There is also a line needed in core/user_api.php:

Add " require_once( $t_core_dir . 'nis_api.php' );" after the line including the ldap_api.php file.

Ideally, I would like to avoid adding more login techniques to Mantis. However, I would like to expose an interface that can be implemented to make Mantis use a custom authentication method.

Examples of authentication systems:

  • LDAP (which is currently built-in)
  • NIS
  • Content Management System (use user names / password from PostNuke, PhpNuke, ...etc)
  • Email server.

For more details about how we can allow such hooks, see core/custom_function_api.php in 0.19.0a2.
