# Additional Features

This fork contains additional features not found in the original:
* Proxied Hosts
* CAS Response Callbacks
* CAS Gateway
* Proxy Tickets (From Edmund Crewe)

## Proxied Hosts

You will need to setup middleware to handle the use of proxies.

This middleware needs to be added before the django ``common`` middleware.

## CAS Response Callbacks

To store data from CAS, create a callback function that accepts the ElementTree object from the
proxyValidate response. There can be multiple callbacks, and they can live anywhere. Define the
callback(s) in ````:


and create the functions in ``path/to/``:

def callbackfunction(tree):
username = tree[0][0].text

user, user_created = User.objects.get_or_create(username=username)
profile, created = user.get_profile() = tree[0][1].text
profile.position = tree[0][2].text

## CAS Gateway

To use the CAS Gateway feature, first enable it in settings. Trying to use it without explicitly
enabling this setting will raise an ImproperlyConfigured:


Then, add the ``gateway`` decorator to a view:

from cas.decorators import gateway

def foo(request):
return render(request, 'foo/bar.html')

## Custom Forbidden Page

To show a custom forbidden page, set ``CAS_CUSTOM_FORBIDDEN`` to a ````. Otherwise,
a generic ``HttpResponseForbidden`` will be returned.

## Proxy Tickets
