Subject RE: Still having problem retrieving user value from ISAPI Filter for authentication
Date Tue, 22 Jun 2010 13:10:35 GMT
Question.  I never setup a custom Tomcat REALM and wondered if that is required by this ISAPI
filter as another user at JavaRanch explained the following to me:

You'd have to provide the user principals and roles via a Tomcat Realm in order for getRemoteUser
to work. Filters, IIS authenthicators - none of them setup the J2EE security context of which
getUserPrincipal and getRemoteUser are parts.

How do I do that for this ISAPI filter setup if that is indeed true?

Thanks.

We have a custom filter that we're using because after we get the request and response info
then I need to use the user value info and get the user also authenticated against a legacy
system.

But right now I have that commented out in my web.xml so that I can go directly to a test
index.jsp page and verify that the getRemoteUser() is acquiring the user info from ISAPI but
ISAPI is not providing that info to me via this method.  I'm not sure, again, why it shows
the info in the log but I cannot get to it directly.  I'm not sure how Ranier was able to
get to it as he stated awhile back.

Thanks again.

What do you have defined in web.xml for security-config etc?
