Updating your extensions for AuthManager
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Wikimania 2016 hackathon session about AuthManager.

The authentication framework of MediaWiki has been rewritten for 1.27: AuthPlugin has been replaced by AuthManager and SessionManager. Authentication-related extensions need to be updated (T110291). The session is aimed at maintainers of such extensions; depending on the familiarity of the session participants with the topic, it might include an introduction to AuthManager and SessionManager, a workshop for updating extensions, or just discussion and collecting feedback.

Time: Thursday, 23 June, 14:00-15:00
Place: room 50

Question

  • Can AuthManager help with OAuth, for example allowing login/sign up to discourse.wmflabs.org with Oauth?
    • Not really. The SessionManager part of OAuth is already working fine, discourse just does not understand the version of the OAuth protocol that MediaWiki uses.
