OAuth Component

Properties   Methods   Events   Configuration Settings   Errors  

The OAuth component is used to authorize a client and provide an authorization string used in future requests.

Syntax

IPWorks.Oauth

Remarks

The OAuth component supports both plaintext and SSL/TLS connections. When connecting over SSL/TLS the SSLServerAuthentication event allows you to check the server identity and other security attributes. The SSLStatus event provides information about the SSL handshake. Additional SSL related settings are also supported via the Config method.

The OAuth component provides an easy way to obtain an authorization string for future requests to a service. The component implements an OAuth 2.0 client.

To begin using the component you will first need to register your application with the service you want to use. During this process you should obtain a ClientId and ClientSecret as well as the ServerAuthURL and ServerTokenURL for the authorization server. Then set ClientProfile to the client type that best describes your situation and call GetAuthorization.

The following client types are currently supported by the component:

  • Application (desktop application)
  • WebServer (server side application such as a web site)
  • Device (an application without browser access such as a game console)
  • Mobile (phone or tablet application)
  • JWT (server to server authentication using a JWT bearer token such as Google service account authentication)
Please see the detailed descriptions below for each client type and how the component is used to authorize an application using that client type.

Application Client Type

The application client type is applicable to applications that are run by the user directly. For instance a windows form application would use the application client type. To authorize your application (client) using the application client type follow the steps below.

First, set ClientProfile to cfApplication. This defines the client type the component will use. Set the ClientId, ClientSecret, ServerAuthURL, and ServerTokenURL to the values you obtained when registering your application.

Next, call GetAuthorization to begin the authorization process. When GetAuthorization is called the component will build the URL to which the user will be directed and fire the LaunchBrowser event. The component will then launch the browser using the command and URL shown in the LaunchBrowser event and await the response. The duration which the component will wait for a response is defined by BrowserResponseTimeout.

The user will interact with the browser to authenticate and grant access to the connecting application. The user will then be redirected back to an embedded web server that was automatically started when GetAuthorization was called. At this time the ReturnURL event will fire. This event provides an opportunity to provide a custom response to your user that they will see in their browser.

The component will then automatically exchange the grant that was returned by the authorization server for the access token using the HTTP endpoint specified in ServerTokenURL.

The authorization is now complete and the GetAuthorization method will return the authorization string. To use the authorization string with any of our components simply pass this value to the Authorization property before making the request.

A simple example is shown below. component.ClientId = "MyId"; component.ClientSecret = "MyPassword"; component.ServerAuthURL = "https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth"; component.ServerTokenURL = "https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/token"; HTTP.Authorization = component.GetAuthorization(); HTTP.Get("https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v1/userinfo");

WebServer Client Type

The WebServer client type is applicable to applications that are run on the server side where the user uses the application from a web browser. To authorize your application (client) using this client type follow the steps below.

First, set ClientProfile to cfWebServer. This defines the client type the component will use. Set the ClientId, ClientSecret, ServerAuthURL, and ServerTokenURL to the values you obtained when registering your application. Set ReturnURL to the page on your site that will be the endpoint the user is redirected back to after authentication.

Next, call GetAuthorizationURL. This will return a URL to which the user should be redirected. Redirect the user to this URL.

After the user authenticates and is returned to the page on your site specified by ReturnURL, parse the "code" query string parameter from the incoming request. Set AuthorizationCode to this value.

Call GetAuthorization to exchange the code specified in AuthorizationCode for a token from the server specified by ServerTokenURL. GetAuthorization returns the authorization string. To use the authorization string with any of our components simply pass this value to the Authorization property before making the request.

Device Client Type

The Device client type is applicable to applications that are run on devices where no web browser can be used. For instance a game console would use the device client type. To authorize your application (client) using the device client type follow the steps below.

First, set ClientProfile to cfDevice. This defines the client type the component will use. Set the ClientId, ClientSecret, ServerAuthURL, and ServerTokenURL to the values you obtained when registering your application. Do not set ReturnURL.

Next, call GetAuthorizationURL. The component will automatically make a request to ServerAuthURL to obtain a user code for the device. The GetAuthorizationURL method will return the URL your user must visit from another device or computer that has web browser support. The GetAuthorizationURL method will also populate DeviceUserCode. This device user code must also be provided to the user. The user will enter the code at the URL returned by GetAuthorizationURL.

At this time, call GetAuthorization. The component will begin polling the server specified in ServerTokenURL. The polling interval is specified (in seconds) by the PollingInterval setting.

After the user has authenticated, the GetAuthorization method will return the authorization string. To use the authorization string with any of our components simply pass this value to the Authorization property before making the request.

Mobile Client Type

The Mobile client type is applicable to applications that are run on devices where a web browser can be used. For instance a mobile phone or tablet. The behavior when using this client type is very similar to the Application client type. The only difference between the Mobile and Application client types is the way the browser is launched, when set to Mobile the LaunchBrowser event will fire but the component will not attempt to launch the browser automatically. The browser must be launched manually from code. This behavior is the only difference between the Mobile and Application client type. Please read the steps above for the Application client type for a more detailed look at the process.

JWT Bearer Token (Server to Server) Type

The JWT (JSON Web Token) Bearer Token type is available for server to server authentication. For instance this may be used by web applications to access a Google service. In this case the application will access data on behalf of the service account, not the end user. End user interaction is not required.

First, specify AuthorizationScope ServerTokenURL and JWTServiceProvider.

Next specify JWT specific values. The use of the JWT profile also requires additional configuration settings to be specified, including a certificate with private key used to sign the JWT. Either specify the JWTJSONKey configuration setting, which will parse the necessary information automatically, or manually specify the following configuration settings:

Additional fields may be added to the JWT using the AddParam method.

