The passwd app is a password management/changing utility for Horde which normally lives in a menu „my account“ in the toolbar.
While it has been released and is in production use at many sites, it is also under development to expand and improve the module.
Passwd provides fairly complete support for changing passwords via Poppassd, LDAP, Unix expect scripts, SMB/CIFS (under unix), Kolab, ADSI, Pine, Serv-U FTP, VMailMgr, vpopmail, SQL passwords and other more complicated setups.For a certain horde 5 installation, I needed to move the passwd app under the gearwheel/settings menu and out of the toolbar. After setting up passwd to work correctly, I added only one line to the
applications['passwd']['menu_parent'] = 'settings'; ?>
Everything you put into the menu labelled „settings“ automatically appears in the gearwheel menu.
This weekend, I visited the LinuxTag exhibition in Berlin, both to support my company’s booth and to talk to the horde guys whose booth was just on the opposite side, allowing easy coordination. As a result, I adopted the passwd tool which hasn’t yet been released for H4. It’s been packaged for the SUSE server:php:applications repository and will be part of the next pre-release of the upcoming Horde 4 Demo VM. First effort was adding a new backend driver ‚horde‘ which is just a proxy to horde’s configured authentication backend.
