Code Health

CAS client for Django. This is K-State's fork of the original, which lives at https://bitbucket.org/cpcc/django-cas/overview. This fork is actively maintaned and includes several new features.

Current version: 0.8.5

https://github.com/kstateome/django-cas

Install

See the document at Bitbucket

Settings.py for CAS

Add the following to middleware if you want to use CAS::

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
'django_cas.middleware.CASMiddleware',
)

Add these to settings.py to use the CAS Backend::

CAS_SERVER_URL = "Your Cas Server"
CAS_LOGOUT_COMPLETELY = True

Additional Features

This fork contains additional features not found in the original:

  • Proxied Hosts
  • CAS Response Callbacks
  • CAS Gateway
  • Proxy Tickets (From Edmund Crewe)

Proxied Hosts

You will need to setup middleware to handle the use of proxies.

Add a setting PROXY_DOMAIN of the domain you want the client to use. Then add

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
'django_cas.middleware.ProxyMiddleware',
)

This middleware needs to be added before the django common middleware.

CAS Response Callbacks

To store data from CAS, create a callback function that accepts the ElementTree object from the proxyValidate response. There can be multiple callbacks, and they can live anywhere. Define the callback(s) in settings.py:

CAS_RESPONSE_CALLBACKS = (
    'path.to.module.callbackfunction',
    'anotherpath.to.module.callbackfunction2',
)

and create the functions in path/to/module.py:

def callbackfunction(tree):
    username = tree[0][0].text

    user, user_created = User.objects.get_or_create(username=username)
    profile, created = user.get_profile()

    profile.email = tree[0][1].text
    profile.position = tree[0][2].text
    profile.save()

CAS Gateway

To use the CAS Gateway feature, first enable it in settings. Trying to use it without explicitly enabling this setting will raise an ImproperlyConfigured:

CAS_GATEWAY = True

Then, add the gateway decorator to a view:

from django_cas.decorators import gateway

@gateway()
def foo(request):
    #stuff
    return render(request, 'foo/bar.html')

Custom Forbidden Page

To show a custom forbidden page, set CAS_CUSTOM_FORBIDDEN to a path.to.some_view. Otherwise, a generic HttpResponseForbidden will be returned.

Proxy Tickets

This fork also includes Edmund Crewe's proxy ticket patch: http://code.google.com/r/edmundcrewe-proxypatch/source/browse/django-cas-proxy.patch
