Warning: Authentication Plugins have not been released, and they may yet gain more features before the R2 Release, only the Bitweaver Auth is fully tested in R2

What Authentication Plugins Provide

The method of authentication used to allow user login can be tailored as required by the use of authentication plugins. The key authentication methods are supported by existing plugins, but at present only the base bitweaver authentication has been fully tested.

How to use Authentication Plugins for Site Administrators

The authentication methods being used for a site are configured from the administrators user login settings panel. Additional tabs will be provided on that page where configuration information is required for a plugin, such as the settings for accessing an LDAP server.