Example (Google): oauth.AuthorizationScope = "https://www.googleapis.com/auth/analytics"; oauth.ServerTokenURL = "https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v3/token"; oauth.ClientProfile = OauthClientProfiles.cfJWT; oauth.Config("JWTServiceProvider=0"); oauth.Config("JWTIssuer=111917875427-g39d5bar90mjgiuf2n5ases9qk0j2q0p@developer.gserviceaccount.com"); oauth.Config("JWTAudience=https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v3/token"); oauth.Config("JWTCertStoreType=2"); oauth.Config("JWTCertStore=C:\\MyCertificate.p12"); oauth.Config("JWTCertStorePassword=password"); oauth.Config("JWTCertSubject=*"); oauth.Config("JWTValidityTime=5400"); //in seconds string authStr = oauth.GetAuthorization();

Example (Microsoft): oauth.ClientId = "Client_Id"; oauth.ClientProfile = OauthClientProfiles.cfJWT; oauth.AuthorizationScope = "https://graph.microsoft.com/.default"; oauth.ServerTokenURL = "https://login.microsoftonline.com/" + tenant_id + "/oauth2/V2.0/token"; oauth.Config("JWTCertStoreType=2"); oauth.Config("JWTCertStore=C:\\MyCertificate.p12"); oauth.Config("JWTCertStorePassword=password"); oauth.Config("JWTCertSubject=*"); oauth.Config("JWTValidityTime=3600"); oauth.Config("JWTAudience=https://login.microsoftonline.com/"+ tenant_id + "/oauth2/V2.0/token"); string authStr = oauth.GetAuthorization();

Microsoft Admin Consent Type

The Microsoft Admin Consent type is used when setting up application permissions for apps that authenticate to Microsoft. Typically this type is used in the client credentials grant flow so that the admin can consent to the scopes that are defined by the App's registration in Azure Portal. After the app has been registered, the Application (client) ID will need to be set to the ClientId property. Also, a registered return URL must be set to the ReturnURL property.

When the GetAuthorization method is called, the component will fire the LaunchBrowser event and open the admin consent page URL (eg. https://login.microsoftonline.com/common/adminconsent?client_id=CLIENT_ID&redirect_uri=URL). At the same time, the component will start an embedded webserver that will be used to receive the results from the redirect URI.

If the Admin consents to the scopes, the redirect URI will supply the tenant ID of the admin. The tenant ID can be accessed through the Microsoft365AdminConsentTenant configuration and is often needed for authenticating a client later (eg. Client Credentials Grant Flow). Once the Admin consents once, they typically will not need to go through the process again unless the scopes of the application change.

If the Admin does not consent to the scopes, the redirect URI will give an error message and a description of the error. The error message can be found in the Microsoft365AdminConsentError configuration setting and the error description can be found in the Microsoft365AdminConsentErrorDesc configuration setting. Additionally the component throws an exception.

For example: oauth.ClientId = "Client_ID"; oauth.ClientProfile = OauthClientProfiles.cfMicrosoft365AdminConsent; oauth.WebServerPort = 8888; oauth.ReturnURL = "http://localhost:8888"; oauth.GetAuthorization(); string tenant = oauth.Config("Microsoft365AdminConsentTenant");

Custom Responses

When using a profile type that makes use of the embedded web server the response that is displayed to the user on success of failure may be customized to include a variety of product and company specific information. The following section is only applicable when the embedded web server is used, for instance when ClientProfile is set to cfApplication.

By default the component will display a formatted result message indicating whether the authorization succeeded or failed. The below optional settings control the text of the message as well as product images, company logos, and links for help or licensing terms that can be displayed to the user.

AccessToken Property (OAuth Component)

The access token returned by the authorization server.

Syntax


public String getAccessToken();


public void setAccessToken(String accessToken);

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property will be populated with the access token returned by the authorization server after a call to GetAuthorization. This will be the raw access token, whereas the return value from the GetAuthorization method will also include the required data so it can be passed directly to the Authorization property of the components or added as the value of the Authorization header in another client implementation.

AuthorizationCode Property (OAuth Component)

The authorization code that is exchanged for an access token.

Syntax


public String getAuthorizationCode();


public void setAuthorizationCode(String authorizationCode);

Default Value

""

Remarks

When ClientProfile is set to cfWebServer (WebServer flow) the authorization server will return a code when the user is re-directed from the authorization server back to your website. This code is returned as a query string parameter and the component will automatically populate this property with that value.

Normally this property will only be informational, as the GetAuthorization method will automatically exchange this code for a token with the authorization server specified in ServerTokenURL.

If this property is set before calling GetAuthorization the component will attempt to exchange the code with the authorization server for an access token.

This property is not available at design time.

AuthorizationScope Property (OAuth Component)

The scope request or response parameter used during authorization.

Syntax


public String getAuthorizationScope();


public void setAuthorizationScope(String authorizationScope);

Default Value

""

Remarks

If the scope is not set, the authorization server will use the default access scope for your application as determined by the server. To request a specific access scope set this property to a space separated list of strings as defined by the authorization server.

After calling GetAuthorization this property will be updated with the scope sent in the response from the server and will indicate the scope that was actually granted.

ClientId Property (OAuth Component)

The id of the client assigned when registering the application.

Syntax


public String getClientId();


public void setClientId(String clientId);

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property holds the id of the client that was assigned when initially registering the application with the authorization server. This value must be specified before calling GetAuthorization or GetAuthorizationURL.

ClientProfile Property (OAuth Component)

The type of client that is requesting authorization.

Syntax


public int getClientProfile();


public void setClientProfile(int clientProfile);

Enumerated values:
  public final static int cfApplication = 0;

  public final static int cfWebServer = 1;

  public final static int cfDevice = 2;

  public final static int cfMobile = 3;

  public final static int cfJWT = 4;

  public final static int cfMicrosoft365AdminConsent = 5;

Default Value

0

Remarks

This defines the type of client that will be requesting authorization. Set this before calling GetAuthorization to inform the component to act accordingly. Possible values are:

0 (cfApplication - default) User application such as a windows form application
1 (cfWebServer) Server side application such as a website
2 (cfDevice) Device application without a browser such as a game console
3 (cfMobile) Mobile application with browser support such as a smart phone or tablet
4 (cfBrowser) Client side browser application such as JavaScript
5 (cfJWT) Server to Server authentication using a JWT Bearer Token
6 (cfMicrosoft365AdminConsent) Admin consent for Microsoft API application scopes

Application Client Type

The application client type is applicable to applications that are run by the user directly. For instance a windows form application would use the application client type. To authorize your application (client) using the application client type follow the steps below.

First, set ClientProfile to cfApplication. This defines the client type the component will use. Set the ClientId, ClientSecret, ServerAuthURL, and ServerTokenURL to the values you obtained when registering your application.

Next, call GetAuthorization to begin the authorization process. When GetAuthorization is called the component will build the URL to which the user will be directed and fire the LaunchBrowser event. The component will then launch the browser using the command and URL shown in the LaunchBrowser event and await the response. The duration which the component will wait for a response is defined by BrowserResponseTimeout.

The user will interact with the browser to authenticate and grant access to the connecting application. The user will then be redirected back to an embedded web server that was automatically started when GetAuthorization was called. At this time the ReturnURL event will fire. This event provides an opportunity to provide a custom response to your user that they will see in their browser.

