Hooking into the login process

Postby 10119metux » Tue Mar 27, 2012 1:23 pm

Hi folks,
is there any API for hooking into the login process w/o changing the core ?
For one of our customers we needed to ask for an additional token on login.

We've modified the core to run through our own JSP pages for that.
While this works, it's obviously not ideal. So I'd like to know if there's

some more standard approach for that, without having to patch the core.

have you considered implementing your own login? Perhaps you could validate the entered details using a SOAP AuthRequest and then complete a successful login using preauth.
I've just been struggling with preauth so it's foremost in my mind at the moment!
