#933 new enhancement
Plugins should have a way to redirect to the login page
|Reported by:||Steve||Owned by:|
I am writing a plugin that requires that the user be logged in before accessing the media home page. However, because I am hooking to the "media_home_context," I am only able to modify the context, which, as far as I can tell cannot cause a redirect. The only way that I can see to do this redirect currently is to raise an exception that is handled by forwarding the user to the login page, but I could not find an appropriate existing exception.
A 401 error may be appropriate, but according to RFC 7235, the server must send a WWW-Authenticate Header if it responds with a 401 error, which does not make sense since MediaGoblin uses a login page.
Please forgive me if this functionality already exists and I missed it.
I can work on this if someone has a suggestion on how to provide this functionality.
