31 = Authentication Mechanisms =
32
33 XWiki Standard embeds several authentication mechanisms by default:
34
35 * Form authentication
36 * Basic authentication
37
38 In addition XWiki allows you to create your own authentication extension in order to integrate with any custom mechanism you might be using already (SSO, etc).
39
40 Additional authenticators are available as extensions on [[extensions.xwiki.org>>extensions:Main.WebHome]]:

43 #set ($xwql = "from doc.object(ExtensionCode.ExtensionClass) as extension, doc.object(EXOExtensionCode.ExtensionClass) as exoextension where extension.category = 'authenticator'")
44 #set ($extensions = $services.query.xwql($xwql).setWiki('extensions').execute())
45 #foreach ($extension in $extensions)
46 * [[extensions:$extension]]
47 #end
48 {{/velocity}}

50 {{info}}
51 Note that several extensions are not yet categorized in the ##authenticator## category on [[extensions.xwiki.org>>extensions:Main.WebHome]] and this is why they don't appear in the list above. For the moment, here's list of all extensions having "Authenticator" in the name:
52
53 {{velocity}}
54 #set ($xwql = "from doc.object(ExtensionCode.ExtensionClass) as extension, doc.object(EXOExtensionCode.ExtensionClass) as exoextension where extension.name like '%Authenticator%'")
55 #set ($extensions = $services.query.xwql($xwql).setWiki('extensions').execute())
56 #foreach ($extension in $extensions)
57 * [[extensions:$extension]]
58 #end
