Currently, MediaWiki has an AuthPlugin module that allows third-party developers
to easily write an extension to authenticate MediaWiki logins against another
database (like our intranet app). This is wonderful, but it'd be great to be
able to start a MediaWiki session when a user logs in to our app. That way, we
can include a link to our wiki site inside our app and the user doesn't have to
re-enter their username and password...they're already logged in.
I thinking of something like this (pretend this is the authentication code for
if ($username and $password are valid)
// This eventually uses our AuthPlugin subclass which authenticates to our
$mw_session = new MediaWikiSession($username, $password);
// This sets the MW cookie(s) and effectively logs the user into MW
Thanks for reading.
I don't think this is an API issue. Changing to general.
Is this still an issue? Could it be clarified?
PiRSquared17: What kind of clarification do you look for?
