Logging into MRE

We need to bypass the WebFOCUS MRE login page, yet be able to authenticate the user / password being passed in and allow the user to see only his / her report(s).



RE: Logging into MRE

The MRE login page is a simple HTML form.  You can always rewrite that or call the form from another programs as long as you pass the specfic parameters from somewhere.  If you bypass the login page, how are you doing authentication?

RE: Logging into MRE

We plan to query an Oracle table which will contain user id, password and reports accessbile per user as well as other validation criteria.

Basically, we want to user our Oracle tables to determine accessibility rather than usin MRE.

We already have another HTML form.  The problem is tieing the pieces together.



RE: Logging into MRE

You can try using an MRE exit routine which can be used to validate against anything. In essence you write a program which can issue JDBC calls to any database.
