Introduction: 

Essentially, you employ this method to perform the Web Viewer generic login “under the covers” and give the impression that the user is initially being challenged for their mainframe or repository credentials.

Question: 

How do I bypass the Web Viewer login screen and go directly to the mainframe UserID and login?

Environment:  

Windows 2008/2012 R2 Server

Answer: 

To bypass the Web Viewer login screen and go directly to the mainframe UserID and login, do the following:

 

  1. Define a GENERIC UserID in the Admin Tool.

Cut/paste the link that is created in the URL text box, i.e.
http://<server>/DVWebScripts/CADocVw.dll?LoginMethod&access_type=DirectLogin& access_token=GENERIC

***Replace <server> with your server name WITHOUT the brackets***

This will be the link users can use for direct login.
