Hi

Our requirement is to create the custom link on AEM welcome page dashboard and when user will click on it then it will redirect to other applications dashboard.

In this case can we validate the use in other application? Are there any API available in AEM by using that we can validate the user in redirected applications?

 

Thanks

So you want your Quickupload webapplication to be able to use AEM for authentication? IIRC this is nothing AEM provides ootb, because AEM is not designed to act as a IDP system. You can probably build a custom solution for this, but in that case I would rather setup a dedicated IDP and let AEM authenticate against this IDP, as well as your Quickupload application.

You can Use SAML or you can use the session cookies and session token to validate the user.

It will be good if you can provide the details about your application for more help.

Hi Amit,

Basically, we have one web application (name as QuickUpload) and deployed on JBOSS application server. We have added one link  (Quickupload) on AEM welcome page and when user will click on this link then user will redirect to that web application's dashboard. Now in web application we want to validate the user and then displaying the web application's dashboard. 

Are there any ways or any API available in AEM, by using that we can validate the user in web application like?

Thanks

In your AEM application - does the user login to view the AEM web page that contains the link?
