In addition to the homepage (landing page), the following pages of the PicApport web interface can be accessed directly via URL's.

Prerequisite is that there is a public user PicApport with password picapport or
a user is linked to the IP address of the browser (WLAN). (See also: PicApport - Usermanagement)
Since version 9.1 a user can also be logged in automatically via the atu parameter (AccessToken).

The examples below refer to the PicApport demo page as of August 2017.

picapport#home

This is the landing page (home page) of PicApport. (#home is optional and can be omitted but must be set when using the atu parameter).

Parameter

Name

Required

Default

Description

atu

no

not set

atu = Access-Token-User (since version 9.1)

An AccessToken can optionally be generated by the administrator for a user via the web interface of the user administration.

With AccessTokens it is possible to start a PicApport session for a specific user account directly by calling it with a URL without the need to enter a user ID and password.

We strongly recommend to use AccessTokens in public accessible networks only with activated https encryption.

Example: https://mypicapportserver.com/picapport#home?atu=0r52e4TKqiSXgxFByxKpyA
Opens the PicApport start page and automatically logs in the user with the AccessToken 0r52e4TKqiSXgxFByxKpyA.

Example URL's

(Please note that no AccessTokens are configured for the demos. So the logon page appears)
