Authenticate with IBM Domino via a Node.js Application to Extract a Session Cookie
This lesson will explain how we can authenticate with Domino via a NodeJS application.
We will use a standard html login page which will be posted to our NodeJS application which in turn will attempt to login with Domino.
If successful the Domino Session ID will be extracted from the Domino response and sent back to client application where it can be subsequently used for further requests.
If the login fails then a 401 HTTP status code is returned to the client.
It will also show how we deal with Domino's strange HTTP status codes when trying to login.
