    Default Executing report by appending user information into report url, report is not shown

    I create a report and publish it to bi-server. I log into the application and execute the report. It works without a problem. And then I try to access report file by appending credential information to the report url, so I don't need to log in to pentaho bi server through login page. The url is something like:

    http://192.168.1.199:8080/pentaho/co...sword=password

    I log out from bi server and past the url above to the browser. I also modify pentaho.xml file to manage user and solution file mapping so each solution folder is assigned to specific users.
    The problem is I am redirected to the pentaho login page, so I need to input credential information again.
    I have no problem with pasting credential information into dashboard solution file.
    So has anyone had similar problem ? How can I execute report file in bi server without inputting credential through login page ?
    Thanks

    I use pentaho bi -server 4.0.0 CE GA
    pentaho report designer 3.8.1

    I see in pentaho security documentation (http://wiki.pentaho.com/display/Serv...Authentication) that it has RequestParameterAuthenticationFilter where, according to the documentation, it allows the user requesting access to provide his or her username and password on the query string of the URL..
    How can I use this bean to achieve what I want ?
    I try to put this bean in front of other processingfilter beans in applicationContext-spring-security.xml to no avail..

    it turns out that if I omit some parts of the url like this...:

    http://192.168.1.199:8080/pentaho/co...sword=password

    and I paste this url to the browser, it is not redirected to the login page...
