Annymous Access to EP6 KM Resositories

I am attempting to build a external facing portal that has informostion available to the general public. This information will fit nicely in a EP6 KM repository. I am having problems making the site work.

I am using the "Guest" ID approach. Where I launch the portal with a guest ID "j_user" and access iViews that are assigned the "guest" authorization scheme. This works for all iViews that are not KM related. I have created a separate reposiroty and gave the "anonymous" group read access. I then created explorer view iViews to the repository and assigned the iView the "guest" authorization scheme. However, when ever I try access any of the KM related iViews I get prompted for a user ID and password.

Has anyone successfully attepmted this type of access to KM?

    Hello,

    In some documentation to EP6 SP2 (something about anonymous access configuration) I've found, that KM is not supported for anonymous access. I gave up, now we have a special user (call him ANON). We modified the INDEX.HTM which is called when you first access the portal to something like this:

    ________________________________________________________

    <BODY OnLoad="login.submit();">

    <FORM name="login" ACTION="http://type_your_portal_addresshere/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.portal.navigation.portallauncher.default" METHOD=POST>

    <INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME=j_user value="anon">

    <INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME=j_password value="anonpassword">

    <INPUT TYPE=hidden name=login_submit VALUE="sendForm">

    </FORM>

    </BODY>

    ________________________________________________________

    (of course some more modification of MASTERHEAD iview was done). The permissions on repositories accessed are set for ANON (or his role) to read only, and so on.

    Hope it helps a bit.

    you may try to confront it in a different way...(as we did) - external users will only get rooms, and not the whole portal. in the room you can create team folder that is totally separated from the rest of the folders and show the external users only that.
