User will cause the system to automatically sign on with a
specific user name. This is a secure way to configure Webulator/400
because you have control over what AS/400 user profiles people are allowed to
sign on with. If this is specified, it must be followed by a
UserName, which is described below.
Screen will cause people to be presented with an AS/400 signon
screen. They may then type in the AS/400 user and password they want to use
to sign on. This may be less secure because the AS/400 user and password could be
sent over the TCP/IP network between the browser and the server. It is
recommended that this only be used over internal networks unless secured with
SSL. If using secured Webulator/400 sessions, all data, including user ids and passwords is
UseAuthentication uses authentication information sent from the
browser as the AS/400 user and password. This is slightly more secure than
Screen because the user and password are sent uuencoded (while
uuencoded text is not as obvious as "clear" text, it is not a form of
encryption and it is easy to "decode" it). You can also combine this with
to limit the user IDs and passwords that can be entered for a
URL. This changes the meaning of
Webulator/400 require entries; any users
listed will be expected to be valid user profiles instead of entries in a
ExitPgm will instruct Webulator/400 to call a user written exit
program anytime a signon screen is encountered. This method offers the greatest
amount of flexibility but also requires additional setup time because of the
effort needed to write the actual exit program. If this is specified, it must
be followed by a Exit Program, Exit Program Library and
Exit Program Format Name
which are described below.
Disabled Disables webulator access in the current directory.
Userwas specified above. It is the AS/400 user that will be signed on. It must have a corresponding entry in the Webulator/400 user file.
UseAuthentication. If set, Webulator/400 will allow signon screen fields to be overridden by URL options.
UseAuthentication. If set, Webulator/400 will not allow signon screen fields to be overridden by URL options.
ExitPgm. This is the program that will be called whenever a signon screen is detected from the AS/400. It is the exit program's responsibility to determine whether a particular request should be allowed and if so it must return a valid user id and password to use for the system.
ExitPgm. This is the library where the exit program resides.
ExitPgm. This entry specifies the format of the structure that the exit program is expecting. Initially the only valid Format Name is
QAPP0100. This list will be expanded as new formats are implemented.
Screen, will be inherited.
