I am using Cookie Crumbler to authenticate users in Zope.
Am I right that Cookie Crumbler needs a "login_form" with fields 'username'
and 'password' template to login users in Zope or is it possible to login a
user in Zope without such a template, e.g. in an External Method ?
In Zope, I have a folder containing:
- cookie_authentication object
- a simple Page Template "inputForm.html" with an input textfield 'qry'
- an External Method "loginUser"
- a "logged_in" Page Template the users sees if he is looged in successfully
- an acl_users folder containing 1 user "testuser" (password: 123456, roles:
The Page Template "inputForm.html" contains a submit button which calls the
External Method "loginUser".
In the External Method I want to login the currently anonymous user in Zope
with username "testuser" and password "123456" (This user can be found in the
How can I do that? How do I need to modfify the REQUEST object to tell the
Cookie Crumbler that the anonymous user now needs to be logged in?
my External Method looks like this:
def loginUser(self, REQUEST=None):
"login a user into Zope"
qry = REQUEST.get('qry', '')
if qry == 'whatever':
# login user "testuser" in Zope
#... maybe something like ???:
?REQUEST['__ac_name'] = 'testuser'
?REQUEST['__ac_password'] = '123456'
# ... user not logged in
Any idea how I can login the current anonymous user in Zope within this
