Shibboleth Login Dokuwiki Plugin

:!: Moved to


This plugin provides simple “lazy sessions” initiation for the Shibboleth Authentication Backend. It intercepts the native LOGIN action in Dokuwiki, which shows the login form, and redirects the user to the proper Shibboleth handler instead.



  1. download the pack
  2. unpack it anywhere
  3. copy the shiblogin directory to the lib/plugins directory of your Dokuwiki installation


Without any configuration the plugin authomatically determines the URL of the Shibboleth login handler:



  • HOSTNAME - the hostname of the web server
  • REFERER_URL - the original URL, where the session initiation has been started

Through configuration directives it is possible to set different parts of that URL or the whole URL itself. For more info, see the packed example configuration file - conf/example-shibplugin-conf.php.
