webclient: LDAP not working -- but works for stand alone client

Bug Description

EG version: 3.03
OpenSRF version: 3.0.0

When logging into Evergreen using the webclient, LDAP authentication is not working. I can login to the webclient using the local evergreen password.

I can also login to the old stand-alone staff client or the OPAC via LDAP.

Noting that at present the web staff client is simply not checking whether the auth_proxy is active or attempting to use open-ils.auth_proxy.login. Following the example in Open-ILS/xul/staff_client/chrome/content/auth/session.js or Open-ILS/src/perlmods/lib/OpenILS/WWW/EGCatLoader.pm would serve to add it.

Fix pushed:


One caveat to this branch, however, is it only works seamlessly if the open-ils.auth_proxy service is running. (It doesn't have to be enabled). When the auth_proxy service is not running, the API call fails deep in the OpenSRF JS code, preventing fall-back to standard login. I have a fix for that too and will open an OpenSRF LP bug.

Because of the caveat noted in my last comment, I'm going to target this bug to 3.2 beta only for now, since back-porting it could cause breakage for sites not running the auth_proxy service.

Also note the EG branch has 2 commits, one for the auth proxy additions and one to also improve Evergreen transport error handling.

Works for me, and pushed to master for inclusion in 3.2-beta. I've added targets for 3.0 and 3.1 but am not backporting for the moment pending dealing with the OpenSRF patch.
