Login credentials for iframe widget

Hi All,


I have a requirement for embedding a webpage from a different monitoring system (eg. http://abc.xyz/dashboard) in AppDynamics dashboard and this can be done using Iframe widget. This works perfectly if http://abc.xyz doesn't require any credentials to access but in my environment the URL requires to login and the challenge here is I cannot share the credentials with the users who use AppDynamics dashboard. Please let me know if there is a way by which I can embed the credentials in an the appdynamics dashboard itself.

Hi Mukesh,


The Iframe widget allows you to specify the URL for the target content.

The only way I can think of to provide credentials is to encode those credentials into the URL for the target.

Those credentials would not be visible to users of the dashboard, but would be visible to users who have "edit" privileges on the dashboard/widget. It would be necessary for the target of the iframe to support credentials passed in the URL, which is generally frowned upon.


Hope this helps,
