hi ,

I am using siteminder to implement SSO functionality to my WebApp , Also, I am using Apache and Tomact with connector mod_jk. when ever user login in using SiteMinder, site minder sets environment varibles related to user info( like user_id, user_name....etc), Now, I want to read them and pass them in request to tomcat, so that ,I can have my own implementation of access control for internal resources.


Thanks in Advance, Please let me know if you need more details.




Regards,
Don

FYI:

I just found that, we can achieve this by using mod_jk directive JkEnvVar .....







Thanks
