Anyone? The end goal is to integrate this with CoSign:

Any help would be great. Even some more info on the inner workings of
iChain would be useful so I can draw some comparisons.

Does anyone have a mini-howto on getting proxy auth set up with 2.5?
This blocks my company from being able to use Ubuntu 14.04, so I'd like
to get this resolved as soon as possible. Any help would be greatly

I successfully upgraded it to OpenSUSE 12.2, and OBS 2.4. At that time,
since LDAP support was removed, I added the following to the _webui_

AuthBasicProvider ldap
AuthzLDAPAuthoritative off
AuthName "OBS"
AuthType Basic
AuthLDAPBindPassword XXXX
RequestHeader set X-username %{AUTHENTICATE_UID}e
RequestHeader set X-email %{AUTHENTICATE_MAIL}e
require valid-user

and turned on
proxy_auth_mode: :on

However, since webui and api are now one, I put that in the updated
obs.conf vhost file which came with 2.5.

Instead, I now get a forever loop of username/password prompt, and this
is in the logs:

I have this in the config:
frontend_host: "localhost"
frontend_port: 443
frontend_protocol: "https"

Any ideas? This setup was working on 2.4, but I don't want to be in the
position of being behind again, so I want to get 2.5 working.



PS There was some fun rails stuff during the 2.4->2.5 upgrade..needed to
hit "1" a few times when doing the obs-api upgrade..
