    Can't include the username and password of a database in a WebDirect URL

      Summary

      Can't include the username and password of a database in a WebDirect URL

      Product

      FileMaker Server

      Version

      13

      Operating system version

      Mac OS 10.9

      Description of the issue

      With IWP, we were able to include the following in a url to have IWP auto login as a specific user which worked well for web pages for specific use using IWP...

      &acct=account&name=USERNAME&password=PASSWORD&login=Login&-authdb

      That doesn't seem to work with webdirect. Is there a way to build a webdirect url that will pass in the credentials?

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Tried to append the params that IWP used in WebDirect

      Expected result

      Expected create a URL to open a database and auto login using the supplied username and password in the URL.

      Actual result

      Went to a login screen for the database supplied in in URL

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      none
