Authenticate users against outside db?
We have an existing home-grown support site that we want to integrate with a ticketing system, Redmine for example. This support site runs off of a MySQL database and includes a user table. Can Redmine be configured to authenticate users against our existing user table?
You'd probably need to write a plugin for that.
Alternatively, set up an LDAP solution and integrate your support site against that. Might be less of a hassle, and you'd be using something much more standardized.
