ABL Reference
Handle Attributes and Methods Reference : PROXY-PASSWORD attribute


Authenticates an AppServer or Web service client to the HTTP-based proxy server.
Data type: Character
Access: Readable/Writeable
Applies to: SESSION system handle
This attribute corresponds to the -proxyPassword startup parameter. If -proxyPassword is not specified on the command line, this attribute has the Unknown value (?) until it is set.
This attribute is validated during the CONNECT( ) method (for an AppServer and a Web service). If PROXY-PASSWORD is invalid, the CONNECT( ) method fails and the AVM issues an error message. If PROXY-USERID is not unknown and PROXY-PASSWORD is unknown, the AppServer CONNECT( ) method uses a blank proxy password. If SESSION:PROXY-USERID is unknown, the CONNECT( ) method ignores any value of PROXY-PASSWORD. PROXY-PASSWORD must be a string of up to 512 printable ASCII characters.
