Description

As it exists currently, the LDAP authentication mechanism is reused for a number of authentication scenarios. It is not always clear why a login prompt is being presented (is this for searching? uploading an actor to the repository? etc...).

History

#1 Updated by ben leinfelder over 11 years ago

Now that some of the threading issues are being hammered out, this should be easier to work with.
Adding a message area that can hold text that describes the resource needing authentication would be a logical next step. The authentication "domain" is already shown in the frame title of the dialogue box.

#2 Updated by ben leinfelder over 10 years ago

Now the authentication domain is missing from the title bar. This should be readded - as soon as authentication is working again

#3 Updated by ben leinfelder over 10 years ago

Readded the Domain to the title
