Authentication Type HTTP

Using Authentication Type HTTP it is possible to store the user accounts into your WebOffice usermanagement rights repository. User login will be passed in HTTP parameter.


Recommended scenarios for this authentication type are:

Implementing public (no login required) internet region portals with different user roles representing different parts (e.g., communities within the region).



The authentication type HTTP does not use the WebOffice login dialog. The authentication is realized via the transfer of user credentials via HTTP or POST requests. A general comparison of the common authentication methods in WebOffice 10.9 SP1 can be found in chapter Overview of authentication methods.


Authentication type HTTP configuration

Authentication type HTTP configuration





Defines the address of the portal login site. There, the user has to log-in first before starting WebOffice 10.9 SP1 in the browser.

HTTP Referrer

Defines the address(es) of the portal server (values separated with |"). Access to WebOffice 10.9 SP1 is possible only from this address (referrer).

Use user roles only?

Use role based information from authentication system (GET Parameter roles, comma separated value). No storage and maintenance of user objects in the user management database is necessary then. Otherwise the GET parameter user identifies the user.
