Query Engine can either allow or disallow anonymous queries. In anonymous mode, queries without authentication parameters (afs:user and/or afs:group) will display public documents. In authenticated mode (non-anonymous), a query without authentication parameters will be rejected.

Examples

  • Anonymous mode can be used for a web site with specific contents for registered users.
  • Authenticated mode can ensure a strict rights policy on an intranet portal.

Authenticated mode is the default setting, it can be changed by setting QEng/Agents/enableAnonymousQueries to true.
