Hi,

In my custom cookie sso class. In the authenticateuser method i am setting the email to like this.

SessionContext session = JForumExecutionContext.getRequest().getSessionContext();
session.setAttribute("sso.email.attribute", user.getEmail());

I added a println in the checkSSO method of controllerutils like this:

String email = (String) session.getAttribute(SystemGlobals.getValue(ConfigKeys.SSO_EMAIL_ATTRIBUTE));
System.out.println("email from session "+email);

The email attribute is null at this point so the new user is setup with the default email address from SystemGlobals.

Has anyone else come across a problem like this

Thanks

Paul

Hi,

I have trawled this forum trying to find the answer but haven't had any luck.

I have implemented a cookiesso mechanism. This works fine.

Is this possible. When jforum creates a jforum user on the fly how can i set the email address it uses to be the email address for the user in the main app.

Do i have to update the users table manually? If so at what point do i know a user has been created on the fly?

Can i set something in authenticateUser that will set the email address on the jforum user.

The reason i need to set the email address is obviously for reply notifications etc..

Thanks and sorry for another post.

Paul

Might be me being stupid. Wouldn't be the first time but shouldn't the line in ControllerUtils

protected void checkSSO(UserSession userSession)

the line is

String email = (String) session.getAttribute(SystemGlobals.getValue(ConfigKeys.SSO_EMAIL_ATTRIBUTE));

should this be
// gets the email address stored in the session
String email = (String) session.getAttribute(ConfigKeys.SSO_EMAIL_ATTRIBUTE);

or
// get the email address stored in the config
String email = (String) SystemGlobals.getValue(ConfigKeys.SSO_EMAIL_ATTRIBUTE);

The one in the source would be using an email address in the config as the name to look up in the session???.

Could someone help.

Thanks

The email address should be read from the cookie written by your webapp.


And you have to add the following line to ConfigKeys.java:


And also, add a new key to jforum-custom.conf
