Possible to choose repository in url

Hi,

customer have a AAF with 2 external repositorys specified. One is E-dir and the other AD. All users in AD also exist in E-dir, not the other way around. So more users in E-dir
We usually use E-dir as main repository for AAF, but as far as I know the new IIS plugin only works with AD we do need to use that too.
Since all AD users is in E-dir to the users get prompted to specify which repo to use, is there a way to bypass that in the url.
The option to use reponame\username is not super convenient for users since they don't know what to choose there.
But if we could publish a link with the right repo that would be a solution.
Any suggestions?

Hi Lelle,

We had a similar request from another customer, but they needed it for Linux and Mac, so we are adding a "default repo" option for the Linux and Mac clients in 6.3. This option allows to ignore the repository order in the Login Options policy. It seems you need the same for IIS plugin.

Please file it to the best and proper place for the new enhancement requests: https://ideas.microfocus.com/MFI/advance-authentication/
