#summary Authentication via external script/process
#labels Stage-Alpha

= Introduction =

Allow client authentication to be handled by an external script/process.

= Configuration =

As with all auth modules, there is no need to add this to modules_enabled. Simply add in the global section, or for the relevant hosts:

    authentication = "external"

These options are specific to mod_auth_external:

||external_auth_protocol||May be "generic" or "ejabberd" (the latter for compatibility with ejabberd external auth scripts. Default is "generic".||
||external_auth_command||The command/script to execute.||
