Proxy portlet basic authentication

Hi, I have configured my orbeon server to work with tomcat basic authentication by modifiying web.xml as follow :


<security-constraint>
        <web-resource-collection>
            <web-resource-name>Form Builder + Form Runner Summary</web-resource-name>
            <url-pattern>/fr/orbeon/builder/*</url-pattern>
        </web-resource-collection>
        <auth-constraint>
            <role-name>administrator</role-name>
        </auth-constraint>
    </security-constraint>

<login-config>
    <auth-method>BASIC</auth-method>
</login-config>

When I try to access to /fr/orbeon/builder, the browser ask me the username and the password.


Im wondering if there  is a way to configure the OrbeonProxyPortlet to use Basic Authentication.

I tried to set the following parameters "oxf.http.proxy.username" and "oxf.http.proxy.password" in portlet.xml but it doesn"t work.


Have you an idea?


Thank you!

You should be able to set the following in portlet.xml:

        <init-param>
            <name>form-runner-url</name>
            <value>http://username:password@localhost:8080/orbeon/</value>
        </init-param>

Where you set `username` and `password` to your BASIC auth user information.

This aside, the `oxf.http.proxy.username` and `oxf.http.proxy.password` properties are unrelated to the proxy portlet. They are there to configure an HTTP proxy for Form Runner.
