Authenticate users and get roles from Atlassian Crowd user manager
|Reported by:||lee@…||Owned by:||anybody|
Atlassian has an application, Crowd, that supplies a SOAP interface for user authentication and a REST interface that, among other things, will supply role info for users.
Crowd can already be attached to some tools (besides Atlassian's apps like Bamboo, Jira, FishEye, Confluence, etc.) including SVN, Apache, Spring Security and ACEGI and others. It has some SSO support as well.
It would be handy to use Crowd to manage users and roles for Trac projects. This should be similar to the LDAP plugin. There is also another SSO plugin whose name I forget but it already exists.
