Re: Password checking for web service calls



fixed

James,
I believe that if the profile/password is not valid, the API will return an
error that you can test.

Have you thought of using the QSYCHGPR (Change last signed on date)
API in conjunction with a profile swap/unswap?


There is no profile swap/unswap involved. In this, or in any other
client-server product we've developed. That's why I've never actually used
the profile handle returned from QSYGETPH. And the indirect way we spawn
child-server jobs virtually guarantees that the 20k limit on any given
job's profile handles can never be approached, much less exceeded.

The problem is that this doesn't apply to a web service (which, unlike a
child-server job, has no real reason to run under the user's profile).

And what does a call to an API that updates the last-signed-on date have
to do with password checking, anyway?
