Hey all,At work, we are using dokuwiki + LDAP for authentication. We (and probably many others) decided to make a group hierarchy to set whether a user is allowed access to the wiki or not. However, this variable is not available in the default code. This would make a nice add-on. In fact, it's already recommended on http://wiki.splitbrain.org/wiki:auth:ldap by Dmitry Cherniachenko. In our situation, we use that gid to specifiy an ldap query in the configuration file so only people in a specific group are allowed access.
Would be a nice addition with the new release upcomming. I don't think it's gonna break anything at all for users that won't use this variable, and for lot's of people, it would make a nice addition.
I filed this request in this ticket (patch included), feedback is welcome. http://bugs.splitbrain.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=1338 Wouter Schoot -- DokuWiki mailing list - more info at http://wiki.splitbrain.org/wiki:mailinglist
