    ep_headerauth

    Etherpad plugin to use a reverse proxy's HTTP headers for authentication.

    If the X-Authenticated-User header is present in the HTTP request coming from your reverse proxy, then the user is considered to have already been authenticated by your reverse proxy. The header's value is used as the user's username.

    If the X-Authenticated-Name header is present, the user's displayed name is forced to that header's value.

    The headers used by the plugin can be customized.

    Configuration

    In your settings.json:

    {
      // ...
      "trustProxy": true,
      "headerauth": {
        // Defaults to "x-authenticated-user"
        "username_header": "x-authenticated-user",
        // Defaults to "x-authenticated-name"
        "displayname_header": "x-authenticated-name"
      },
      // ...
    }
