Embed Username and Password in URL

ganske @ Tue Apr 08 15:06:23 EEST 2014
Is there anyway to embed the username and password in to the URL. We have a user that when he sends the URL {site}{folder}{sub folder} it prompts for login and goes to the base folder. If they access the URL after logging in, it will take them directly to the folder as intended.

Is there a way to send them directly in to a folder without prompt?

Hi, Ganske.

You should use the share and that does everything you are asking for.

Let us know.

I understand that Sharing is an option but Sharing places a temporary life on a login and password. Is there a way to embed the original ftp username and password so they can send direct links to folders instead of drilling down?

You create custom link, like:{user}&p={pass} or{user}&p={pass}&path=/{name} or{user}&p={pass}&path=/{the_fiel_path}{name}

Awesome. Is there a way to auto-populate the fields and copy them to a clipboard? For example, putting a right-click action in that says Link that fills in those fields in to the clipboard?

There is a right click and copy link...but we don't expose the user/pass in there for security reasons. So you would have to do that part yourself if you wanted to.
