Asking login credentials after validated SSO succfessfully

Hi All,

Our client requirement is that from some other application, they have to use our application URL to see local reports. But when they click on this link it is asking login credentials (loginid/password) again.
Both the applications share the common DB to authendicate the user. How can i bypass this login page and want to see local reports directly from other application.?

Thanks in advance.

Note: We are using weblogic and iPlanet servers to view the reports from application A to B.

Regards,
Ganapathi.

You claim to be using SSO?

How? AD/Kerberos/CAS (jasig) etc.?

If already logged in and the filter or interceptor is firing successfully, it should work.

If you are going cross-domain, that is another matter altogether.

Only in cases where a standard security framework is being used. One of the reasons that I harp so continuously on that topic. Phrases like "Both the applications share the common DB to authendicate the user" make me suspect that this isn't what's being done, but rather that one or both of those apps is using DIY security, instead.
