Authenticates the user. If a model is open, it is closed first. Calling this function is not mandatory in script functions: if no user is authenticated when some other script function is called, login dialog is shown and the user can authenticate during the execution of the script (if the user interface is not hidden, see SetUIMode).

 

Synopsis:

 

PGApplication.Authenticate(User, Password, Domain)

 

Parameters:

 

User: Username for logging into the server. String.

Password: Password of the user defined in the User parameter. String.

Domain: The domain that contains the user account defined in the User parameter. Can be left empty if NT authentication is not used. String

 

If empty parameters are given, authentication is done with Integrated Windows Authentication. See Security Level for Executing QPR Script for instructions on how to allow IWA.

 

Required Rights:

 

None.
