CMIS 1.1 authentication

Question asked by idwright on Sep 17, 2014
I'm trying to use the CMIS 1.1 browser binding from javascript i.e. https://localhost/alfresco/api/-default-/public/cmis/versions/1.1/browser/root?cmisselector=properties and as far as I can see HTTP Basic is the only auth method supported

My browser is authorized to connect to Alfresco/Share but can't talk to the cmis service without further basic auth

Does anybody know if this is a correct interpretation i.e. must additionally use basic auth for CMIS 1.1?
or suggestions to work around?

One possible, but ugly, approach: Is there a way to request an auth ticket without passing the username/password when already logged in?


I'm running under SSO but the proxy from Share doesn't work for CMIS 1.1 - see earlier post
If the servlet is authenticated i.e. knows the credentials from CAS (REMOTE_USER) then this doesn't help as it still requests the basic auth login

I've got quite a nice CMIS based dojo store which will be useful when I get the auth sorted out… (I've already done some fun stuff using it with Aikau)
