ignore_auth_case does not work for login

My environment:

  • I've set ignore_auth_case to true.
  • The usernames in my authentication file are all lowercase.
  • I use the AdminPlugin.
  • In my http-configuration I've got "AuthType Basic".

The problem: I need to type my login name in lowercase. If I type some upper case letters, login fails. So I guess ignore_auth_case doesn't work.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

The ignore_auth_case setting only affects how Trac internally deals with usernames, it does not affect the behavior of Apache's authentication. Since Apache's Basic authentication is case sensitive, that setting will not change that behavior. It is a workaround to allow Trac to deal with authentication mechanisms like Windows domain authentication that is already not case-sensitive.