The component will then automatically exchange the grant that was returned by the authorization server for the access token using the HTTP endpoint specified in ServerTokenURL.

The authorization is now complete and the GetAuthorization method will return the authorization string. To use the authorization string with any of our components simply pass this value to the Authorization property before making the request.

A simple example is shown below. component.ClientId = "MyId"; component.ClientSecret = "MyPassword"; component.ServerAuthURL = "https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth"; component.ServerTokenURL = "https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/token"; HTTP.Authorization = component.GetAuthorization(); HTTP.Get("https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v1/userinfo");

WebServer Client Type

The WebServer client type is applicable to applications that are run on the server side where the user uses the application from a web browser. To authorize your application (client) using this client type follow the steps below.

First, set ClientProfile to cfWebServer. This defines the client type the component will use. Set the ClientId, ClientSecret, ServerAuthURL, and ServerTokenURL to the values you obtained when registering your application. Set ReturnURL to the page on your site that will be the endpoint the user is redirected back to after authentication.

Next, call GetAuthorizationURL. This will return a URL to which the user should be redirected. Redirect the user to this URL.

After the user authenticates and is returned to the page on your site specified by ReturnURL, parse the "code" query string parameter from the incoming request. Set AuthorizationCode to this value.

Call GetAuthorization to exchange the code specified in AuthorizationCode for a token from the server specified by ServerTokenURL. GetAuthorization returns the authorization string. To use the authorization string with any of our components simply pass this value to the Authorization property before making the request.

Device Client Type

The Device client type is applicable to applications that are run on devices where no web browser can be used. For instance a game console would use the device client type. To authorize your application (client) using the device client type follow the steps below.

First, set ClientProfile to cfDevice. This defines the client type the component will use. Set the ClientId, ClientSecret, ServerAuthURL, and ServerTokenURL to the values you obtained when registering your application. Do not set ReturnURL.

Next, call GetAuthorizationURL. The component will automatically make a request to ServerAuthURL to obtain a user code for the device. The GetAuthorizationURL method will return the URL your user must visit from another device or computer that has web browser support. The GetAuthorizationURL method will also populate DeviceUserCode. This device user code must also be provided to the user. The user will enter the code at the URL returned by GetAuthorizationURL.

At this time, call GetAuthorization. The component will begin polling the server specified in ServerTokenURL. The polling interval is specified (in seconds) by the PollingInterval setting.

After the user has authenticated, the GetAuthorization method will return the authorization string. To use the authorization string with any of our components simply pass this value to the Authorization property before making the request.

Mobile Client Type

The Mobile client type is applicable to applications that are run on devices where a web browser can be used. For instance a mobile phone or tablet. The behavior when using this client type is very similar to the Application client type. The only difference between the Mobile and Application client types is the way the browser is launched, when set to Mobile the LaunchBrowser event will fire but the component will not attempt to launch the browser automatically. The browser must be launched manually from code. This behavior is the only difference between the Mobile and Application client type. Please read the steps above for the Application client type for a more detailed look at the process.

JWT Bearer Token (Server to Server) Type

The JWT (JSON Web Token) Bearer Token type is available for server to server authentication. For instance this may be used by web applications to access a Google service. In this case the application will access data on behalf of the service account, not the end user. End user interaction is not required.

First, specify AuthorizationScope ServerTokenURL and JWTServiceProvider.

Next specify JWT specific values. The use of the JWT profile also requires additional configuration settings to be specified, including a certificate with private key used to sign the JWT. Either specify the JWTJSONKey configuration setting, which will parse the necessary information automatically, or manually specify the following configuration settings:

Additional fields may be added to the JWT using the AddParam method.

Example (Google): oauth.AuthorizationScope = "https://www.googleapis.com/auth/analytics"; oauth.ServerTokenURL = "https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v3/token"; oauth.ClientProfile = OauthClientProfiles.cfJWT; oauth.Config("JWTServiceProvider=0"); oauth.Config("JWTIssuer=111917875427-g39d5bar90mjgiuf2n5ases9qk0j2q0p@developer.gserviceaccount.com"); oauth.Config("JWTAudience=https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v3/token"); oauth.Config("JWTCertStoreType=2"); oauth.Config("JWTCertStore=C:\\MyCertificate.p12"); oauth.Config("JWTCertStorePassword=password"); oauth.Config("JWTCertSubject=*"); oauth.Config("JWTValidityTime=5400"); //in seconds string authStr = oauth.GetAuthorization();

Example (Microsoft): oauth.ClientId = "Client_Id"; oauth.ClientProfile = OauthClientProfiles.cfJWT; oauth.AuthorizationScope = "https://graph.microsoft.com/.default"; oauth.ServerTokenURL = "https://login.microsoftonline.com/" + tenant_id + "/oauth2/V2.0/token"; oauth.Config("JWTCertStoreType=2"); oauth.Config("JWTCertStore=C:\\MyCertificate.p12"); oauth.Config("JWTCertStorePassword=password"); oauth.Config("JWTCertSubject=*"); oauth.Config("JWTValidityTime=3600"); oauth.Config("JWTAudience=https://login.microsoftonline.com/"+ tenant_id + "/oauth2/V2.0/token"); string authStr = oauth.GetAuthorization();

Microsoft Admin Consent Type

The Microsoft Admin Consent type is used when setting up application permissions for apps that authenticate to Microsoft. Typically this type is used in the client credentials grant flow so that the admin can consent to the scopes that are defined by the App's registration in Azure Portal. After the app has been registered, the Application (client) ID will need to be set to the ClientId property. Also, a registered return URL must be set to the ReturnURL property.

When the GetAuthorization method is called, the component will fire the LaunchBrowser event and open the admin consent page URL (eg. https://login.microsoftonline.com/common/adminconsent?client_id=CLIENT_ID&redirect_uri=URL). At the same time, the component will start an embedded webserver that will be used to receive the results from the redirect URI.

If the Admin consents to the scopes, the redirect URI will supply the tenant ID of the admin. The tenant ID can be accessed through the Microsoft365AdminConsentTenant configuration and is often needed for authenticating a client later (eg. Client Credentials Grant Flow). Once the Admin consents once, they typically will not need to go through the process again unless the scopes of the application change.

If the Admin does not consent to the scopes, the redirect URI will give an error message and a description of the error. The error message can be found in the Microsoft365AdminConsentError configuration setting and the error description can be found in the Microsoft365AdminConsentErrorDesc configuration setting. Additionally the component throws an exception.

