Re: Header Auth Virtual Proxy is not working

Headers are passed behind the scenes and not in the URL. Fiddler is the easiest tool to inject headers, but extensions / plugins exist for many browsers. See:

Hi Levi,

So I need to download fiddler on my server machine and configure as per the second image.

in that you are passing only one user , if I need to pass multiple user then how to configure.

Thanks in Advance,

Re: Header Auth Virtual Proxy is not working

Fiddler is just an easy tool to set the headers of the web browser's request.

You can always change the values in the second image (which are specific to my machine, by the way, you will want to adjust to domain\userid for your environment) if you need to emulate another user.

Hi Levi,

I have users list like ,

1.Test1

2.Test2

3.Test3

Thanks,

Ramarajan M.

in Fiddler you are passing only one user like "USERDIRECTORY\Test1"  then how to pass those remaining 2 users.

Re: Header Auth Virtual Proxy is not working

You can only inject the headers for one user in a fiddler session. You can always close the browser, change the Fiddler request headers, and then emulate another user.

Hi Levi,

Final doubt , so that fiddler installed in the client side or server side.

Client side. But do keep in mind, Fiddler is ideal for testing purposes but it obviously is too much work for an actual end user solution.

Re: Header Auth Virtual Proxy is not working

The key item to remember with http header authentication is that the header name and value must be passed with every request to the Qlik Sense server.  As soon as the header name and value is not present in the web request, the Qlik Sense server will sever the connection.

What is the use case you want to use header authentication for?
