[CLOSED] URL w/credentials to login and run a fex in v8.0.05m
Hi All,

I tried to search on this topic and found some promising things, but we get a hit/miss success.
Most of the time we get access denied (runitem), but mysteriously it works sometimes.

Does anyone know the proper URL formation needed to do this in wf v8 ?

We have a need to interface to webfocus from another application. The security is already set in the host application (ldap account/password is being passed from the host app to webfocus).

See this post ...

If you don't want to pay for that license, I remember an IBI rep talking about setting up an alternate security zone in order to do this kind of thing. You would have to see if that would work with your particular setup by contacting one yourself.