For example: oauth.ClientId = "Client_ID"; oauth.ClientProfile = OauthClientProfiles.cfMicrosoft365AdminConsent; oauth.WebServerPort = 8888; oauth.ReturnURL = "http://localhost:8888"; oauth.GetAuthorization(); string tenant = oauth.Config("Microsoft365AdminConsentTenant");

ClientSecret Property (OAuth Component)

The secret value for the client assigned when registering the application.

Syntax


public String getClientSecret();


public void setClientSecret(String clientSecret);

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property holds the secret of the client that was assigned when initially registering the application with the authorization server. This value must be specified before calling GetAuthorization or GetAuthorizationURL.

Connected Property (OAuth Component)

Shows whether the component is connected.

Syntax


public boolean isConnected();


public void setConnected(boolean connected);

Default Value

False

Remarks

This property is used to determine whether or not the component is connected to the remote host.

Note: It is recommended to use the Connect or Disconnect method instead of setting this property.

This property is not available at design time.

Cookies Property (OAuth Component)

Collection of cookies.

Syntax


public HTTPCookieList getCookies();


public void setCookies(HTTPCookieList cookies);

Remarks

This property contains a collection of cookies. To add cookies to outgoing HTTP requests, add cookies (of type HTTPCookie) to this collection.

To see cookies that are set by the server, use the SetCookie event, which displays the cookies and their properties as set by the server. Those cookies are also added to Cookies.

MaxHTTPCookies can be used to control the maximum number of cookies saved.

This collection is indexed from 0 to size - 1.

This property is not available at design time.

Firewall Property (OAuth Component)

A set of properties related to firewall access.

Syntax


public Firewall getFirewall();


public void setFirewall(Firewall firewall);

Remarks

This is a Firewall type property which contains fields describing the firewall through which the component will attempt to connect.

FollowRedirects Property (OAuth Component)

Determines what happens when the server issues a redirect.

Syntax


public int getFollowRedirects();


public void setFollowRedirects(int followRedirects);

Enumerated values:
  public final static int frNever = 0;

  public final static int frAlways = 1;

  public final static int frSameScheme = 2;

Default Value

0

Remarks

This property determines what happens when the server issues a redirect. Normally, the component returns an error if the server responds with an "Object Moved" message. If this property is set to frAlways (1), the new URL for the object is retrieved automatically every time.

If this property is set to frSameScheme (2), the new URL is retrieved automatically only if the URLScheme is the same, otherwise the component throws an exception.

Note that following the HTTP specification, unless this property is set to frAlways (1), automatic redirects will be performed only for 'GET' or 'HEAD' requests. Other methods could potentially change the conditions of the initial request and create security vulnerabilities.

Furthermore, if either the new URL server and port are different than the existing one, User and Password are also reset to empty, unless this property is set to frAlways (1), in which case the same credentials are used to connect to the new server.

A Redirect event is fired for every URL the product is redirected to. In the case of automatic redirections, the Redirect event is a good place to set properties related to the new connection (e.g. new authentication parameters).

The default value is frNever (0). In this case, redirects are never followed, and the component throws an exception instead.

GrantType Property (OAuth Component)

The OAuth grant type used to acquire an OAuth access token.

Syntax


public int getGrantType();


public void setGrantType(int grantType);

Enumerated values:
  public final static int ogtAuthorizationCode = 0;

  public final static int ogtImplicit = 1;

  public final static int ogtPassword = 2;

  public final static int ogtClientCredentials = 3;

Default Value

0

Remarks

This setting specifies the type of grant to obtain. In most cases the Authorization Code grant type (default) is used, so it is typically not necessary to change this. The supported values are:

  • 0 (Authorization Code - Default)
  • 1 (Implicit)
  • 2 (Resource Owner Password Credentials)
  • 3 (Client Credentials)

For all grant types listed set ClientProfile to Application.

The Authorization Code grant is the most commonly used grant type. It follows the flow described for the Application Client Type section in the OAuth introduction page.

Implicit grants are similar to Authorization Code, except that a Bearer token is returned directly from the authorization server without requiring a second step to exchange a code for a bearer token. To use this grant type set:

And call GetAuthorization.

The Resource Owner Password Credentials grant type may be used to authenticate on behalf of a resource owner with the owner's credentials. Authentication is performed directly and the user is not prompted to authenticate the application. To use this grant type set:

And call GetAuthorization.

The Client Credentials grant type is typically used for server-to-server authentication. The client authenticates directly to the authentication server and receives a token without any user interaction. To use this grant type set:

And call GetAuthorization.

Idle Property (OAuth Component)

The current status of the component.

Syntax


public boolean isIdle();


Default Value

True

Remarks

Idle will be False if the component is currently busy (communicating and/or waiting for an answer), and True at all other times.

This property is read-only.

LocalHost Property (OAuth Component)

The name of the local host or user-assigned IP interface through which connections are initiated or accepted.

Syntax


public String getLocalHost();


public void setLocalHost(String localHost);

Default Value

""

Remarks

The LocalHost property contains the name of the local host as obtained by the gethostname() system call, or if the user has assigned an IP address, the value of that address.

In multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface) setting LocalHost to the value of an interface will make the component initiate connections (or accept in the case of server components) only through that interface.

If the component is connected, the LocalHost property shows the IP address of the interface through which the connection is made in internet dotted format (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd). In most cases, this is the address of the local host, except for multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface).

NOTE: LocalHost is not persistent. You must always set it in code, and never in the property window.

OtherHeaders Property (OAuth Component)

Other headers as determined by the user (optional).

Syntax


public String getOtherHeaders();


public void setOtherHeaders(String otherHeaders);

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property can be set to a string of headers to be appended to the HTTP request headers created from other properties like ContentType, From, etc.

The headers must be of the format "header: value" as described in the HTTP specifications. Header lines should be separated by CRLF ("\r\n") .

Use this property with caution. If this property contains invalid headers, HTTP requests may fail.

This property is useful for extending the functionality of the component beyond what is provided.

This property is not available at design time.

Params Property (OAuth Component)

The parameters to be included in the request to the authorization server, or received in the response.

Syntax


public OAuthParamList getParams();


public void setParams(OAuthParamList params);

Remarks

This is a collection of query string parameters to be added in the request when creating the authorization URL. This will also hold the parameters returned in the response.

This property is not available at design time.

Proxy Property (OAuth Component)

A set of properties related to proxy access.

Syntax


public Proxy getProxy();


public void setProxy(Proxy proxy);

Remarks

This property contains fields describing the proxy through which the component will attempt to connect.

RefreshToken Property (OAuth Component)

Specifies the refresh token received from or sent to the authorization server.

