Authenticating CCM PIN from external App

Hi all,

I am trying to find a way for an external Application that we have created to validate a user according the the CCM End user userid and PIN.

As far as i can see, the PIN is stored in an encrypted format. Are there any available APIs or methods that we could use to still authenticate via this PIN?

Thanks,

Kamran

Hi, I am afraid it does not work this way. Passwords and PINs are salted, probably with a dynamic string and the result is stored as an SHA-1 hash.
Why do you want to authenticate against the DB directly? You can use the authentication URL (for passwords, though AFAIK).

Hello,

Just to clarify, I wasnt trying to retreive the PIN etc. Just needed the application to authenticate using the PIN.

Ive actually found a doAuthenticateUser method that we can use to authenticate as part of the WSDL that should do the trick:

Hmm, that's nice. That would do the work.

Thanks for posting back the result.
