Downloads and Source
|Stable Version||easy_install https://trac-hacks.org/svn/accountmanagerplugin/tags/acct_mgr-0.4.4||download from trac-hacks or from pypi||subversion|
|Under Development||easy_install https://trac-hacks.org/svn/accountmanagerplugin/trunk||download from trac-hacks||subversion|
The stable release will work best in most cases. It works for any release starting from Trac 0.11 to 1.0-stable. It does not yet support 1.1.x.
Browse the source with Trac to see more, ie there is the /tags branch containing the latest stable version as well as previous plugin revisions by version tag. For Subversion checkout use
svn co <url> with appropriate URL, see links above.
Code from branches suggesting the corresponding Trac version is available too, and it is in sync with tagged versions. There will not be a version
0.12. Code from
0.11 branch works equally well for all Trac starting from 0.11 up to Trac 1.0 (current stable). Once
acct_mgr-0.6 is released there will be a
1.0 folder indicating 'for Trac 1.0 or later'.
Hint: Whether you are using
tracd standalone server or a web-server, you must restart it to detect and load the plugin.
To use the features of the AccountManager some or all of its components need to be enabled. The available components are mentioned here, but are described in greater details on separate pages linked below.
|AccountManager||This holds the core code of this plugin.||This component must be enabled to use any of the other components. See details.|
|AccountManagerAdminPanel1||This component adds new pages to the web admin section.||The admin part for managing related parts of Trac's configuration in |
|AccountModule||Allows users to manage their account via tab "Account" in users "Preferences". They can change their password, or even delete their account, if permission granted by appropriate configuration.||The user accessible part, might be required or even forbidden depending on your use case. See details.|
|LoginModule||Allows users to login via a HTML form instead of using HTTP authentication.||Replace Trac's own login module for an alternative to Simple HTTP Authentication, but only one can be enabled at a time. See details.|
|AccountGuard||This component adds login failure tracking and administrative account locking.||Use it as part of your security policy to protect against brute-force attacks on user passwords. See details.|
|RegistrationModule||This adds a "Register" link on metanav, next to the Login link, where users can register a new account. The procedure of registration is configurable.||See details.|
|EmailVerificationModule||An new email address will trigger an email with a verification code to enter, to approve it is really users own email address, and user account privileges cut down until successful verification.||Implement a verification process for added or changed email addresses, if required. See details.|
1 Name in acct_mgr-0.3 was
AccountManagerAdminPage. If you are upgrading to acct_mgr-0.4 from an earlier version, and this feature was enabled using
acct_mgr.admin.AccountManagerAdminPages, this feature will now be disabled until it is enabled using
The easiest way to learn about available components and enable them is via Trac's plugin admin page. Users logged in with the
TRAC_ADMIN permission will be able to manage the enabled components:
Components can also be enabled or disabled in the trac.ini file under the
The configuration cookbook is the recommended place to look for examples of basic configurations and more.
To use the AccountManager plugin, while logged in as a user with
TRAC_ADMIN rights, use the "Admin" link on the menubar.
You might want to change some permission assignments. For instance, if you remove
WIKI_MODIFY permission from the "anonymous" group and add it to the "authenticated" group instead, then only authenticated, logged-in (registered) users can perform ticket modifications and wiki editing.
TRAC_ADMIN is not strictly required for access to account administration pages provided by AccountManager. The
ACCTMGR_* permissions are sufficient, and should even be preferred where appropriate, ie to limit delegation of administrative tasks to just account administration by granting
About i18n/l10n support
Starting with acct_mgr-0.3 this plugin has been prepared for localization, and English message texts are the (POSIX) default. If English is not your preferred language, you can:
- Check if it's already available from the Trac plugin l10n project at Transifex or
- Do it yourself, see the l10n cookbook page for Trac plugins for more details.

Preparing the plugin from source requires no additional steps for compiling message catalog files. To include
# fuzzy translations only, you'll want to do a manual message catalog compilation with the extra
-f argument before packaging:
cd accountmanagerplugin/ python ./setup.py compile_catalog -f python ./setup.py bdist_egg
Complaints about missing
locale directory are often a side-effect of failure to compile any message catalog for inclusion into Python egg, hence the whole path is missing. Due to a known Trac issue, Babel has to be installed prior to Trac to get it all working as expected. See the l10n cookbook page for Trac plugins for more details.
