Account Manager Plugin
The AccountManagerPlugin offers several features for managing user accounts:
- allow users to register new accounts
- login via an HTML form instead of using HTTP authentication
- allow existing users to change their passwords or delete their accounts
These features are new in the plugin for Trac 0.10.
- send a new password to users who’ve forgotten their password
- administration of user accounts
Existing bugs and feature requests for AccountManagerPlugin are available from Trac-Hacks ticket system.
You do wonder, if you could contribute here? Great! There are some recommendations, where to start.
First make sure you’ve installed setuptools. Make sure you have a version >= 0.6c9, since previous versions contain a bug which makes the installation fail.
Then you can install the plugin using the
Note: Windows users will need to add easy_install to their PATH.
For Trac 0.9:
For Trac 0.10:
Install the trac:WebAdmin plugin.
Then install this plugin:
For Trac 0.11
For Trac 0.12:
If you are using the tracd standalone server or Apache 2.2.x you will need to restart it to detect the plugin.
Subversion Checkout (depends on your Trac version):
svn co http://trac-hacks.org/svn/accountmanagerplugin/0.9 svn co http://trac-hacks.org/svn/accountmanagerplugin/0.10 svn co http://trac-hacks.org/svn/accountmanagerplugin/0.11 svn co http://trac-hacks.org/svn/accountmanagerplugin/trunk
- [download:accountmanagerplugin/0.9 0.9]
- [download:accountmanagerplugin/0.10 0.10]
- [download:accountmanagerplugin/0.11 0.11]
- [download:accountmanagerplugin/trunk trunk]
In order to use the features of the AccountManager you will need to enable some or all of its components.
The easiest way to enable the components is via the trac:WebAdmin plugin. 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
[components] section. For example to enable the login form and disable user registration:
[components] trac.web.auth.LoginModule = disabled acct_mgr.web_ui.LoginModule = enabled acct_mgr.web_ui.RegistrationModule = disabled
Hint: Option names are written in CamelCase style notation, but will get (re-)written all-lowercase, if added/updated via the Trac admin web-UI. Anyway, case doesn't really matter here.
Note: To make it to replace the traditional trac login feature with a webform, also add:
[components] trac.web.auth.loginmodule = disabled
The available components are mentioned below, but described in greater details on a separate page.
See configuration cookbook page for hint's on proper configuration.
This holds core code of this plugin, so this component must be enabled to use any of the other components.
This component adds new pages to the trac:WebAdmin section for managing related parts of Trac's configuration (found in
Allows users to change their password, or delete their account via tab “Account” in users “Preferences”.
Allows users to login via a HTML form instead of using HTTP authentication.
Enables users to register a new account. It adds a “Register” link on metanav, the same menu bar as the “Login” link.
Adding or changing an email address will trigger an email with a verification code to enter, to approve it is really users own email address, and user account priviledges cut down until successful verification.
In order to use the Account Manager plugin, while logged in as a user with TRAC_ADMIN rights, use the new “Admin” link on the menubar.
Once in, you might want to enable the permissions to allow the “authenticated” user group permissions. For instance, if you remove the anonymous group from TICKET_MODIFY, and WIKI_MODIFY, and add the “authenticated” group instead, only authenticated, logged-in (registered) users can perform ticket modifications and wiki editing.
About i18n/l10n support
The development version of this plugin is prepared for localization.
But English message texts are still the (POSIX) default. If this isn't your preferred language, you can
- look, 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).
Top translations: Trac_Plugin-L10N » acct_mgr
Preparing the plugin from source requires no additional steps for compiling message catalog files. Only to include translations marked as
# fuzzy by the translator, 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 know Trac issue Babel has to be installed prior to Trac, to get it all working as expected.
Again, for more details see the l10n cookbook page for Trac plugins.
