4 different authentication methods in db registration dialog
Michael Hieke committed code to support 4 different authentication methods in the database registration dialog:
- Use saved user name and password - Use saved user name and encrypted password - Use saved user name, but always ask for password - Use trusted user authentication
The method is selected via a choice control. For the last two the password entry field is disabled, for the last one both the user name and the password entry fields are disabled.
Empty password is supported now for the first method. Unfortunately our user management does not allow for empty passwords. Supporting the creation of users without password is easy (remove two lines from IBPP), but deleting the password of an existing user is impossible ATM. This needs more work anyway.
I had to modify our internal copy of IBPP slightly, will add patches for that to SF tracker.
