External URL login

Hi All,

I need to trigger an external URL (eg: mail.yahoo.com) with pre populated user id & password in it (which will be a SAP User from Active directory). It can have other parameters as well.

Client do not have portal and we need to integrate the Webdynpro ABAP application in NWBC 4.0.

It is not mandatory to use Webdynpro ABAP so other solutions are also welcome.

regards,

nik

    There are many ways to generate and trigger URLs. Since you are using NWBC, I suggest you look at the method URL_CONSTRUCT of ABAP class CL_NWBC.

    Hi Manish,

    It sounds like a very insecure approach, passing username and password to another website like that. I doubt that you can do that with i.e. Yahoo. Passing it via the URL means they are more or less visible to anyone.

    Could you explain your scenario a bit more in depth? Are you the owner of both applications (meaning, can you change them if necessary)?

    Thanks for your replies. Sorry i was on holidays with less internet access.

    I agree with Carl that it will be an insecure way to do it.

    After discussion with the solution architect, we decided to go for SSO, so that security wont be any issue.

    Thanks for your inputs, I am closing the thread.
