Hey all, I need your assistance.
I am currently using Qlikview 10 SR2 with IIS as my webserver. I am also using a Custom Directory with a prefix of TEST\ for all my users. (ex: test\johndoe, test\user2, etc)
I've written some code in VB.NET that acts as a landing page, and gets a ticket for authentication from the QlikView Server. You can find the code snippet I used here: http://community.qlik.com/message/117147#117147
So the main point of the code is that it makes a request for a ticket in the following structure: '<Global method="GetTicket"><UserId>' + username + '</UserId></Global>'
And the server replies with a ticket like so: 510EA55C2DB723DC04C16C6FB3CDAB24F3390792
Now, you're supposed to be able to use that ticket as a method of authentication for the user that you passed into the GetTicket request.
My code is running fine and I can retrieve a ticket without any problems.
However, when I try to access my AccessPoint by using the ticket parameter, it still asks me to log in. It's not an IIS authentication issue because when I change the log in settings in the QEMC to the alternate web form, it'll bring up the alternate web form asking me to log in; if I change it to the regular log in using browser authentication, the browser prompts me for a user name and password. If I type in my custom users, I can log into the AccessPoint.
I've also tried opening a specific document with a ticket and it still asks me to log in.
The weird thing is, is that I had it working before the weekend where it would log me into the AccessPoint by using nothing more than my ticket, and it suddenly stopped working this week when I booted up my server.
I've set my security for DMS authorization, authentication for Custom Users with a prefix of TEST\. Like I said, I had it working, and now it's stopped when I rebooted my system on the weekend. Did any QlikView config files change once I rebooted? What could cause something to stop working? I've wasted plenty of time playing with the QEMC already, did I miss something? Do I need to add anything to my code or my IIS settings?
I'm retrieving the tickets just fine, so why isn't the QlikView server accepting them?
Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.
