       Lemonldap:NG::Portal::UserDB - Writing authentication modules for LemonLDAP::NG.


         package Lemonldap::NG::Portal::UserDB::My;

         use strict;
         use Mouse;
         # Add constants used by this module
         use Lemonldap::NG::Portal::Main::Constants qw(PE_OK);

         our $VERSION = '0.1';

         extends 'Lemonldap::NG::Common::Module';

         sub init {

         sub getUser {
             my ( $self, $req, %args ) = @_;

         sub setSessionInfo {
             my ( $self, $req ) = @_;

         sub setGroups {
             my ( $self, $req ) = @_;


       UserDB modules are used to search a user in user database. UserDB modules are independent
       objects that are instantiated by Lemonldap::NG portal. They must provide methods described


   Accessors and methods provided by Lemonldap::NG::Common::Module
       p: portal object
       conf: configuration hash (as reference)
       logger alias for p->logger accessor
       userLogger alias for p->userLogger accessor
       error: alias for p->error method

       "Routes" management

       Like any module that inherits from Lemonldap::NG::Portal::Plugin,
       Lemonldap::NG::Portal::Main::Auth provides URI path functions:

       addAuthRoute: wrapper to Lemonldap::NG::Handler::PSGI::Try addAuthRoute() method
       addUnauthRoute: wrapper to Lemonldap::NG::Handler::PSGI::Try addUnauthRoute() method


         sub init {
             $self->addAuthRoute( saml => { proxy => "proxySub" }, [ 'GET', 'POST' ] );
         sub proxySub {
             my ( $self, $req ) = @_;
             # This sub must return a PSGI response. Example
             return [ 302, [ Location => 'http://x.y/' ], [] ];

       This means that requests http://auth.../saml/proxy will be given to proxySub() method.

   Methods that must be provided by a UserDB module

       Method launched after object creation (after each configuration reload). It must return a
       true value if authentication module is ready, false else.

       Methods called at each request

       All these methods must return a Lemonldap::NG::Portal::Main::Constants value.  They are
       called with one argument: a Lemonldap::NG::Portal::Main::Request object.

       Note: if you want to change process() next steps, you just have to change $req->steps


       First method called to search user in database. If $args{useMail} is set then $req->{user}
       contains a mail address.


       This method is called after authentication process. It must populate $req->sessionInfo.


       This method populates $req->{sessionInfo}->{groups} if backend is able to provide groups
       (Like LDAP). Else, it juste return PE_OK.


       Logging is provided by $self->logger and $self->userLogger. The following rules must be

       logger->debug: technical debugging messages
       logger->info: simple technical information
       logger->notice: technical information that could interest administrators
       logger->warn: technical warning
       logger->error: error that must be reported to administrator
       userLogger->info: simple information about user's action
       userLogger->notice: information that may be registered (auth success,...)
       userLogger->warn: bad action of a user (auth failure). Auth/Combination transform it to
       "info" when another authentication scheme is available
       userLogger->error: bad action of a user that must be reported, (even if another backend is
       available with Combination)
