Authentication plugins changes in 3.8 version

Post by anabarcellos » Wed Oct 11, 2017 9:26 pm

Good afternoon, folks. After 3.8 version, we can't login by OpenAM anymore (plugin developed by an ex-colleague looong ago).

Since Joomla! needed some changes to LDAP plugin in 3.8.1 https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/co ... 56c56231cc I am taking for granted that we need to change something in our OpenAM plugin too.

I am not a coder and I can't understand what those changes mean. At the same time, we don't have anything similar to the refered changes in LDAP plugin to copy to our OpenAM plugin code.

Even if we needed to hire someone to fix it, before I have to understand what needs to be done (what should I ask for?). Can someone help me with this information?

Otherwise I will be stuck on 3.7.5 version :(

After many tests I got to the conclusion that the issue is related to PHP7 and not to Joomla version. The plugin still works fine with Joomla 3.8 in php 5.5.

Not sure if this is the cause or just a notice:
PHP Notice: Array to string conversion in .../plugins/authentication/openam/openam.php on line 70
Line 70 is:

Code: Select all

$response->$attributes[$name] = trim(substr($line, 28));
