Hi there i am currently thinking about connecting our services to using ldap.
This would offer you to use one account of all webservices.
Unfortunatelly this is not possible to use this forum as the “startpoint”.
I am thinking about add an
create account button to the website which redirects to a google like signup page.
This forum will only support logins, then.
Your account would grant you access to:
- this forum
- our mediagoblin
- our upcoming board for todo stuff
- our cloud
Maybe i connect also a few tchncs.de services.
But why do i create a public thread for this?
I don’t know how fast i would be able to allow alternate sign up methods like twitter, google and what not like this forum does.
On the user side it might be a problem since we also have young people on board who may run in trouble on a “basic” sign up side. This thing is hard to estimate for me and i looking forward for your opinions.
The mentioned ldap server is nearly ready but let’s wait what you folks think about
Note: how awesome this feature will be realised and how fast every service is connected and, and, … ist not yet clear.
