Hello, can you explain me how can I authenticate users in a external database? Should I inherit eZUser and overwrite methods or anything more?

Thank you very much indeed!

Hi

I believe your question is a bit off-topic in this forum, but I will try to answer it anyway.

What exactly do you want to accomplish? You want to check another database when users are trying to log in on your eZ Publish website and if the user exists in the external database, then create it on your eZ Publish site and log him in?

Hi Kristof, all we need is authenticate against an external database instead of using the eZ database users.

We don't want to map the users on the eZ database because there are thousands of users managed with other external tools.

We need to assign eZ users groups to our users for using roles, sections, etc.

I don't know if overwritting some methods of eZUser is enough to manage the users sessions.

Is possible to manage the user info using session variables?

Thank you very much indeed!
