New Drupal Modules
This is another sandbox phone module written for #1812184: [meta] Rewrite and merge phone and cck_phone. More details are in the README.txt file.
Installation is straightforward. All settings are on the Fetcher settings for your feed.Overview
This module provides support for more advanced authentication mechanisms
using the Drupal Feeds module. http://drupal.org/project/feeds
Most notably, this can be used for feeds requiring a 2-step authentication
where the first request passes authentication credentials, and then the
server returns a form of security tokens to be passed in future reqeusts.
The credentials, and return token keys to look for is fully configurable
in the Fetcher settings for your Feed. The communication protocol is also
configurable, plain &url=var and json posting is supported currently.
- Your feed requires a more advanced authentication mechanism than what Feeds Basic HTTP Fetcher provides.
- Your feed requires specific key|value pairs for authentication.
- Your feed requires a JSON post of credentials to authenticate.
- Your feed uses a 2-step authentication. You post credentials, it authenticates and returns security tokens to you which you then have to pass in subsequent calls.
It is reccomended to use this along with the Feeds JSONPath Parser
when using json returns.
