NAME

       Lemonldap::NG::Portal - The authentication portal part of Lemonldap::NG Web-SSO system.

SYNOPSIS

       Use any of Plack launcher. Example:

         #!/usr/bin/env plackup

         use Lemonldap::NG::Portal;

         # This must be the last instruction! See PSGI for more
         Lemonldap::NG::Portal->run($opts);

DESCRIPTION

       Lemonldap::NG is a modular Web-SSO based on Apache::Session modules. It provides an easy
       way to build a secured area to protect applications with very few changes.

       Lemonldap::NG manages both authentication and authorization. Furthermore it provides
       headers for accounting. So you can have a full AAA protection for your web space as
       described below.

       Lemonldap::NG::Portal provides portal components. See <http://lemonldap-ng.org> for more.

KINEMATICS

       The portal object is based on Lemonldap::NG::Handler::Try: underlying handler tries to
       authenticate user and follows initialized auth / unauth routes.

   Initialization
       Initialization process subscribes portal to handler configuration reload and requests
       handler initialization (Lemonldap::NG::Portal::Main::Init).  So configuration is read by
       handler at each reload.

       During configuration reload, each enabled components are loaded as plugins:

       authentication module
       userDB module
       other enabled plugins (issuers,...)

       init() is called for each plugin. If a plugin initialization fails (init() returns 0), the
       portal responds a 500 status code for each request.

       See Lemonldap::NG::Portal::Main::Plugin to see how to write modules.

   Main route
       The "/" route is declared in Lemonldap::NG::Portal::Main::Init. It points to different
       methods in Lemonldap::NG::Portal::Main::Run. Theses methods select methods to call in the
       process and call do().

       do() stores methods to call in $req->steps and launches
       Lemonldap::NG::Portal::Main::Process::process(). This method removes each method stored in
       $req->steps and launches it. If the result is PE_OK, process() continues, else it returns
       the error code.

       If it is an Ajax request, do() responds in JSON format else it manages redirection if any.
       Else it calls Lemonldap::NG::Portal::Main::Display::display() to load template and
       arguments, and launches Lemonldap::NG::Common::PSGI::sendHtml() using them.

DEVELOPER INSTRUCTIONS

       Portal main object is defined in Lemonldap::NG::Portal::Main::* classes. Other components
       are plugins. Plugins do not have to store any hash key in main object.

       Main and plugin keys must be set during initialization process. They must be read-only
       during requests receiving.

       The Lemonldap::NG::Portal::Main::Request request has fixed keys. A plugin that wants to
       store a temporary key must store it in "$req->data" or use defined keys, but it must never
       create a root key. Plugin keys may have explicit names to avoid conflicts.

       Whole configuration is always available. It is stored in $self->conf. It must not be
       modified by any components even during initialization process or receiving request (during
       initialization, copy the value in the plugin namespace instead).

       All plugins can access to portal methods using $self->p which points to portal main
       object. Some main methods are mapped to the plugin namespace:

       logger() accessor to log
       userLogger() accessor to log user actions
       error() accessor (use it to store error during initialization)
