User Role From HTTP Header

This module extends the functionality of auth_from_http_remote_user as well as base_user_role. It gives the possibility when the authentication of the remote user has been successful, to assign roles to the new authenticated user, based on the content of the HTTP header field HTTP_REMOTE_ROLE.


Install this module like any other module.


When the module auth_from_http_remote_user is installed and working. You need to tweak the HTTP header the same way by adding a field HTTP_REMOTE_ROLE. This field must contain the codes referencing the pre defined user roles that will be assigned to the user. It can contain multiple codes separated by a comma.

Those codes can be assigned to preconfigured user roles directly on ther edition page.
