    Question how do I programmatically verify user's password?

    Greetings,

    Is there a Zimbra SOAP API to verify user's password?

    That is I have a user name and a password, how do I know that the
    password is valid?

    Thanks

    Default Maybe this command is useful for you

    you can use this command to have a try:

    [zimbra@mail ~]$ cd /opt/zimbra/cyrus-sasl/sbin/
    [zimbra@mail sbin]$ ./testsaslauthd -u user@domain -p password
    0: OK "Success."

    Preauth - Zimbra :: Wiki

    The SOAP interface uses the standard AuthRequest message, but instead of passing in a password, you specify <preauth> data.

    The auth token will be return in the AuthResponse. At which point, you can "inject" it into the app via the URL interface.

    Thanks for the reply, but I do need to *verify* the user password once I am presented with it.
    Pre-authentication is not exactly what I need.

    Do you have other suggesstions?
