I tried using X-Requested-With header to make HTTP-based requests using the CLIENT_CERT authentication module but it is giving me “403 Forbidden access” error while using IDM 6.5 but it works fine in IDM 7.
Can someone please help in providing details on how to make HTTP-based requests using the CLIENT_CERT authentication in IDM 6.5?
The Authorization and Access Control implementation has changed between v6.5 and v7.0. A 403 message indicates authorization related issue. I would suggest to set logging at FINE or FINEST and look for the actual exception. If it’s authorization related which is very likely, check script/access.js for /managed/user related access rules.
