I am able to access this file. but the username password prompt does pop up. how to bypass it is my question.
The ACLs of a file under the /pub directory of an IS package are controlled by a .access file that needs to be in the same directory as the file. The format is
Url to access:
Is there a way to pass/use webMethods ACL’s to view .dsp pages in the /pub dir of a flow service? I am using DSP’s to call flow services and I CAN control the flow services by ACL’s but the pages (.dsp) I can’t. Can this .access file call natively the webMethods ACL’s? Finally, what is the format for the .access file on Windows - Can’t create a file with a ‘.’ infront with ms windows.
You cannot use the .access file to pass an ACL to the invoked service, you can only define the required ACL to show the files in the pub folder. Indeed you cannot create .access files from the new->text file context menu in windows explorer. However, text editors (notepad, textpad etc) do allow you to save a file as “.access”.
“… invoked service, you can only define the required ACL to show the files in the pub folder.”
How is this done? Where can I define the required ACL and how do I link the .dsp files to that ACL?
The .access file looks like:
For instance, if you have an index.dsp which you want to protect with the Administrators ACL, the .access file would have a line:
You can also use wildcards in the file name.
After reloading the package, it worked.
