For information about editing eapps.cfg parameters and about the purposes for the parameters, see Parameters in the eapps.cfg File.

Table 15. Parameter Values in eapps.cfg File
Example Entry




The values of the parameters in this section are overridden by the parameter values you set in the sections for individual applications.

For this scenario, you set Web SSO and related parameters in application-specific sections.

The section particular to your application, such as one of these:



where _enu is the language code for U.S. English.



Enter the user ID of the seed data User record provided for the application that you implement or of the User record you create for the anonymous user.

This entry also matches the sAMAccountName entry for the anonymous user record in the directory. For example, enter GUESTCST for Siebel Service.



Enter the password you created in the directory for the anonymous user.

NOTE:  Typically, password encryption applies to the eapps.cfg file. In this case, you must specify the encrypted password. See Managing Encrypted Passwords in the eapps.cfg File.






Enter HELLO, or a contiguous string of your choice.

In Web SSO mode when used with a custom security adapter, the specified value is passed as the password parameter to a custom security adapter—but only if the value corresponds to the value of the Trust Token parameter defined for the custom security adapter.




REMOTE_USER is the default Web server variable in which the user's identity key is placed for retrieval by the authentication manager.



REMOTE_USER is a Web server variable.



Generally, you would enter the name of the protected virtual directory that you created in Creating Protected Virtual Directories.

NOTE:  It is recommended that this parameter should always be used in a Web SSO implementation.
