Is there any documentation on how user authentication works in latest nextcloud? I’ve tried searching for such information but I didn’t find anything super clear.
I’d like to find out especially how I can disable the password prompt when accessing the admin area or user settings, in order to fix this app: https://github.com/paroga/user_discourse
I tried comparing that to https://github.com/nextcloud/user_saml but there doesn’t seem to be a magical auth backend property that disables that password prompt which makes that app unusable.
By adding this over the controller method, you should be able to disable auth:
Which controller method are you referring to? Are you referring to how to make a plugin action (or whatever nextcloud calls it) that doesn’t need authentication? That’s not what I want, I want to fix that auth plugin so that all the inbuilt nextcloud pages that ask for password confirmation, don’t need the password confirmation.
I thought you only wanted to disable auth for that controller. In that case I don’t know then. I’m struggling as well making sense of the OC api.
