[Zope-CMF] Login from a script
Mon, 3 Feb 2003 12:42:39 +0200
I have a very simple question. I am trying to do a two step login but
make it seem like only one step to the user.
I want to 1) ask for a username and a password, and 2) find the real
userid from another source and 3) post the userid and the password to
zope for authentication.
How do I do that POST from a script? GET or POST from the user seems
to work, but I have not found a way to do it from a script. I am sure
it is something very basic but I have not found an answer myself yet.
This is an example of what I have tried:
member=context.find_memberobject_by_string( uname )
if member != None:
REQUEST.set('__ac_name', member.getId() )
REQUEST.set('__ac_password', pw )
return context.logged_in (context, REQUEST )
logged_in does not consider the __ac_name or __ac_password passed to
it this way, it always results as unauthorized.
