[Auth] checks the current authentication values which were sent with the HTTP header. If they correspond to a valid username and password in Lasso Administration then no action is performed. The page is processed normally with the permissions of the user.

Otherwise, the visitor is prompted with an authentication dialog. They will not be able to see the format file which contains this tag unless they specific a valid username and password from Lasso Administration.

This tag works similarly to the [Auth_Admin] tag.




No Parameters Required.


To prompt the site visitor with an authentication dialog:

Use the [Auth] tag. The tag will prevent the page from being served to the current visitor unless they provide the username and password of a valid user from Lasso Administration in their browser's authentication dialog box.
