Subject [users@httpd] httpd reverse proxy pass username per http_header
Date Sun, 18 Jan 2015 16:29:50 GMT

I'm trying to put httpd as reverse-proxy in front of a third party java 
application (running in tomcat) to handle authentication in httpd.
The thirdparty app claims to be able to accept the user (that is 
authenticated before it hits the app) via http header (I can configure 
the http variable where the username is stored.)

Is it possible to pass the username via http_header using httpd?
Out of the box I only found authorization which is base64 encoded
