How can I use BIRT with a remote (http/https) data source that reqiures authentication?

Is it possible to use BIRT with a remote (http/https) XML data source that requires authentication?

  • Cookie based
  • HTTP authentication
  • SSL Client certificate

Any of the above would suffice.

Try to use HTTP based authentication with a syntax:


But anyway you can use scripted data source and construct a report via API. I.e. you can write a Java software that pass an authentication and get data, bind them to BIRT and generate output in BIRT internal or standard format (html,pdf,doc,xls etc.).

Thank you. Got it working with both HTTP Basic and Digest over HTTPS - serbaut 2009-06-18 10:14
