THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

Does EFT support single-click/one-click authentication?
Note: If you are looking for information about Single Sign-On support in EFT Server, refer to Integrated Windows Authentication for Single Sign On (SSO).
Yes, you can pass user credentials to EFT Server through a parameter in the URL used to connect to EFT Server through the Secure Ad Hoc Transfer (SAT) module.
In EFT Server v6.3 and later (SAT version 3), SAT creates the URL for
you when you
configure single-click authentication in the SAT interface.
In EFT Server v6.2 and earlier (SAT version 2), you can create a base64-encoded username and password pair and insert them into SAT's web.cofig file.
Many free base64-encoding utilities are available online, such as http://tools.devshed.com/webmaster-tools/base64/.
To create a base64-encoded password in EFT Server v6.2 and earlier
- In your Web browser, type the URL for the SAT send page with encode.htm at the end of the address. For example, type:
The GlobalSCAPE WebAdmin Base64 Encode Utility appears.
- In the Enter password and Confirm password boxes, type the administrator password, then click Encode to create the obfuscated version of the password.
- In the SAT configuration file, edit the EFTAdminPassword value, replacing it with the obfuscated password you just created. Also, replace EFTAdminUsername with the new
administrator username you just created.
||To create an encoded username:password pair, type the
username and password separated by a colon. For example, type: admin:admin
Add the parameter to end of the URL, such as https://eft.server.com?wtcQID=dXNlcm5hbWU6cGFzc3dvcmQ= where "dXNlcm5hbWU6cGFzc3dvcmQ=” is the the base64-encoded username:password pair.
