Append password to URL?

Append password to URL?

Append password to URL?

I have grabbed a link to a document using intranet client.  When you open a new browser, and paste it in there, it asks for a login then redirects to the document.  I want to create a read only user and append their login(username, password, domain) to the URL so I can have anonymous users view the documents without being asked for a login.  Anyone know how to do this?  Thanks.


RE: Append password to URL?

There is no facility in documentum to allow the username and password to be passed on the url.

You could create your own servlet that would take in a document, username and password
This servlet could log in as the readonly user and redirect to the document

RE: Append password to URL?

I just realised this is a very old thread!!

RE: Append password to URL?

I'm new to Documentum, but if it uses the standard https validation protocol, you can prepend the username and password to the url like this:

mypassword@www.theaddress.com/thefile.asp" target="_blank">https://myusername:mypassword@www.theaddress.com/thefile.asp

Like I said, I'm new, so I don't know if this would work, but it might be worth a try.
