Alfresco 6.2 without using the login screen to open Word using AOS

Hi,

I need to use Alfresco Share with the AOS feature to open .doc documents, for example.

Every time I'm going to edit a document using the Edit MS-Office action from Share, Word opens an authentication window.

I am looking to use editing by AOS - Office and what is the best strategy for this?

I am using the SSL-enabled docker-compose.yml, but Word still asks for credentials to open the document. I tried to use the Windows registry procedure without success.

Authentication is using chain: Ntlm and LDAP-AD.

Is there a roadmap for you to follow?

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.