Syntax


public String getRefreshToken();


public void setRefreshToken(String refreshToken);

Default Value

""

Remarks

When GetAuthorization is called if the authorization server returns a refresh token along with the access token, this property will hold the refresh token. Save this value for later use.

When your access token expires, set this property to the corresponding refresh token. Then call GetAuthorization and the component will use this token to retrieve a new access token. The new authorization string will be returned by the GetAuthorization method. No user interaction is required when refreshing an access token.

ReturnURL Property (OAuth Component)

The URL where the user (browser) returns after authenticating.

Syntax


public String getReturnURL();


public void setReturnURL(String returnURL);

Default Value

""

Remarks

When ClientProfile is set to cfApplication this will be automatically set to the address of the local embedded web server. In that case this property can be inspected to determine the URL where the user will be redirected, but does not need to be set.

When calling GetAuthorizationURL, which is common when ClientProfile is set to cfWebBrowser, set this property to the URL on your server where the user will be redirected after authenticating with the authorization server.

This property corresponds to the redirect_uri query string parameter.

ServerAuthURL Property (OAuth Component)

The URL of the authorization server.

Syntax


public String getServerAuthURL();


public void setServerAuthURL(String serverAuthURL);

Default Value

""

Remarks

Specifies the URL of the authorization server used when GetAuthorization is called. This value is used when constructing the URL to which the user will be redirected to authenticate and grant access.

This should be specified before calling GetAuthorization.

When this is set, it will clear any value specified in AuthorizationURL.

ServerTokenURL Property (OAuth Component)

The URL used to obtain the access token.

Syntax


public String getServerTokenURL();


public void setServerTokenURL(String serverTokenURL);

Default Value

""

Remarks

Specifies the URL where the grant will be exchanged for the access token. This is typically a separate HTTP endpoint on the authorization server.

This must be set before calling GetAuthorization.

SSLAcceptServerCert Property (OAuth Component)

Instructs the component to unconditionally accept the server certificate that matches the supplied certificate.

Syntax


public Certificate getSSLAcceptServerCert();


public void setSSLAcceptServerCert(Certificate SSLAcceptServerCert);

Remarks

If it finds any issues with the certificate presented by the server, the component will normally terminate the connection with an error.

You may override this behavior by supplying a value for SSLAcceptServerCert. If the certificate supplied in SSLAcceptServerCert is the same as the certificate presented by the server, then the server certificate is accepted unconditionally, and the connection will continue normally.

Please note that this functionality is provided only for cases where you otherwise know that you are communicating with the right server. If used improperly, this property may create a security breach. Use it at your own risk.

SSLCert Property (OAuth Component)

The certificate to be used during SSL negotiation.

Syntax


public Certificate getSSLCert();


public void setSSLCert(Certificate SSLCert);

Remarks

The digital certificate that the component will use during SSL negotiation. Set this property to a valid certificate before starting SSL negotiation. To set a certificate, you may set the Encoded field to the encoded certificate. To select a certificate, use the store and subject fields.

SSLProvider Property (OAuth Component)

TBD.

Syntax


public int getSSLProvider();


public void setSSLProvider(int SSLProvider);

Enumerated values:
  public final static int sslpAutomatic = 0;

  public final static int sslpPlatform = 1;

  public final static int sslpInternal = 2;

Default Value

0

Remarks

TBD.

SSLServerCert Property (OAuth Component)

The server certificate for the last established connection.

Syntax


public Certificate getSSLServerCert();


Remarks

SSLServerCert contains the server certificate for the last established connection.

SSLServerCert is reset every time a new connection is attempted.

This property is read-only.

Timeout Property (OAuth Component)

A timeout for the component.

Syntax


public int getTimeout();


public void setTimeout(int timeout);

Default Value

60

Remarks

If the Timeout property is set to 0, all operations will run uninterrupted until successful completion or an error condition is encountered.

If Timeout is set to a positive value, the component will wait for the operation to complete before returning control.

The component will use DoEvents to enter an efficient wait loop during any potential waiting period, making sure that all system events are processed immediately as they arrive. This ensures that the host application does not "freeze" and remains responsive.

If Timeout expires, and the operation is not yet complete, the component throws an exception.

Please note that by default, all timeouts are inactivity timeouts, i.e. the timeout period is extended by Timeout seconds when any amount of data is successfully sent or received.

The default value for the Timeout property is 60 seconds.

TransferredData Property (OAuth Component)

The contents of the last response from the server.

Syntax


public byte[] getTransferredData();


Default Value

""

Remarks

This property contains the contents of the last response from the server.

TransferredDataLimit controls the maximum amount of data accumulated in TransferredData (by default there is no limit).

This property is read-only and not available at design time.

TransferredHeaders Property (OAuth Component)

The full set of headers as received from the server.

Syntax


public String getTransferredHeaders();


Default Value

""

Remarks

This property returns the complete set of raw headers as received from the server.

The Header event shows the individual headers as parsed by the component.

This property is read-only and not available at design time.

WebServerPort Property (OAuth Component)

The local port on which the embedded web server listens.

Syntax


public int getWebServerPort();


public void setWebServerPort(int webServerPort);

Default Value

0

Remarks

This property specifies the port on which the embedded web server listens. Setting this to 0 (default) enables the system to choose a port at random. The chosen port will be returned when this setting is queried after the server has started listening.This is only applicable when using the embedded web server.

WebServerSSLCert Property (OAuth Component)

The certificate with private key to use when SSL is enabled.

Syntax


public Certificate getWebServerSSLCert();


public void setWebServerSSLCert(Certificate webServerSSLCert);

Remarks

This property specifies the certificate with private key to use when the embedded web server is used. This setting is only applicable when WebServerSSLEnabled is set to True.

WebServerSSLEnabled Property (OAuth Component)

Whether the web server requires SSL connections.

Syntax


public boolean isWebServerSSLEnabled();


public void setWebServerSSLEnabled(boolean webServerSSLEnabled);

Default Value

False

Remarks

This setting specifies whether the embedded web server use SSL. If set to True WebServerSSLCert is required and the server will only accept SSL connections. If set to False only plaintext connects are supported.

AddCookie Method (Oauth Component)

Adds a cookie and the corresponding value to the outgoing request headers.

Syntax

public void addCookie(String cookieName, String cookieValue);

Remarks

This property adds a cookie and the corresponding value to the outgoing request headers. Please refer to the Cookies property for more information on cookies and how they are managed.

AddParam Method (Oauth Component)

Adds a name-value pair to the query string parameters of outgoing request.

