Hi, I'm building documentation for my desktop-product with RH8 and AIR SSL auto-update functionality. It looks like I need to expose any revision of my documentation on Internet for the auto-update. My company does not want to expose it freely since it is intellecual property. Is there a way to protect the revision with some authentication that would work with the AIR auto-update mechanism? Thanks in advance.
Same situation like ours! :-)
If your documentation on the internet is accessed using "https", then that's the link that will be used for auto-updating and thus an authentication box will be displayed anytime a request for an update is made.
P.S.: Any chance you encountered this problem with AIR and external links: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/422870?tstart=0
Thanks Kutra. I was hoping for a more seamless solution, but I guess I'd have to write documentation on how to update the documentation!
My wish would be to either:
1. have the updated .air file encrypted so that only the original AIR can consume it.
2. support HTTPs with username/password included in AIR (possibly using the Digital Certificate assigned in the app?)
Hopefully I'll see that in the next release!
