UCCX script to access AD authenticated sharepoint site

Hello,

So Im trying to create a UCCX script that retrieves XML information from a SharePoint site however as our SharePoint doesn't have anonymous access turned on, all users need to be first authenticated with AD before they can access anything on SharePoint.

Is there a way in a script that UCCX can authenticate/assume a user from AD before accessing SharePoint?

Thanks in advance,

Ray

Hi, well, first you need to find out the HTTP auth type supported with your Sharepoint instance. Basic? Digest? 

AD is only a database where user credentials are stored.

Thanks.

Thanks for your reply G. It is using NTLM authentication.

Hi,

by NTLM you mean Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) - ie. users are not prompted to enter their username and password when using the Sharepoint site?

G.

Correct, the user doesn't get prompted for their username/password when accessing SharePoint and receives denial if they don't have the proper access with no option to enter a different username/password.


Thanks,

Ray

 

I see. Now, UCCX is a *nix box and thus IWA is not an option.

Anyway, did you try the good old http(s)://user:pass@ip/page scheme? I am almost sure Sharepoint has got a fallback if IWA does not go thrugh.