Syntax

public void addParam(String paramName, String paramValue);

Remarks

This method can be used to add query string parameters to the outgoing request. One common use for this method would be to add the "state" parameter to the request, which can be used when the ClientProfile is cfWebServer to add user defined data. The authorization server will include the "state" parameter in the response and will be available in the post back to your server which will allow you to maintain state in your application.

Config Method (Oauth Component)

Sets or retrieves a configuration setting.

Syntax

public String config(String configurationString);

Remarks

Config is a generic method available in every component. It is used to set and retrieve configuration settings for the component.

These settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the component, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

To set a configuration setting named PROPERTY, you must call Config("PROPERTY=VALUE"), where VALUE is the value of the setting expressed as a string. For boolean values, use the strings "True", "False", "0", "1", "Yes", or "No" (case does not matter).

To read (query) the value of a configuration setting, you must call Config("PROPERTY"). The value will be returned as a string.

DoEvents Method (Oauth Component)

Processes events from the internal message queue.

Syntax

public void doEvents();

Remarks

When DoEvents is called, the component processes any available events. If no events are available, it waits for a preset period of time, and then returns.

GetAuthorization Method (Oauth Component)

Gets the authorization string required to access the protected resource.

Syntax

public String getAuthorization();

Remarks

This method performs several operations automatically depending on the value of ClientProfile. Please see the introduction section for the OAuth component for a detailed overview of the typical scenarios.

After authorization is completed this method will return the authorization string which can be passed directly to the Authorization property of any other component. This can also be passed as the value of the HTTP Authorization header to other implementations that access the protected resource as well.

GetAuthorizationURL Method (Oauth Component)

Builds and returns the URL to which the user should be re-directed for authorization.

Syntax

public String getAuthorizationURL();

Remarks

When this method is called, the component will return the URL used for authorization. The component will not make any connections itself, but instead return the URL to you so that you may re-direct the user to this location. This is useful when ClientProfile is set to cfWebServer. Before calling this method set:

Interrupt Method (Oauth Component)

Interrupt the current method.

Syntax

public void interrupt();

Remarks

If there is no method in progress, Interrupt simply returns, doing nothing.

Reset Method (Oauth Component)

Reset the component.

Syntax

public void reset();

Remarks

This method will reset the component's properties to their default values.

StartWebServer Method (Oauth Component)

Starts the embedded web server.

Syntax

public void startWebServer();

Remarks

Starts the embedded web server. This method can be used to manually start the embedded web server. Under normal circumstances this is not needed as the component will automatically start and stop the web server when GetAuthorization is called. However, you may decide to start the web server manually before calling GetAuthorization. When called this method will also populate ReturnURL with the address of the embedded server.

StopWebServer Method (Oauth Component)

Stops the embedded web server.

Syntax

public void stopWebServer();

Remarks

Stops the embedded web server. Under normal circumstances the web server will be stopped automatically during the authorization process when GetAuthorization is called. If ReUseWebServer is set to true the server will not be automatically stopped, and this method must be called to stop the embedded web server.

Connected Event (Oauth Component)

Fired immediately after a connection completes (or fails).

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void connected(OauthConnectedEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthConnectedEvent {
  public int statusCode;

  public String description;

}

Remarks

If the connection is made normally, StatusCode is 0 and Description is "OK".

If the connection fails, StatusCode has the error code returned by the TCP/IP stack. Description contains a description of this code. The value of StatusCode is equal to the value of the error.

Please refer to the Error Codes section for more information.

ConnectionStatus Event (Oauth Component)

Fired to indicate changes in connection state.

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void connectionStatus(OauthConnectionStatusEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthConnectionStatusEvent {
  public String connectionEvent;

  public int statusCode;

  public String description;

}

Remarks

The ConnectionStatus event is fired when the connection state changes: completion of a firewall or proxy connection, completion of a security handshake, etc.

The ConnectionEvent parameter indicates the type of connection event. Values may include:

Firewall connection complete.
SSL or S/Shell handshake complete (where applicable).
Remote host connection complete.
Remote host disconnected.
SSL or S/Shell connection broken.
Firewall host disconnected.

StatusCode has the error code returned by the TCP/IP stack. Description contains a description of this code. The value of StatusCode is equal to the value of the error.

Disconnected Event (Oauth Component)

Fired when a connection is closed.

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void disconnected(OauthDisconnectedEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthDisconnectedEvent {
  public int statusCode;

  public String description;

}

Remarks

If the connection is broken normally, StatusCode is 0 and Description is "OK".

If the connection is broken for any other reason, StatusCode has the error code returned by the TCP/IP subsystem. Description contains a description of this code. The value of StatusCode is equal to the value of the TCP/IP error.

Please refer to the Error Codes section for more information.

EndTransfer Event (Oauth Component)

Fired when a document finishes transferring.

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void endTransfer(OauthEndTransferEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthEndTransferEvent {
  public int direction;

}

Remarks

The EndTransfer event is fired first when the client finishes sending data to the server (in a 'POST' or 'PUT' request) and then when the document text finishes transferring from the server to the local host.

The Direction parameter shows whether the client (0) or the server (1) is sending the data.

Error Event (Oauth Component)

Information about errors during data delivery.

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void error(OauthErrorEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthErrorEvent {
  public int errorCode;

  public String description;

}

Remarks

The Error event is fired in case of exceptional conditions during message processing. Normally the component throws an exception.

ErrorCode contains an error code and Description contains a textual description of the error. For a list of valid error codes and their descriptions, please refer to the Error Codes section.

Header Event (Oauth Component)

Fired every time a header line comes in.

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void header(OauthHeaderEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthHeaderEvent {
  public String field;

  public String value;

}

Remarks

The Field parameter contains the name of the HTTP header (same case as it is delivered). The Value parameter contains the header contents.

If the header line being retrieved is a continuation header line, then the Field parameter contains "" (empty string).

LaunchBrowser Event (Oauth Component)

Fires before launching a browser with the authorization URL.

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void launchBrowser(OauthLaunchBrowserEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthLaunchBrowserEvent {
  public String URL;

  public String command;

}

Remarks

When the ClientProfile property is set to cfApplication and GetAuthorization is called the component will fire this event with the Command which will be executed by the component. The URL parameter will be the authorization URL which the user will be directed to authenticate.

Within this event you may override the current value of either Command or URL and provide your own value. If Command is set to empty string the component will not attempt to launch the browser and instead you will be responsible for directing the user to the authorization URL specified by AuthorizationURL.

Log Event (Oauth Component)

Fires once for each log message.

