Restful_authentication - using http auth in IE


#1

Hi,

my restful_authentication plugin is always logging in using http auth.

But only in IE. In Safari/Firefox in displays a form.

Where do I tell it to use html login form?


#2

I didn’t want http auth or cookie-based logins at all, so I modified
the current_user method in lib/authenticated_system.rb like this:

def current_user
  # Original method allowed login from http authentication or

cookie, but we are disabling that.
# @current_user ||= (login_from_session || login_from_basic_auth
|| login_from_cookie) unless @current_user == false
@current_user ||= login_from_session unless @current_user ==
false
end

If you do make this change, be aware that if you install a newer
version of restful_authentication your modifications will be
overwritten. That wasn’t an issue for me.

wierd that this happens in IE though, I had the same issue. Did you
ever properly resolve it? We need http auth for API calls.
