mod_authnz_crowd

Does this set REMOTE_USER ?

I have a application that runs a cgi (py) that needs to pick up the username that has signed in against crowd. Please advise

Hi Marcel,

Yes it does.

This is an example of how it looks on the access_log:

172.16.28.1 - apache [25/Mar/2014:18:48:04 -0300] "GET /repositorio/ HTTP/1.1" 401 472 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.9; rv:28.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/28.0"

172.16.28.1 - admin [25/Mar/2014:18:48:08 -0300] "GET /repositorio/ HTTP/1.1" 401 472 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.9; rv:28.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/28.0"

As you can see, one access was made with apache user, and the other with admin user. With PHP you could retrieve the user with the variable $_SERVER ['REMOTE_USER']

Best regards,

Felipe Alencastro