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void log(OauthLogEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthLogEvent {
  public int logLevel;

  public String message;

  public String logType;

}

Remarks

This event fires once for each log message generated by the component. The verbosity is controlled by the LogLevel setting.

LogLevel indicates the level of message. Possible values are:

0 (None) No events are logged.
1 (Info - default) Informational events are logged.
2 (Verbose) Detailed data is logged.
3 (Debug) Debug data is logged.

The value 1 (Info) logs basic information including the URL, HTTP version, and status details.

The value 2 (Verbose) logs additional information about the request and response.

The value 3 (Debug) logs the headers and body for both the request and response, as well as additional debug information (if any).

Message is the log entry.

LogType identifies the type of log entry. Possible values are:

  • "Info"
  • "RequestHeaders"
  • "ResponseHeaders"
  • "RequestBody"
  • "ResponseBody"
  • "ProxyRequest"
  • "ProxyResponse"
  • "FirewallRequest"
  • "FirewallResponse"

Redirect Event (Oauth Component)

Fired when a redirection is received from the server.

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void redirect(OauthRedirectEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthRedirectEvent {
  public String location;

  public boolean accept;

}

Remarks

This event is where the client can decide whether to continue with the redirection process or not. The Accept parameter is always true by default, but if you do not want to follow the redirection, Accept may be set to false, in which case the component throws an exception. Location is the location to which the client is being redirected. Further control over redirection is provided in the FollowRedirects property.

ReturnURL Event (Oauth Component)

Fires when the user is redirected to the embedded web server.

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void returnURL(OauthReturnURLEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthReturnURLEvent {
  public String URLPath;

  public String queryString;

  public String responseHeaders;

  public String responseBody;

}

Remarks

When ClientProfile is set to cfApplication and the embedded web server is used (default), this event will fire when the user is redirected from authorization server back to the local embedded web server. The event provides an opportunity to set the ResponseHeaders and ResponseBody and provide a custom response that the user will see in their browser.

URLPath and QueryString are informational parameters that show the values sent by the authorization server.

SetCookie Event (Oauth Component)

Fired for every cookie set by the server.

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void setCookie(OauthSetCookieEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthSetCookieEvent {
  public String name;

  public String value;

  public String expires;

  public String domain;

  public String path;

  public boolean secure;

}

Remarks

The SetCookie event is fired for every "Set-Cookie:" header received from the HTTP server.

The Name parameter contains the name of the cookie, with the corresponding value supplied in the Value parameter.

The Expires parameter contains an expiration time for the cookie (if provided by the server). The time format used is "Weekday, DD-Mon-YY HH:MM:SS GMT". If the server does not provide an expiration time, the Expires parameter will be an empty string. In this case, the convention is to drop the cookie at the end of the session.

The Domain parameter contains a domain name to limit the cookie to (if provided by the server). If the server does not provide a domain name, the Domain parameter will be an empty string. The convention in this case is to use the server specified in the URL (URLServer) as the cookie domain.

The Path parameter contains a path name to limit the cookie to (if provided by the server). If the server does not provide a cookie path, the Path parameter will be an empty string. The convention in this case is to use the path specified in the URL (URLPath) as the cookie path.

The Secure parameter specifies whether the cookie is secure. If the value of this parameter is True, the cookie value must be submitted through a secure (HTTPS) connection only.

SSLServerAuthentication Event (Oauth Component)

Fired after the server presents its certificate to the client.

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void SSLServerAuthentication(OauthSSLServerAuthenticationEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthSSLServerAuthenticationEvent {
  public byte[] certEncoded;

  public String certSubject;

  public String certIssuer;

  public String status;

  public boolean accept;

}

Remarks

This event is where the client can decide whether to continue with the connection process or not. The Accept parameter is a recommendation on whether to continue or close the connection. This is just a suggestion: application software must use its own logic to determine whether to continue or not.

When Accept is False, Status shows why the verification failed (otherwise, Status contains the string "OK"). If it is decided to continue, you can override and accept the certificate by setting the Accept parameter to True.

SSLStatus Event (Oauth Component)

Shows the progress of the secure connection.

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void SSLStatus(OauthSSLStatusEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthSSLStatusEvent {
  public String message;

}

Remarks

The event is fired for informational and logging purposes only. Used to track the progress of the connection.

StartTransfer Event (Oauth Component)

Fired when a document starts transferring (after the headers).

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void startTransfer(OauthStartTransferEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthStartTransferEvent {
  public int direction;

}

Remarks

The StartTransfer event is fired first when the client starts sending data to the server (in a 'POST' or 'PUT' request) and then when the document text starts transferring from the server to the local host.

The Direction parameter shows whether the client (0) or the server (1) is sending the data.

Status Event (Oauth Component)

Fired when the HTTP status line is received from the server.

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void status(OauthStatusEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthStatusEvent {
  public String HTTPVersion;

  public int statusCode;

  public String description;

}

Remarks

HTTPVersion is a string containing the HTTP version string as returned from the server (e.g. "1.1").

StatusCode contains the HTTP status code (e.g. 200), and Description the associated message returned by the server (e.g. "OK").

Transfer Event (Oauth Component)

Fired while a document transfers (delivers document).

Syntax

public class DefaultOauthEventListener implements OauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void transfer(OauthTransferEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class OauthTransferEvent {
  public int direction;

  public long bytesTransferred;

  public int percentDone;

  public byte[] text;

}

Remarks

The Text parameter contains the portion of the document text being received. It is empty if data is being posted to the server.

The BytesTransferred parameter contains the number of bytes transferred in this Direction since the beginning of the document text (excluding HTTP response headers).

The Direction parameter shows whether the client (0) or the server (1) is sending the data.

The PercentDone parameter shows the progress of the transfer in the corresponding direction. If PercentDone can not be calculated the value will be -1.

Note that events are not re-entrant. Performing time consuming operations within this event will prevent it from firing again in a timely manner and may impact overall performance.

Certificate Type

This is the digital certificate being used.

Remarks

This type describes the current digital certificate. The certificate may be a public or private key. The fields are used to identify or select certificates.

Remarks

An HTTP cookie can store the cookies that are to be sent to the server. It may also store the cookies set by the server.

Cookies that are to be sent to the server must have the Name and Value fields supplied prior to submitting the URL. However, when the SetCookie event is fired, all of the fields of an HTTPCookie are filled out accordingly.

Fields

Domain
String

The domain of a received cookie. This field contains a domain name to limit the cookie to (if provided by the server). If the server does not provide a domain name, this field will contain an empty string. The convention in this case is to use the server name specified by URLServer as the cookie domain.

