View Full Version : QAuthenticator - how to allow third-party authentication mechanisms?

17th October 2015, 22:12

I want to extend QAuthenticator to allow third-party authentication mechanisms but I think that structure of QAuthenticator class do not allow for that.
Is there any method to extend existing QAuthenticator authentication mechanisms?

Doesn't appear that any of the methods are virtual, so it would be difficult to derive from it. You can, of course, always go into the source code, change those methods and rebuild the network library. Then you could derive from it and wrap your third-party authenticator.
