I think the normal remoting situation, ColdFusion populates the CFLOGIN scope?
I see Ray Camden has a relevant blog posting on his experiments with this
... but I'm not sure whether DataService CFC Assemblers are different?
I jsut tested that. Inside the assembler cfc accessed by DataService, "Variable CFLOGIN is undefined."
But thanks anyway.
It's probably a little late for your question but it might benefit others
I had the same problem you're describing, it seems you can't just access the CFLOGIN.NAME and CFLOGIN.PASSWORD variabele.
They are only available within a <cflogin> </cflogin> block.
I'm new to coldfusion so i have no idea why (trying it to figure that out now).
