Plone PAS plugin for adding roles (or groups) to anonymous or logged-in visitors looking for HTTP Headers.
AutoRoleFromHostHeader PAS Plugin
Add roles to (anonymous or logged-in) visitors based on browser HTTP header
The AutoRoleFromHostHeader plugin allows to assign roles to users looking at client HTTP headers.
There is an extraction and authentication plugin included, to enable additional roles for anonymous users. They are required since PAS does not support roles (or properties or groups) for anonymous users. You can disable these interfaces if only logged-in users should get additional roles.
AutoRoleFromHostHeader furthermore provides a groups plugin interface, allowing you to assign groups instead of roles.
The plugin is configured by editing the Header name, regexp and roles property on the plugin's Properties screen. Each line represents a mapping from an header value (using a regexp match) to one or more roles. The format is as follows:
http_header_name; regular expression; role[, role ...]
Assign groups, not roles
This plugin can be used to assign groups instead of roles if used as a group plugin instead of a role plugin:
http_header_name; regular expression; group
If you have AutoRoleFromHostHeader configured for anonymous users and come from a network matching one of its rules, you will NOT be able to log in with an account from a higher-up user folder. This is because AutoRole authenticates the Anonymous User which stops the lookup process.
