Authen::CAS::External - Authenticate with CAS servers as a browser would.
This documentation refers to version 0.08.
my $cas_auth = Authen::CAS::External->new( cas_url => 'https://cas.mydomain.com/', ); # Set the username and password $cas_auth->username('joe_smith'); $cas_auth->password('hAkaT5eR'); my $response = $cas_auth->authenticate(); my $secured_page = $ua->get($response->destination);
Provides a way to authenticate with a CAS server just as a browser would. This is useful with web scrapers needing to login to a CAS site.
This is fully object-oriented, and as such before any method can be used, the constructor needs to be called to create an object to work with.
This will construct a new object.
%attributesis a HASH where the keys are attributes (specified in the "ATTRIBUTES" section).
$attributesis a HASHREF where the keys are attributes (specified in the "ATTRIBUTES" section).
This is the URL of the CAS site excluding /login. This can be a URI object or a string of a URL.
This is the password to use for logging in to the CAS site. When set, this clears the "ticket_granting_cookie".
This is the ticket granting cookie to use for logging into the CAS site. This can be set to log in with just the cookie and no username or password.
This is the username to use for logging in to the CAS site. When set, this clears the "ticket_granting_cookie".
This method will authenticate against the CAS service using the already supplied username and password and will return a Authen::CAS::External::Response object.
This method takes a HASH with the following keys:
This is a Boolean of if the gateway parameter should be sent to the CAS server. The default is to not send any gateway parameter.
This is a Boolean of if the renew parameter should be sent to the CAS server. The default is to not send any renew parameter.
This is a string that specifies the service value to send to the CAS server. The default is to not send any service parameter.
This method is not actually used, but is required for classes to consume the Authen::CAS::External::UserAgent role as this class does. This method will return the currently set username and password to the user agent.
This method is not actually used but is required for classes to consume the Authen::CAS::External::UserAgent role as this class does. This method will return the currently set ticket granting cookie if the username requested matches the username set (and always should).
