Fallback authentication

I am currently getting mojoPortal configured for my companies intranet/extranet.  A request has been made to add a set of users who don't have a active directory account to login.  We have a separate application with user names and logins of our employees.  I understand as of 2.3.8.5, I can setup database login with ldap fallback.  I have set that up.  My question, can I add another layer to that fallback?  My specific question is where do I put my code?  I can already check the username and password to the other application database, just need mojoPortal to run that code after the database and ldap checks.

Re: Fallback authentication

There is no magic way to do that without forking the code, which I do not recommend.

My advice would be to manually create those extra user accounts within mojoPortal as normal database user accounts.

Best,

Joe
