    Hi,

    I have a node.js application that I want to protect using siteminder.

     

    How would I pass the user info to the node.js application? Would it be able to make use of the normal SM_USER header to authenticate users?

     

    Has anyone else done this? I do have CA API Gateway as well in the environment if that can be leveraged to support this.


    Regards,

    Anand.

    Hi Anand

     

    Passing the request through,  CA API Gateway  would allow it to add the normal SM_USER header and then that could be read in the Node.js script.   There is not a native "Node.js" agent as such for SSO.
