Member Function Documentation

◆ getAuthenticationRequests()

MediaWiki\Auth\AuthenticationProvider::getAuthenticationRequests (   $action,
array  $options 

Return the applicable list of AuthenticationRequests.

Possible values for $action depend on whether the implementing class is also a PreAuthenticationProvider, PrimaryAuthenticationProvider, or SecondaryAuthenticationProvider.

  • ACTION_LOGIN: Valid for passing to beginAuthentication. Called on all providers.
  • ACTION_CREATE: Valid for passing to beginAccountCreation. Called on all providers.
  • ACTION_LINK: Valid for passing to beginAccountLink. Called on linking primary providers only.
  • ACTION_CHANGE: Valid for passing to AuthManager::changeAuthenticationData to change credentials. Called on primary and secondary providers.
  • ACTION_REMOVE: Valid for passing to AuthManager::changeAuthenticationData to remove credentials. Must work without additional user input (i.e. without calling loadFromSubmission). Called on primary and secondary providers.

array$optionsOptions are:
  • username: User name related to the action, or null/unset if anon.
    • ACTION_LOGIN: The currently logged-in user, if any.
    • ACTION_CREATE: The account creator, if non-anonymous.
    • ACTION_LINK: The local user being linked to.
    • ACTION_CHANGE: The user having data changed.
    • ACTION_REMOVE: The user having data removed. If you leave the username property of the returned requests empty, this will automatically be copied there (except for ACTION_CREATE where it wouldn't really make sense).

Implemented in MediaWiki\Auth\TemporaryPasswordPrimaryAuthenticationProvider, MediaWiki\Auth\ResetPasswordSecondaryAuthenticationProvider, MediaWiki\Auth\PrimaryAuthenticationProvider, MediaWiki\Auth\EmailNotificationSecondaryAuthenticationProvider, MediaWiki\Auth\ConfirmLinkSecondaryAuthenticationProvider, MediaWiki\Auth\CheckBlocksSecondaryAuthenticationProvider, MediaWiki\Auth\AbstractPreAuthenticationProvider, and MediaWiki\Auth\AbstractPasswordPrimaryAuthenticationProvider.
