We're currently working on an external LDAP authentication for the sync app and webdav. While I'm able to authenticate with LDAP, I am unsure of how to login to owncloud without knowing the users owncloud password. I've been looking through the source code, but I can't find where login occurs in the LDAP module. We don't want to use the LDAP module included in owncloud.
Basically, I want to know if there is a way to retrieve an unencrypted password from the owncloud DB? If the encrypted password in the DB would work for logins? or if there is a way to login a user after LDAP authentication with only a username?
