Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 217906
Use GIS support for forgot login/password and privacy statement when its ready
Last modified: 2008-10-21 03:12:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Ok, here's our proposed plan to address this issue:
* Forgot login/password text:
could the GIS-provided APIs to grab these:
"So the UserService is the service that provides all the methods. RHN should be
pretty familiar with that at this point. We use the findByEmail(String email)
call to find lost logins and changePassword(String system, String login) to
change the password if they can provide their email" (matthicks)
Note: "none of the services are accessible to the world, but if RHN has a
protected proxy layer, there are services available to trusted clients. But the
XML server is such a proxy"
GIS plans of attack here:
are not 100% sure that all the required locales are translated though. " if you
make the Terms API call, you would send a locale - probably the machine local
since you won't be using the browser, right? the web service has the 'standard'
locale format as a String - "en_US", "zh_TW", etc (getPrivacyText xmlrpc call?)
The links are removed for these in bz:210948, they are now buttons with popup
texts or text labels.
privacy statement: currently talks directly to rhn backend server and gets
privacy statement, but this should be replace with a server call to TGIS API for
forgot login/password: this is just a text pointing to the lostPassowrd link,
probably we could replace with GIS api call to retrieve these.
for reference the links for the above were fixed in bz:210948
this is a hosted side issue..sat does'nt deal with GIS API
Done as part of SSO integration
