We are creating an in-house developed portal for our customers. One of the features in our portal will be the user management which will be provided through Adaxes Web Interface. The customer will log in to our developed portal through AD credentials. Is there a way to pass AD credentials off to Adaxes' Web Interface? In a way of a cookie? session? URL encoded string?

Any information will help the developers on our end.

It is possible to pass user credentials programmatically to Adaxes Web Interface. Here you have 2 options:

1. Call the SignIn method on the Adaxes authentication web service (AuthenticationService.asmx).

Using ASP.NET AJAX Extentions:

   Sys.Net.WebServiceProxy.invoke("/AdaxesAdmin/AuthenticationService.asmx", "SignIn", false, 
   {'username': username, 'password': password}, function(){location.href = "/AdaxesAdmin/Default.aspx"}, 

Using jQuery:

            'url': "/AdaxesAdmin/AuthenticationService.asmx/SignIn",
            'data': "{username: \""+ username + "\", password: \"" + password + "\"}", 
            'dataType': "json",
            'contentType': "application/json; charset=utf-8",
            'success': function(){location.href = "/AdaxesAdmin/Default.aspx"},
            'error': function(jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown)
               var responseJson = $.parseJSON(jqXHR.responseText);

Please note that this method will work only if your web site and Adaxes Web Interface are hosted in the same domain.

2. Pass user name and password in the sign in URL:


Since we are developing our in house application in PHP, I will keep every one updated if we decide to use the PHP Microsoft AJAX Library located at http://phpmsajax.codeplex.com



Is something like this still possible with recent versions of Adaxes? e.g. with 2018.2



Nevermind, I see that it is. You just post to /SignIn instead.
