ShinyProxy 2.2.1 how to use proxy.webservice authentication?


#1

I am always excited about the new version release of the ShinyProxy. After trying the new version 2.2.1, I was not successful in the web-service authorization that worked well with the previous version. I am wondering if there is any document or guideline to use the new proxy.webservice auth. Thanks!

Hi @Wongyu_Choi,

Maybe it has to do with the fact that we moved the configuration from proxy to proxy.webservice in order to be consistent with the other authentication back-ends in version 2.2.0.

I have now updated the documentation (here) to:

proxy:
  webservice:
    authentication-url: https://your-auth-server.com/login
    authentication-request-body: "{username: %s, password: %s}" 

Sorry about the confusion and thanks for reporting!

Best,
Tobias
