Setup: iPhone and Android apps to access a web site with form authentication


WorkflowGen Mobile apps (iOs and Android) don’t support form authentication.

The best way to support the iPhone/Android application on your WorkflowGen servers is to use a Custom HTTP module for custom authentication on your WorkflowGen web site (\wfgen).

A possible solution is to use the Custom HTTP module to manage a dual authentication modes (1. Form: Render a login form for regular WorkflowGen user; 2. Basic (over SSL https) : Authenticate a iPhone user with the login from the authorization http header over SSL https).

You can find an example for creating a basic Custom HTTP module in the technical guide.

See Appendix C: Sample code for an HTTP module
