Is HTTP Basic Auth now usable again?

In the Blog entitled "User Mapping-based Single Sign On" by Robert Chu, dated 11/4/2004, he comments on various methods of SSO and user mapping. He points out that only the "old" format of HTTP Basic, no longer permitted by Microsoft, is supported. So essentially, it means that HTTP Basic Authentication is not available through EP. There is an alternative syntax that Microsoft still supports, which has been available for a long time. Has EP been changed, since the Blog was written, so that it once again can do HTTP Basic Authentication? We have several applications that use that method, and we think that EP ought to support it "out of the box" rather than having to write custom iViews.

    Hi David,

    I had the same issue and we asked about that in OSS message. And they told us we could do that by implementing java codes refering note 779865.

    we use EP6 SP10.

    Hope this helps.
