    Hi Luigi

    Magnolia handels login via JAAS [1]. You would have to write your own jaas module which will most likely extend info.magnolia.jaas.sp.jcr.JCRAuthenticationModule (or AbstractLoginModule). And you will probably also need to write your own user manager class extending Maybe you’ll need your own user class as well, extending

    Then you’ll have to patch it all together with configuration:
    - the authentication module needs to be configured in the JAAS chain (in the jaas.config file)
    - the user manager has to be added in the magnolia configuration under config:/server/security/userManagers

    But this is definitely no entry level topic. I had no clue about JAAS when I tackled the task and it took me some head scratching before I got it running.

    Good luck!

    Hi Will,
    Would it be possible to provide the code/example of your Module/project.
    I am not able to connect the dots.
