simplesaml auth extension for 3.1.x ?

Post by bujam1 » Sun Jun 26, 2016 12:04 pm

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the forum and phpBB. I have been searching for a working simplesaml authentication extension for phpBB 3.1.x.

Although there are some old extensions (MODs) that claim to work for 3.0.x versions (https://github.com/anelis/phpbb-saml https://github.com/strandbygaard/phpbb-saml2 and https://github.com/pitbulk/phpbb-onelogin), now with the different management of extensions for 3.1.x I was wondering if anyone has managed to make phpBB work with saml (using any of the above extensions or even by creating a new one) and would like to share the know-how :)

Thanks in advance for your time,
Theodoros

Since I got no replies from the forum of anyone having managed to port/rewrite a simplesaml authentication extension for phpBB 3.1.x, I spent some time reading the simplesamlphp and phpBB3 API (also trying to figure out what is working and what not from the -partially deprecated- examples in Area51) and managed to make this code https://github.com/strandbygaard/phpbb-saml2 work for phpBB3.1.x!

Apart from the necessary reordering of directories and code for the creation of the authentication extension, I made some additions to the code and also managed to make it support custom profiles fields (lastname, firstname, etc provided that they are already created in phpBB and returned by the Idp).

The code is VERY rough since I had very little time to spend on it, but if anyone is really interested, I might be able to find some time to wipe out things that are specific to my case (also write a proper composer.json) and post a .zip file here (or create a gist/repo) for the community to use and enhance.

Kind regards,
Theodoros Theodoropoulos

I'm trying to use SAML authentication in PHP 3.1 (or possibly 3.2) too.
Did you published your porting on GitHub or somewhere?

Thanks.

Noud, right now your contribution is visible only to you and the extension validators and testers. It can be accessed by anyone once it has at least one approved revision. :)

kasimi,

thank you informing me.
I will (try to) fix the validation error and warnings.
And will resubmit the extension when done
and then will post the correct visible link in the Customisation Database.

in the mean time before the validation error and warnings are fixed
the extension can still be fetched from https://github.com/noud/phpbb-saml2

greetings,
Noud
