PM91911: DWA docs: smart card authentication missing details

Subscribe

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The DWA smart card documentation should explicitly state that
    smart card authentication needs to be implemented in DOORS first
    before it can be used in DWA.
    
    There should also be an example of what you need to add to the
    server.xml file to get smart card authentication implemented
    with DWA. This is done for SSL in DWA (see:
    http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/doorshlp/v9/topic/com.ibm.rati
    onal.dwa.install.doc/topics/t_configureSSL.html)
    so it should be done for smart card authentication as well.

    functionality.
