Firstly I need to get my SP working.
Configure SP & Apache initially..
I need to
configure Tomcat to use Shibboleth for Authentication configure Jetty to use Shibboleth Authentication.
Once this is done I will have the users attributes as environment variables.
Now I have the variables I need to create a script to check the variables and create an account if required. All sounds pretty simple right? Let’s hope so, as I make progress I will document my changes.
I’m referring to the LDAP plugin patch code for how to handle “talking to etherpad”.
ETA is 3/4 weeks. Sucks that I need to use Apache but oh well!!
Note: Etherpad runs on Jetty, not Tomcat and doesn’t require Apache. It is the shibboleth element of this that requires Apache to operate.
Note: Thanks to nuba for reminding me about Jetty.
