    Having a problem with generating hash for hyperlink:
    I have a report r=1427. It has no parameters.
    From sha1('1427secret') I have b834372fab268025300408c2c4370b7215ba34a8.
    While the report has a hash 21df69b8474a63eaf0d233959254c767efa8e4b1.
    What am I doing wrong?

    The 'b834372fab268025300408c2c4370b7215ba34a8' is a valid hash for that report + seed. Did you check that the seed value is really 'secret'?

    Do you have the m-parameter in the second URL?

    Yes, the url contains m-parameter:
    But the sha1('1427m4secret') also provides incorrect hash.

    As for seed value I can see in server_side_files/sso/phpBB_sso these lines:

    define( 'MYDBR_SECRECT', 'secret');
    $hash = sha1( $user . $name . $groups . $email . $admin .$token . MYDBR_SECRECT );

    The seed value in use is defined in Environment settingsAuthentication / securityURL hash seed.

    The server_side_files/sso/phpBB_sso.php is just a sample Single Sign-On implementation for phpBB bulletin board software.

    Well, 'URL hash seed' field is empty in my case.

    Click the 'Randomize'-button to generate one or come up with your own seed value, save the changes and you are good to go.
