next important steps

  • interaction between TWiki server to ADFS server defining/have code.
  • [1] cache the username/password local to TWiki instance.. this must be standard Perl modules to interact with LDAP server
  • [2] cache the group information toTWiki INstance from ADFS server
  • [3] Add these subrouties in ADFSPasswdUser.pm and ADFSUserMapping.pm modules

The most important is - defining the right cUID.. in your case.. since you are going to use Email as loginname.. so just keep cUID as loginname... everything gets simplified

Inheritance from Sopan

package TWiki::Users::DemoPasswdUser; use base 'TWiki::Users::Password';

package TWiki::Users::DemoUserMapping; use base 'TWiki::UserMapping';

The TWiki::UserMapping deals with TWiki::User.pm.. internally or User.pm - deals with new modules when TWiki does authentication / usermaping etc


  • Re use module code
  • write UserMapping and PasswordManager
  • look for best caching solution


  1. create Users/ADFSUserMapping.pm Done
    • Users/ADFSUserMapping.pm would have to inherit from TWikiUserMapping.pm:
    • create template for the new UserMapping.pm Done
      • Package TWiki::Users::ADFSUserMapping; Done
      • use base' TWiki::Users::TWikiUserMapping'; Done
      • create the “sub isInList” function, Done
  2. write new “sub isInList” function
  3. Modify lib/LocalSite.cfg to point to this new module
    • $TWiki::cfg{UserMappingManager} = 'TWiki::Users::ADFSUserMapping';';
  4. write PasswordManager, point again in LocalSite.cfg
  5. the new module inherit from base module written there

Packaging as Twiki Addon in Twiki.org Loginname to create WikiName:

  1. inherit “sub getLoginName”
  2. inherit “sub getWikiName”

this gives the WikiName

reading ENV
these can be read using CGI variables.. TWiki is just another Perl/CGI application and cgi handle is avaialable almost at all functions.. at every point within twiki
