Hi all,
does anyone know if it's possible to access the portal users from a seperate application?
There's already a Portal Server installed and now, a second system written in ASP should be integrated. The problem is that the user shall login (to the portal server) only one time. After logging in, on his/her portal page will be a link to the ASP-Application. As there mustn't be a second login, i have to hand over the user and the rights/role to the ASP-Application e.g. by appending it to the URL and forwarding this to the system.
That's what I thought how I could do this. Maybe I'm wrong because I had nothing to do with portal server yet. But If this was a possible way to do that, it would be kind of you to tell me how I can access the users' information/role or if it's not possible this way then tell me another way.
Thanks in advance
Frank

So, you're saying you want single-signon between a WPS application and a separate ASP application, right?

In theory this should be possible through using the Tivoli Access Manager that comes with WPS (or at least some versions of WPS). At least the TAM product description implies this is possible. I would look through the Tivoli Access Manager redbooks for more information on this...
