The SDK provides for some limited means to authenticate to the Host Access for the Cloud session server. If the server is using LDAP for authentication, you can provide credentials to the constructor options which will be used when making the connection to the session server.

You can find the JavaScript API documentation here:


var zfe = new ZFE.ZFE({
  url: 'http://zfe.company.com:7070/',
  target: document.getElementById('my-host-app'),
  username: 'johnsm',
  password: '12345',
  domain: 'CORPDOM'

zfe.connect().then(function (authenticated) {
  if (authenticated) {
    window.alert('user successfully authenticated');
  } else {
    window.alert('authentication failed');


If you are looking to pass information to sign on to the host, you should be able to accomplish this using macros.  Have a look at the 'Macro' section of the above documentation. 

If this is not what you are looking for, I suggest contacting support for assistance or to open an enhancement request for this functionality. emeasupport@microfocus.com

Thanks @Jeff B  For your valuable response 😊

                    I have seen in My current application we using Rumba Desktop 9.5 which we used to AS400 ActiveX control DLL which provides some methods to pass Data to emulator from code behind to AS400 Host System. Can we able to do that same using Reflection ZFE

Referenced DLLS:

  • AxInterop.ObjectXAS400DisplayAs400
  • AxInterop.ObjectXMFDisplay
  • Interop.ObjectXAS400DisplayAs400
  • Interop.ObjectXMFDisplay
    One of this provide an Emulator class ,and by using this this class some method we were able to send data to AS400 Host System

m_Emulator.GetScreen(text, 1, 1, 1)
