Questions about Waffle usecase

May 4, 2011 at 4:38 PM

I have a usecase that I think that Waffle could solve.  I was able to get waffle to work inside of websphere by dropping the jars and configuring the web.xml and adding a jsp page.

What i am trying to do is get the Username and Roles of the logged in User inside of IBM websphere portal without have the user actually be logged into Portal. 

So has any one taken the waffle filter and implemented it as a servlet or portlet yet, and been able to get groups out of AD in Portal.  


Thank you for all of your help.  From what i have seen waffle looks fantastic.

IMHO because of the way negotiate works you still need to negotiate with a client, which will cause the entire session to authenticate. So maybe this is impossible?

I agree but the session authenticate would not by default authenticate you with IBM portal.  My browser/session would authenticate with AD but because i did not set up trust between the AD and portal you would not be logged in.

Well, that might just work ;)
