8.3. Basic Authentication

Value for $g_login_method: BASIC_AUTH
When MantisBT is configured to use basic auth, it automatically detects the logged in user and checks if they are already registered in MantisBT, if not, then a new account is automatically created for the username.
The password length is limited to the size of the underlying database field (DB_FIELD_SIZE_PASSWORD constant), currently 32 characters.
