The Sonar PAM Plugin enables the delegation of Sonar authentication to underlying PAM subsystem. The plugin works on *nix box with Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM).

Only password-checking is done against PAM. Authorization (access control) is still fully managed in Sonar. A Sonar account must be created first for each new user wishing to use Sonar. The Sonar administrator should also assign the user to the desired groups in order to grant him necessary rights. If exists, the password in the Sonar account will be ignored as the external system password will override it.
