crowd gitweb/gitolite ngix

I am newbie in DevOps and would like to learn from you more about Crowd REST API SSO application.


I am researching how to perform authentication/SSO via Crowd for /git resources where reverse proxy is NGIX.

It was nice to see what 95% of it is done via simple 

I would like to get attributes (groups) in the authorisation request.

$ curl -i -u git:APP_PWD --data-binary @pwd.json http://localhost:8095/crowd/rest/usermanagement/1/authentication?username=SAMPLE_USER&expand=attributes --header 'Content-Type: application/json' --header 'Accept: application/json'

It would be nice to hear if someone has tried to solve similar task and share experience and tips. It would be perfect to get groups in the single response. I'd check for crowd groups (e.g. git-rw and git-ro) and add set HTTP session parameter used by backend system.


Thank you!
