Web Server Authentication

  • updated 5 mths ago

Most web server implementations include a built-in authentication layer that, when enabled, manages user authentication and authorization. Users logging in to LogicNets-based applications 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--which is LogicNets, in this case--using 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:

Parameter Description  Type/Option Input/Output
authentication_type AUTH_TYPE is stored in the specified data object. Data Object Output
authentication_username The value behind the slash (\) in AUTH_USER is stored in the specified data object; e.g. “mydomain\myuser” => “myuser”. Data Object Output
authentication_domain The value before the slash (\) in AUTH_USER is stored in the specified data object; e.g. “mydomain\myuser” => “mydomain”. Data Object Output
