Login confirmation to access KM files

Hi experts,

I would like to show a window requesting login/password when a user tries to access to a file stored in KM (via url) and the user is not authenticated.

Currently, in this scenario, the browser shows the following error:


The requested operation is forbidden for this resource. You do not have the permissions required to access this resource.

I want a login/password window to avoid this message.

Any ideas?

Best regards.

Try these

goto content admin -- portal content -content provided by sap- enduser content - standard portal users - iviews - km.iviews -URL access - KM Document Iview --property category - Authentication Scheme - set it to basic authentication

also look into SAP Note: 993579

Hope this helps u
