EMWCon Spring 2017/Upgrading to AuthManager

Upgrading to AuthManager

Presenter     Gergő Tisza
Event Enterprise MediaWiki Conference (EMWCon) Spring 2017
Date and time

The authentication system of MediaWiki has been completely rewritten in 1.27 to better support external identity providers, multi-step registration and login, APIs and peaceful coexistence of multiple authentication extensions. Third-party code needs to be updated to take advantage of the new features (or, in some cases, to work properly). The talk will introduce the new authentication system and give advice and some examples on how to upgrade. (Slides)
