Different forms of authentication in URL API

Hello there!

Today let’s talk about how to use different kinds of authentication using URL API.

To change the authentication mode, you just have to add the parameter: &connMode=x. Where x is a number and indicates the mode that you want to use.

There are a few types of modes available, here is the complete list of them:

  • Standard = 1
  • LDAP Authentication = 16
  • Database Authentication = 4
  • Guest = 8
  • Windows Authentication = 2
  • Trusted Authentication = 64
  • Integrated Authentication = 128
Here is an example of how to use the connection mode:
http://WEB_SERVER/MicroStrategy/asp/Main.aspx?evt=4001&src=Main.aspx.4001&SERVER=SERVER_NAME
 &PROJECT=PROJECT_NAME&reportviewMode=1&reportID=A164D5B74F816ED0EA7DAF809F34F7C4&connMode=1&uid=administrator&pwd=

So, in that case, you are specifying a standard authentication (connMode=1) and using uid (username) and pwd (password).

Hope it helps.

God bless you.
