DESCRIPTION

This module implements the "check_cleartext" method of the Authen module in DJabberd. Your database schema should support checking the credentials in one query.

CONFIGURATION

The following keys are used in the configuration.

dsn

This is the DBI data source string, first parameter to DBI->connect. This option is mandatory.

user

The database user name, second parameter to DBI->connect.

pass

The database password, third parameter to DBI->connect.

query

The SQL query that will be prepared for each authentication. You should use the standard placeholder mark (?) to send the arguments. The connection will be accepted if this query returns at least one row and will be rejected if no rows are returned.

args

This allows you to define the order of the arguments for your prepared statement. You can even use an argument more than once. The following keys are accepted and will be replaced by the correct value: login, password, password_sha1_hex, password_sha1_base64, password_md5_hex, password_md5_base64.
