Using the RTC API, how can we authenticate using Smartcards?

Hi there,

In a government environment, we are transitioning to using only Smartcards for logging in. For the normal clients, it works. However the normal clients are not enterprise level heavy with their utilities - for example, with 300 project areas in RTC alone, there are no built in tools for adding a user to multiple project areas at once.

So we followed the guidelines here and it works great. https://jazz.net/library/article/633

However, I can't find any resources explaining how to do this using Smartcard authentication. Soon we will not be able to use those mass user change scripts because we won't be able to use a Smartcard login with it.

Ideas?

I basically don't know that and don't have smart cards. You could try to contact support. Sharing here would be nice.

From https://www.google.com/search?q=smartcard+authentication+site:jazz.net

especially https://jazz.net/forum/questions/204855/smartcard-authentication-rtc-600 and https://jazz.net/library/article/75 I have to assume you need to pass the user's credentials consisting of the secure certificate provided by the smart card in the CURL login.

I was not able to find any link for hw this works with CURL (if at all) and this is really a CURL question. So another way to go is to ask e.g. at stackoverflow.com.

We ended up creating a java application to do mass user updates with a smartcard authentication.
