cgi.auth_user not staying set

Jul 2, 2012 10:59 AM

I had CF8 running on iis7 and this used to work fine.  When a user logged into IIS7 with windows authentication, the cgi.auth_user variable would stay set the entire time they were in the particular folder that required authentication.


I just upgraded to CF10 and iis7.5 and now, when a user logs into a folder that requires windows authentication, the cgi.auth_user variable is set for just the page which required authentication, when they travel to the next page(s) via links, the cgi.auth_user variable is changed to NULL.


The entire folder is set to require windows authentication, but no cgi.auth_user value is set...


Can anybody help?

    Hey there, we're running into the same thing.


    When you mean Server level, are you talking about the IIS Site itself?


    Sites->{site name}->Authentication->Windows Authentication = Enabled


    We have that set, and it generally works... but then randomly doesn't and users have to reopen their browser.

    Has anyone been able to get this to work with CF10 and IIS 8.5 (Win Server 2012 R2)?


    When we do this on IIS 8.5 the session still drops.
