Single Login

Hello All,


I have read all I can find about security but can't find an answer to this one.


I have a solution where an iOS app accesses a file hosted by FMS.

The iOS app is a skeleton file, layouts and scripts, and all data is on the host, so that I don't have synching to worry about.

The access accounts are handled by the hosted file and the iOS app is set to auto login using a Read-Only privilege set.


So here's my problem.


My users are lazy. If they hit cancel on the login screen (they don't know they're only cancelling the host login) the iOS up still fires up but without file access to the host. Complaints pour in.

If the iOS device is interrupted (say by a phone call) the user is sometimes presented with a re-login screen for the iOS app. They don't look at the filename being accessed (and don't want to know) and are annoyed when their login (for the host file) is rejected.


How do I get around this? Is there a way to "Get" the current set of accounts from the host file and use them to log in to the iOS app, then pass the same authentication back to the hosted file?


I guess what I want is single login without using Active Directory?


Can anyone advise me?
