#10734 closed defect (wontfix)

Uses depreciated AccountManagerPlugin options

Reported by: hasienda Owned by: froosh
Priority: normal Component: HtgroupsPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords: option
Cc: rjollos Trac Release: 0.11

Description

In htgroupsplugin/trunk/README.txt some configuration examples show long depreciated and soon removed options from AccountManagerPlugin:

  • 'password_format' has been obsoleted by
    • 'password_store' for direct store selection including store chaining and
    • store-specific options for hash type selection, i.e.:
      • 'htpasswd_hash_type' for HtPasswdStore
      • 'db_htpasswd_hash_type' for SessionStore with IPasswordHashMethod HtPasswdHashMethod (selected by 'hash_method' in turn)
  • 'password_file' has been depreciated in favor of store-specific options, once more to allow for seamless store chaining
    • 'htpasswd_file' for HtPasswdStore's password file in htpasswd format
    • 'htdigest_file' for HtDigestStore's password file in htdigest format

Please update the documentation, and maybe the plugin reading these options as well (unchecked). The AccountManagerPlugin supports only Trac versions down to 0.11, so the existing 0.9 branch of HtgroupsPlugin is not relevant here.

(In [12494]) AccountManagerPlugin: Finally remove historic password_file option from file stores, refs #10734 and #10735.

Likewise 'password_format', another depreciated option, is removed too.
Both changes have been prepared for a rather long time now, mostly to allow
for seamless store chaining. Equivalent options have been introduced before:

  • 'password_file' - depreciated in favor of store-specific options
    • 'htpasswd_file' for HtPasswdStore's password file in htpasswd format
    • 'htdigest_file' for HtDigestStore's password file in htdigest format
  • 'password_format' - obsoleted by a combination of
    • 'password_store' for direct store selection including store chaining
    • store-specific options for hash type selection, i.e.:
      • 'htpasswd_hash_type' for HtPasswdStore
      • 'db_htpasswd_hash_type' for SessionStore with IPasswordHashMethod HtPasswdHashMethod (selected by 'hash_method' in turn)
