Download and Installation

Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.


Custom Auth-Plugin logging

The plugin might fail to log logins made through auth plugins other than authplain. Plugin authors can make their plugins compatible by emitting a PLUGIN_LOGLOG_LOG event whenever they want to log a login/logout action. The event requires two fields in the $data array: message for the log message and user for the affected user.

Here's an example from the SalesForce Auth Plugin:

$log = array('message' => 'logged in via Salesforce', 'user' => $this->user);

The message can contain whatever you want to log. However, if you use the following strings in your message, an appropriate icon is associated with your message:

message part icon
logged off
logged in permanently
logged in
