Summary0006391: authenticate from phpbb
DescriptionIt would be nice to be able to authenticate from a phpbb database.

Integration of bugtrackers, wikis, and forums are becoming far more common.

Requiring users to register multiple times to get access to all of a site's features is cumbersome and counterproductive.

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki, [^] http://www.splitbrain.org/Programming/PHP/DokuWiki/index.php, [^] etc have plugins or modifications to allow you to authenticate from an existing phpbb database.

It would be nice if mantis could do the same.

Checkout the forums, I think someone implemented this before.

The previous phpbb mod was only for phpbb 2.x and mantis 1.0 RC.
The auth, formatting/templating is totally different for phpbb 3.x and the packages provided by the previous mod are stale, and do not work.

Please see http://www.mantisbt.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=21486 [^] regarding more information on the issue.
