Silent Windows Authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying windows authentication for my application. I want it to happen silently, i.e the username and password should be picked up on it's own and authenticate or fail accordingly. I am able to achieve this in IE 11 and other major browsers, however I am not able to achieve this in Edge. In Edge it gives a popup asking for username and password every time a new window is open. I want to suppress this popup. Is this supported in Edge?

  • What you describe is called Windows Integrated Authentication.
