    Is there a way to programmatically pass in the password for a password-protected report?  I want to integrate our single-signon solution with the secure reporting options shown here.

    I create a report for a form in JotForm and then I password protect it.  Normally, this means I'd browse to the URL for the report, enter a password, and then see the report.In our enterprise we need to give multiple people access to the same report, but we don't want to give them the report password, and we would like to use our existing single signon solution as a means of ensuring that only those users can see the report.So what I want to do is "slip in" the password to the report after these users successfully authenticate, and then show them the report.

    Unfortunately, it is required to enter the password manually to unlock the report. I am not sure if that helps, but as I understand, since your enterprise is already having a password protect feature, I think it may be a better idea if you can embed the report which is not password protected in your enterprise software using iframe.

    Let us know if you have any questions. Thanks!
