I'm using a webadaptor with ArcGIS Server 10.4 to which I added an authentication filter (CAS client) via the
web.xml. Everything works perfectly for the web application. However, when I try to connect via the ArcCatalog it will not authenticate my user. If I use the built-it
siteadmin account, I can connect, but as that user does not exist in my enterprise identity store, it is clearly not authenticating at the web tier. I captured the traffic from ArcCatalog in my filter and can see that it initially requests:
This leads me to believe that it is going to use the public key to encrypt the username/password on and send that as a second request. If it is doing that, then only ArcGIS Server would be able to decode the username/password so it would not be using web tier for authentication... Am I missing something here (I hope so...)? Or is ArcCatalog incapable of authenticating at the web tier?
