Re: Alfresco 6.2 without using the login screen to open Word using AOS
In most scenarios, you can only hope to use AOS without login prompt if you set up a single sign-on (SSO) configuration against your domain controller, typically using Kerberos or potentially using AIMS with federated authentication to an IdP in your infrastructure. Since Office uses a different HTTP connection / session to your browser (this cannot be changed in any way - it is a separate process after all), it needs to authenticate that connection. Unless you use SSO, this necessitates the login screen. Setting up Kerberos is reasonably well documented. AIMS is poorly documented.
