I have written a software packag that takes in IT service calls. (Again, simple form.) All the data collected is maintained in an Oracle database.
What I would like to do is pre-fill-in the Your Name field or Your Logon ID or who it is that is currently logged into the browser’s host so I can pre-fill in the name field automagically for them.
BUT, in that SAME regard, MS’ Outlook uses this principal. If the user is logged in (already) to the host via the domain, b IT /b doesn’t prompt for a username. The Application already knows who it is that is currently logged into the domain/host.
I am programming my application with Perl, CGI, running the Apache Web-Server. (On a Windows Server – (Not by MY choice))
CAN this be done? (Getting the logged-in username somehow, that is? So I can pre-fill in the application Name field for the end-user?
Thanks SO much for your time in advance.
