Security

Hi!
I’ve been doing the tamino security and what I did is I defined my user, group and Acl(Access control list) using the System Management hub (Tamino Server) and the restriction works. The problem was now authenticating users, I looked through the apache tutorial and I created a password file using the .htpasswd that comes with tamino and configured my httpd.cong file to look like this

<Location /tamino>
SetHandler ino
AuthType Basic
AuthName tamino
AuthUserFile <>
require valid user


Now it works ok because whenever I try to access tamino it prompt for the username and the password, but then the problem is I never go through I always get the error “Authorisation Required”. I don’t know what might have gone wrong so please can someone help!

Kind Regards

Hi Venuela,

does the AuthUserFile property refer to your password file that you have created with the htpasswd tool of our Apache installation?

Hi!
Thank you for repkying.
Yes my AuthUserFile points to the password file that I’ve created with the .htpasswd file.
I still need help cause I need to get this Tamino Security working.

Hi,

try to set the required users as follow:

require valid-user

(I have overlooked the missing dash between valid and user in your settings)

If it still does not work, you can try to define a group. Which is explained under http://httpd.apache.org/docs/misc/tutorials.html

Hi all!
I still have the same problem, I get the error
"Authorization Required
This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the document requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn’t understand how to supply the credentials required."
I’ve authenticated using Apache, so whenever I try to retrieve a node I’ve restricted access to it prompts me for a username and password then I get the error.

Kind Regards

Hi Venuela,

to come to a fast solution, I would propose that you contact the Software AG Customer Support Center. If you are using Tamino XML Server purchased from your local Software AG office and have a maintenance contract, you will be able to obtain assistance from Software AG’s international Customer Support Center. Contact the responsible Account Manager at your local Software AG office for details. Or enter your request via SAGnet, Software AG?s online technical support.
