I am currently developping an app that involves a custom user backend to perform authentication. I need to call a REST api from this backend.
I have registered my backend using the container's UserManager like so...
...and things seem to work fine, communication with my REST api is successful.
However, when I attempt to login with correct credentials (I can see it is succesfull as my backend user is created in Owncloud's own storage), I am redirected to the login page with both username and password fields empty.
More precisely, here is what the inspector shows:
.../index.php/login?redirect_url=%252Findex.php%252Fapps%252Ffiles%252F -> 303
.../index.php/apps/files/ -> 303 (why??)
.../index.php/login?redirect_url=%252Findex.php%252Fapps%252Ffiles%252F -> 200 (back to square one...)
My backend currently implements the following methods : checkPassword, getDisplayName, userExists. It extends OC\User\Backend. My checkPassword implementation returns a uid in case of success and false otherwise, which I believe is the expected behavior.
I am testing using OC 10.0.0.12 setup with the ocdev tool.
Thank you very much for your help!
