OpenOffice : persistent cookie for webdav authentication

Question asked by cedced on Aug 9, 2010
Hello,

We have configured Alfresco to use the external authentication mechanism. The authentication is form based and relies on a persistent cookie received by the user at login.

This mechanism enable a single sign on between Alfresco Explorer and a Webdav session when using MS Office : as Windows automatically shares persistent cookies between Internet Explorer and Microsoft Office, a user authenticated in our application via IE does not have to authenticate when MS Office opens a document via webdav.
But the same mechanism does not seem to apply to Open Office, meaning the webdav edition is not possible with OO on our application.

Is there any way to force Open Office to use an authentication cookie stored by IE when accessing the webdav server (so without prompting a username-password box) ?
