rlm_always — FreeRADIUS Module

Description

The rlm_always module provides a simple way to "always" return a value during the processing of a configuration section.

The main configuration item is rcode, which sets the return code that this instantiation of the module will return. The default, if none specified, is 'fail'.

The valid options for rcode are as follows:

reject
reject the user;
fail
a failure has occurred;
ok
success;
handled
the request has been handled: processing should be stopped and the response sent;
invalid
request is invalid;
userlock
the user account has been locked out;
notfound
the user account cannot be found;
noop
no-op: nothing has happened;
updated
the request has been updated.

Configuration

rcode = <code>
This module will always return with the code specified, as listed in the table above. If unspecified, the default is 'fail'.
simulcount = <n>
If this module is used in the session{} section, the simulcount option simulates the user having 'n' current sessions. The default is to not override the number of sessions.
mpp = <yes|no>
If set to yes, and this module is used in the session{} section, this simulates the user having multilink sessions. The default is 'no'.

Example

modules {
  ...

  # instantiate the "always" module with the name "ok"

  always ok {

	# return code for this instantiation is "ok":

	rcode = ok

  }

  ...

}


authorize {
  ...

  redundant {
     sql1          # try to find the user in sql1

     sql2          # try to find the user in sql2

     # the default here would be to fail, but...

     ok            # if still not found, it's OK.

  }
  ...

}
