Defining authentication parameters for login URLs

Use the Glass.urlLoginParameters advanced setting to allow namespace logging parameters contained in a URL to be passed to the authentication provider.

For example, the administrator defines the parameters CAMNamespace, CAMPassword, and CAMUsername. A user then logs on by entering a Cognos Analytics URL that is appended with their credentials. The parameters are then passed to CAM for authentication. The login URL would appear as follows:



  1. Click Manage > Configuration > System, and select Advanced Settings.
  2. Type Glass.urlLoginParameters in the Key field.
  3. Enter a parameter name in the Value field.
    Tip: You can enter multiple parameter names separated by commas.
  4. Click Apply.
