Tutorial Pages > Windows Authentication In A Web Application

This document describes the processes needed to Autenticate a user accessing your pages by using their windows username and password.

This will then also enable you to track users through the site, so for instance, if they press a button on the site to action an event, you'll be able to log who actioned the event.

The advantages of this are that:-

The user can use their windows username and password.
The httpsession variable is used so that the user only needs to login once.
The username is stored against the ip address, so that it will only need to be entered once for a machine.
A session will automatically expire when no new requests have been made for a set time.

You can download the tasks for this example from:- http://www.international-presence.com/wikidocs/samples/On_Demand_Windows_Login.xml



To embed the task, we just place the "Check Login Sub Task" before our normal ondemand task page. It might be that all ondemand pages start from one single task, in which case we would place the "Check Login Sub Task" at the start of that task.
