Login with DragnetWebService API

Post by mskrobul » Mon Jan 10, 2005 10:58 am

The LoginPlainText() api is the simplest way to login using the Dragnet Web Service api. Note that since the password is sent in plain text, the connection between the your application and the Dragnet web service should be secure.

A basic example for login follows:

Code: Select all

//Assuming Dragnet is the name of the web reference
Dragnet.DragnetWebService _dragnetService = null;

public bool Login()
			int ret = -1;

			_dragnetService = null;

			CookieContainer cc = new CookieContainer();

			_dragnetService = new Dragnet.DragnetWebService();
			_dragnetService.CookieContainer = cc;
			_dragnetService.Url = "http://localhost/dragnet/dragnetwebservice.asmx";

			string strAuthTicket = null;

			ret = _dragnetService.LoginPlainText("username", "password", out strAuthTicket);

			if (ret == 0)
				_dragnetService.DragnetAuthValue = new Dragnet.DragnetAuth();
				_dragnetService.DragnetAuthValue.Token = strAuthTicket;
				return true;
				return false;

If the login is successful, you can perform operations that require a login using the web service, for example:
