Feature Proposal: Add a configuration wizard for authentication
Authentication is complex, and required multiple settings of login manager, etc. The Wizard would present a radio button for a typical type of site. When "applied" it would set the appropriate defaults in the other authentication tabs.
Description and Documentation
Radio button support
Add Radio button support, and pluggable wizard classes to configure:
- RADIO.pm - implements the Radio Button class
- RADIOCLASS.pm - implements a dynamic class selector similar to SELECTCLASS.pm
- resources/scripts.js - doesn't correctly handle the radio button groups - This is more a bug, but radio button groups are not a typed element, so the current code that tests elem.type = 'radio' is incorrect and never matchs. Also elements are set/cleared by index number in the group, not by element name.
is extended with the following type:
# **RADIO EXPERT LINEBREAK button,values,list**
requests that the buttons be rendered 1 per line, otherwise the buttons will be laid out horizontally
comma-separated list of radio buttons.
Configuration Wizard support
Add a new configuration class directory - Wizards.
RADIOCLASS renders a button for each of the classes found in the Wizards directory.
- <strike>setScenario: Sets other config variables for the scenario.</strike>
- getDescription: Returns scenario description for inclusion in the UI
than perl. )
- In Foswiki.spec, change the "User Logins" section to "User Authentication"
- Add a new first tab under "User Authentication" - Wizards
for example scenarios and configuration parameters that would be set when a scenario is "applied" using the Wizard.
An authentication related plugin would add a new class into the Wizards directory that would define a new scenario. (Or should this be a .spec file that drives the wizard?)

Changing to ParkedProposal
. The work to move to a ConfigurePlugin
with topic based wizards rest / json based configure, and eliminate the requirement for an initial configuration makes this irrelevant.
