Topic: SSO

Hi,

I have LuxCal installed on an internal site, and it's great! Thanks very much for providing this package.

A minor problem: I'm unable to get the Single-Sign-On part of Luxcal working. I have a simple test php page with:
-----
<?php

session_name('PHPSESSID');
session_start();
$_SESSION['lcUser'] = 'joe';

echo "Logged in as ", $_SESSION['lcUser'];

echo "
<iframe id=\"luxcal\" src=\"/test/luxcal/?cP=2\"></iframe>
<P>
";
?>
-----
and on the webpage I see:
'Logged in as joe'
but the calendar still has the 'Log in' button, and requires logging in to make any changes.

What am I missing? Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Hello susanc

Your code is nearly OK.
Instead of the name, you have to use a mail

So

$_SESSION['lcUser'] = 'joe';

could be $_SESSION['lcUser'] = 'joe@joesmail.com';

Then it should function

Re: SSO

And - just a suggestion :

Instead of :

echo "
<iframe id=\"luxcal\" src=\"/test/luxcal/?cP=2\"></iframe>
<P>
";

Then use one line and specify height and width ( easier to see the logged in name ):

echo '<li><iframe id=\"luxcal\" src=\"/test/luxcal/?cP=2\" width="688" height="858" scrolling="yes" style="overflow:hidden; margin-top:-4px; margin-left:-4px; border:none;"></iframe></li>';

Re: SSO

Sorry - just tested on my own site - the slash after the cP=2 has to be removed. So it should be something like this :


echo '<li><iframe id=\"luxcal\" src=\"/test/luxcal/?cP=2" width="688" height="858" scrolling="yes" style="overflow:hidden; margin-top:-4px; margin-left:-4px; border:none;"></iframe></li>';

Re: SSO

Thanks so much for your response. Unfortunately, I'm still having the problem with the SSO, even after changing the $_SESSION['lcUser'] value to an email address.

$_SESSION['lcUser'] = 'joe@joesmail.com';

The page reports 'Logged in as joe@joesemail.com', the calendar looks great, but still has the 'Log In' button. After I log in as 'joe@joesemail.com', everything functions fine and I can add and delete events correctly.

It's not a deal-breaker, since I still really like the calendar. But it would be a convenience to have the single-sign-on working.

So any other ideas or suggestions would be welcome smile

Susan.

Re: SSO

I have tested it myself and for me it functions.

Just to make it clear :

You have created  a user:   BRIAN

This user has an email : brian@calendarforum.com

Then you use :  $_SESSION['lcUser'] = 'brian@calendarforum.com';

And you should see the calendar where user BRIAN is logged in.

Re: SSO

I have placed my script in my calendars root.

Re: SSO

When you place the script in the root, the iframe could be something like this :

echo '<li><iframe id=\"luxcal\" src="index.php?cP=2" width="600" height="800" scrolling="yes" style="overflow:hidden; margin-top:-4px; margin-left:-4px; border:none;"></iframe></li>';

Sorry - it is the same idea but I know it should function.

Re: SSO

Everything looks right, and functions correctly, exactly as you describe, except this one little piece of the authentication being passed on from the $_SESSION['lcUser'] variable.

Perhaps it's something unusual about the way our webserver or php installation is set up. I'll poke around some more and let you know if I come up with something.

Thanks for the info you provided.
