Subject [users@httpd] LDAP and AUTHENTICATE_[attribute] environment variables
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2005 22:33:48 GMT
The current documentation for the AuthLDAPUrl directive includes
the following:


attribute  The attribute to search for. Although RFC 2255 allows a
            comma-separated list of attributes, only the first attribute
            will be used, no matter how many are provided.

I have found that this is no longer (2.0.53) true in part.  If you
code multiple comma-separeted attributes then the CGI environment
will be populated with one variable named AUTHENTICATE_attribute for
each attribute coded in the URL, containing the value retrieved from
the LDAP server.

This is VERY USEFUL, but I hesitate to set things up to depend on it
if it's not 'official' and may go away in the future.  Can someone
tell me if this feature is here to stay, and if its omission from
the doc is just due to lack of resources, or if it's going to remain

Or, did I miss where it's documented?
