Web Server Authentication

Most web server implementations include a built-in authentication layer that, when enabled, manages user authentication and authorization. Users logging in to LogicNets applications will only gain access to an application after successfully passing the web server authorization. With most web server implementations, the server passes the logon user name to the called CGI (Computer Graphics Interface) application (in this case LogicNets) via the environment variables AUTH_USER and AUTH_TYPE.

The LogicNets authentication part allows your application to read the variables into the application context. This part has three parameters:
