AD Credentials Authentication/Propagation

(imported topic written by SystemAdmin)

Hey everyone,

I was wondering with the new version of the Platform API whether there was a new object like the Signing Keys object from previous versions. I am looking for a way to authenticate users with their AD credentials instead of the legacy .pvk credentials. Is there something like this in the newest version of the Platform API so I can hook into the Platform API to check credentials?

In our current development environment we have 8.2.1093 and I have Platform API version 8.2.1093. When I try and import an action (using besimportfile.exe) into TEM, using a user’s legacy .pvk credentials the action gets imported, but when I attempt to use the AD credentials of that user, the action does not get imported. So I guess my question would be, can users use their AD credentials to work with the Platform API and besimportfile.exe?

Thanks for your time,

Ilithis

Ilithis,

Have you tried to create your own script which will contain following:

Set xmlimporter = CreateObject(“BESAPI.XMLImporter”)

xmlImporter.ImportFile(xmlFile,siteName,opUser,opPasswd)

I believe this should work without passing private key.

Regards,
