Need to download attachments in another server!

Hi All,

  I am trying to download attachments from issues in another server. Basically I am developing a web panel which has rows with hyperlink to another server with attachment location.

When I click on the hyperlink, it takes to the login page of remote server - which I basically want to bypass and download attachments(skipping login steps)

 Passing the username and password is not secure.


Please help me

You'll have to configure the other server to allow access without username/password, which isn't particularly secure.  Or find another way to get logged into it.  SSO perhaps?  What is your current user directory?

Hi Nic,

 Thanks for quick reply. Can you please elaborate on "What is your current user directory?"





How are your users handled? Internal? Crowd? LDAP? Something else? Whatever it is, it needs to handle SSO if that's the route you choose

Ok, so how do you propose to publish files to users who log into that server via LDAP?

I have a service account[LDAP]. Whenever the user clicks on the server1 link[ link to attachment file location in server 2], I would like to use my service account and fetch the files i.e attachments from a particular issue in server2, instead of showing the login page of server 2 to user. Many a times user in server 1 does not have an account in server 1.
