HTTP AAA Server Configuration


I'm trying to setup a Tableau applicaiton server behind a Big-IP using Kerberos but the server admins are having problems with their configuration. As a fallback, I'm trying to setup a HTTP AAA server with custom post for the authentication type. I can't test the configuration unless the admins abandon Kerberos, and we don't have any other websites using HTTP authentication, but I wanted to go ahead and configure the other AAA server just in case. Can anyone provide any insight for these questions:


  1. I set the successful logon detection type to "By Specific String in Response" and I need to set the "Successful Logon Detection Match Value" to not -1. Is any REGEX syntax acceptable in this field?


  2. I need to send post data for the username and IP address. Can I pull these values from APM session variables, i.e. client_ip=%{session.user.clientip} ?
