Esri Geoportal Server has the option to secure datasets, such that it's necessary to log in to view them:
- Is it possible to interact with this login functionality programatically?
I'd like to provide the login form on another web page, then pass the parameters to Esri Geoportal in the background, without displaying the above user interface.
- Can I detect whether the user is logged in (or not) via the Geoportal's REST API? The documentation doesn't mention user management.
(There is a sample Geoportal Server instance at http://gptogc.esri.com/geoportal/catalog/main/home.page which may be useful for testing.)
