EP 7.0 : URL IView app : Access as Named Anonymous fails / asks for login


i have an Url IView loading an application which is running on the portals WebAs.

Access to the application works fine for spnego authenticated users.

For named anonymous users a loginpanel with the message upload protected area apears.

URL IView is set to anonymous auth. And the User is added to the ume.login.guest_user.uniqueids property.

In general, the named anoymous authetication is working, but not for this special case.

As we recently migrated this from 6.40 to 7.00 are there any differences we should have a look at?

The old configuration was:

NW Portal > URL-IView > WebAS > J2EE Application

The new is:

NW Portal > URL-IView -> J2EE Application

so there is no second WebAS to be configured.

Have there been changes according security zones? (As our Applicaton is no portal app it has no portalapp.xml and therefore it does not apear in security zones)

What should I be looking for to get rid of this login panel?

I did already check this according to the PUT servlet

prompt username and password for "Upload Protected Area" in web appl

Best Regards,

    Some testing show that there is a differnce between the authentication mechanism of the user

    Normally named Anonymous Users auth bei calling an URL like:


    If I use this URL-Method i can't open the application without the upload protected area pop up and re-authenticate there.

    If I log in with the named anonymous user over the portal launcher by entering user and password i can call the uplication without problems.

    In both cases I can see the mysapsso2 cookie beeing sent. So this should be okay.

    What is the difference for the system, that makes proceeding to the application fail?
