      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Hi,

      our company also want to use Confluence 2.1.x.

      But we have an issue:

      Intranet Integration

      All Users für web based Applications have a single URL
      https://intranet.mycompany.com running apache 2.0.x and mod_auth_ldap.

      Currently, all intranet apllications are using the environment variable
      REMOTE_USER for user mapping which is passed from apache through
      the webserver module to the java/php/perl application.

      Once, the user is logged in, everything is fine.
      The java/php/perl application knows the
      user = REMOTE_USER and can make the necessary
      LDAP Requests for the user.

      Login screens for Apllcations are not necessary at all.
      For mediawiki, there's an example in the Extension "Auto_Login_via_REMOTE_USER".

      It would be great, to have a configuration variable like

      REMOTE_USER=true within the Confluence Web Admin

      to use this simple feature in Confluence and
      to make it simple to integrate in existing Intranet and Extranet Environments.

      Of course, it's necessary to configure confluence LDAP integration, that
      confluence uses the same user oids as the apache mod_auth_ldap.

      Regards, Thorleif Wiik
