In order to generate certain workbooks, there may be a need to authenticate the user. Consequently, the user will be prompted with a Login window or will be logged on automatically if the user tries to export a PDF from a web browser.
In addition, the user can also send the connection credentials via Header values in order to be authenticated. This can be necessary if the user is using commands like wget to invoke the Server to generate PDFs.
* wget -O “Output.pdf” --header="username: username" --header="password: password" “http://[Server]/rest/pdf?Workbook=How+To+Actions”
