Hello,

After having configure external authentication, auto login doesn't work.

alfresco-global.properties

authentication.chain=external:external
external.authentication.enabled=true
external.authentication.defaultAdministratorUserNames=admin
external.authentication.proxyHeader=REMOTE_USER

Is there something to do in the WEB-INF/web.xml file ?

When a user tries to access to ALFRESCO from http://X.X.X.X:8080/alfresco/faces/jsp/login.jsp, the login form appears instead of his workspace
When a user tries to access to ALFRESCO from http://X.X.X.X:8080/alfresco/services/api/login, an error "Username not specified" is raised.

However, when I list all REQUEST HEADERS, the REMOTE_USER variable is present with the user's username.

Any help please ?
