I have integrated BIRT into a web-app, however when I use Spring Security on the operations that BIRT uses for it's web-service datasource, then authentication fails as their is no session id present.

I'm using BIRT 3.7.2. I access a report with the following URL:


If I remove the authentication, then obviously all works well.

I'm using the Viewer example that ships with BIRT. My web.xml contains the session listener:

<!-- Viewer HttpSession Listener -->

If I try to append the JSESSIONID to the URL, it still doesn't work, seems that it makes a http POST after the initial GET, and this is where the session is lost.

Can anybody provide help on howto access web-service datasource with JSESSION id's in the soap headers?

Thanks in advance,

I do not believe the web service data source supports authentication. You could write a scripted data source that accesses the web service:
or use the custom connection class in the web service data source:
