Autolog with windows username

Hi all,

I wonna use the windows variable %username% to autolog my users. I work for a school and teachers are identified by the AD.

I have a openfire server and the AD link is ok but users still have to give their password…

My goal is to link spark with the User, not the computer and to launch it at the session startup.

If someone have any idea, it would be great (i think it should be possible via the spark.properties file).

Thx in advance.

I think what you pursue is Single Sign On, taking the user and password (the security token) from the system environment and automatically login onto the system, without asking neither user nor password.

It can be done, but is a pain in the ass to make it work.
