Qlikview webticket doesn't pass user id

I am trying to implement single signon for my qlikview application. I am using web ticket to implement this. My web ticket gets generated, but when i open the access point using that web ticket, the qlikview does not recognize the user but opens the accesspoint as anonymous. As a result, all documents which have accesses restricted to specific user (through DMS) dont show up in the access point.

To test it out and zero down on exact problem, i tested things down directly on browser. This is what i do:

1.

To generate a ticket, i paste this link in my browser:

http://<server>/QVAJAXZfc/GetWebTicket.aspx?cmd=<Global method='GetWebTicket'><UserId>testuser</User...

Instead of <server>, i put actual IP of the server where the Qlikview server is hosted, which i havent posted here for security reasons.

2.

This generates a ticket - i get the response in this format:

<Global><_retval_>ECqqnEI+K1ab7XEkBih0LzpKrQ1+nf0ovdENB9XB</_retval_></Global>

3.

Then i use this ticket to access the qlikview access point using following URL:

http://<server>/QvAJAXZfc/Authenticate.aspx?type=html&webticket=ECqqnEI+K1ab7XEkBih0LzpKrQ1+nf0ovdEN...

This opens the qlikview access point for me but as "Anonymous" instead of as "testuser"

Now it shows 1 document that ALL the users had access to, but doesnt show second document which only the testuser had access to. I have defined the access using DMS and ODBC connection.

What am i missing or doing wrong ?

Check the settings for the webserver in the QMC for authentication.

The best setting would be "Always" for the authentication setting on the web server.
