own page for the SSO mechanism from my MAHARA site to another site (which in neither mahara nor moodle) on my local server.
I have created a form in a new page which is passing a username and password for the another website on the submit action of that form and I can successfully get logged in to that site.
But I want to provide a feature like a user automatically get logged in to that site, as he logs into the mahara site.
So, I want to pass the username and password to the web site, at the time of login action in mahara site.

Are you sure there isn't a better way than passing a username and password around? Perhaps something like OAuth, or SAML, or cosign? As far as I'm aware, there isn't a hook for this kind of thing in Mahara.

I know this passing username and password method looks a bit improper for appplying and coding. But the solution which I need for the SSO and integration, I can find only this solution till yet for my systems.
I tried with some coding in the systems and I got what I needed at this level.
Even-though, I am looking at other options like addons and which you have mentioned here.
Thanks and Regards
