Accessing Container Data in PHP Custom Web Publishing
I'm having issues with PHP CWP. The goal is simple: connect to a database, perform a find, arrange found records in a table.
Problems arise with the last part: The database has some externally stored container data (pdf files, for the purpose of this web-app). I'm looping through found records and using 'getContainerDataURL($record->getField('Doc Container'))' to provide the href for an <a>. getContainerDataURL() does create a link to the file but when clicked, FM Server (presumably) asks the user to log in again. Even though the connection is already made.
Obviously, I do not want to give random users the username and password used to log into the database. I was under the impression that when FM said that getContainerDataURL() creates "fully-qualified" URLs, it would just work without requiring signing in again.
My question: how do I link to a file in a secure container without requiring a second authentication when the user "leaves" my PHP-CWP site to open the file.
Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