Expiration

Proxy Type

The proxy the component will connect to.

Remarks

When connecting through a proxy, this type is used to specify different properties of the proxy such as the Server and the AuthScheme.

Fields

AuthScheme
int

This field is used to tell the component which type of authorization to perform when connecting to the proxy. This is only used when the User and Password fields are set.

AuthScheme should be set to authNone (3) when no authentication is expected.

By default, AuthScheme is authBasic (0), and if the User and Password fields are set, the component will attempt basic authentication.

If AuthScheme is set to authDigest (1), digest authentication will be attempted instead.

If AuthScheme is set to authProprietary (2), then the authorization token will not be generated by the component. Look at the configuration file for the component being used to find more information about manually setting this token.

If AuthScheme is set to authNtlm (4), NTLM authentication will be used.

For security reasons, setting this field will clear the values of User and Password.

AutoDetect
boolean

This field tells the component whether or not to automatically detect and use proxy system settings, if available. The default value is false.

Note: This setting is only applicable in Windows.

Password
String

This field contains a password if authentication is to be used for the proxy.

If AuthScheme is set to Basic Authentication, the User and Password are Base64 encoded and the proxy authentication token will be generated in the form "Basic [encoded-user-password]".

If AuthScheme is set to Digest Authentication, the User and Password fields are used to respond to the Digest Authentication challenge from the server.

If AuthScheme is set to NTLM Authentication, the User and Password fields are used to authenticate through NTLM negotiation.

Port
int

This field contains the TCP port for the proxy Server (default 80). See the description of the Server field for details.

Server
String

If a proxy Server is given, then the HTTP request is sent to the proxy instead of the server otherwise specified.

If the Server field is set to a Domain Name, a DNS request is initiated and upon successful termination of the request, the Server field is set to the corresponding address. If the search is not successful, an error is returned.

SSL
int

This field determines when to use SSL for the connection to the proxy. The applicable values are the following:

psAutomatic (0)Default setting. If the URL is an "https" URL, the component will use the psTunnel option. If the URL is a "http" URL, the component will use the psNever option.
psAlways (1)The connection is always SSL-enabled.
psNever (2)The connection is not SSL-enabled.
psTunnel (3)The connection is through a tunneling (HTTP) proxy.

User
String

This field contains a user name, if authentication is to be used for the proxy.

If AuthScheme is set to Basic Authentication, the User and Password are Base64 encoded and the proxy authentication token will be generated in the form "Basic [encoded-user-password]".

If AuthScheme is set to Digest Authentication, the User and Password fields are used to respond to the Digest Authentication challenge from the server.

If AuthScheme is set to NTLM Authentication, the User and Password fields are used to authenticate through NTLM negotiation.

Constructors

public Proxy();



public Proxy(String server, int port);



public Proxy(String server, int port, String user, String password);



Configuration Settings (Oauth Component)

The component accepts one or more of the following configuration settings. Configuration settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the component, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

OAuth Configuration Settings

AccessTokenExp:   The lifetime of the access token.

This setting holds the lifetime of the access token in seconds. For instance the value 3600 indicates that the token will expire in one hour from the time it was generated.

AuthorizationTokenType:   The type of access token returned.

The applicable values include the following:

Bearer (default)When the access token returned by the server is a Bearer type, the authorization string returned by GetAuthorization will be in the format "Bearer access_token". This can be supplied as the value of the HTTP Authorization header.

AuthorizationURL:   Specifies the URL used for authorization.

Holds the URL that the user should be directed to in order to authenticate. If this value is specified the component will use this value instead of automatically calculating the value when GetAuthorization is called.

BrowserResponseTimeout:   Specifies the amount of time to wait for a response from the browser.

This setting specifies the amount of time (in seconds) the component will wait for a response from the browser in the LaunchBrowser event. The default value is 0, meaning that the component will wait indefinitely.

CodeChallengeMethod:   The code challenge method to use (if any).

This setting controls the code challenge method used (if any). If specified, Proof Key for Code Exchange (PKCE) defined by RFC 7636 will be used. The value here controls the code challenge method. Possible values are:

  • 0 (None - default)
  • 1 (Plain)
  • 2 (S256/SHA256)
DeviceGrantType:   The grant type to be used when the ClientProfile is set to cfDevice.

Used to specify a different grant type to use for device flow. By default this is set to "http://oauth.net/grant_type/device/1.0". Another commonly used grant type is "urn:ietf:params:oauth:grant-type:device_code".

DeviceUserCode:   The device's user code when the ClientProfile is set to cfDevice.

When ClientProfile is set to cfDevice and GetAuthorizationURL is called the component will request a device user code from the server specified by ServerAuthURL. This setting will be populated with the device user code returned by the server. Provide this value along with the URL returned by GetAuthorizationURL to the user.

FormVarCount:   Specifies the number of additional form variables to include in the request.

This setting may be used to specify additional form variables made in the request to exchange AuthorizationCode for an access token. This is useful in cases where the OAuth server requires additional fields. This is used in conjunction with FormVarName[i] and FormVarValue[i]. For instance: component.Config("FormVarCount=2"); component.Config("FormVarName[0]=myvar"); component.Config("FormVarValue[0]=myvalue"); component.Config("FormVarName[1]=testname"); component.Config("FormVarValue[1]=testvalue"); The value will be URL encoded by the component

FormVarName[i]:   Specifies the form variable name at the specified index.

This setting specifies the form variable name at the index specified. See FormVarCount for details.

FormVarValue[i]:   Specifies the form variable value at the specified index.

This setting specifies the form variable value at the index specified. See FormVarCount for details.

IncludeEmptyRedirectURI:   Whether an empty redirect_uri parameter is included in requests.

This setting specifies whether redirect_uri is included in the request made by GetAuthorization if it is empty. In most cases redirect_uri will contain a value and will be sent, however if ClientProfile is set to Mobile or Device this will be empty.

If set to True (default) the redirect_uri will be sent in all cases. If set to False the redirect_uri will only be sent if it has a value.

JWTAudience:   The JWT audience when the ClientProfile is set to cfJWT.

This setting specifies the audience that the JWT is intended for. This is required when ClientProfile is set to cfJWT. When using Google service accounts this value must be "https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v3/token".

JWTCertStore:   The name of the certificate store for the JWT signing certificate.

The name of the certificate store for the JWT signing certificate.

The JWTCertStoreType field specifies the type of the certificate store specified by JWTCertStore. If the store is password protected, specify the password in JWTCertStorePassword.

JWTCertStore is used in conjunction with the JWTCertSubject field in order to specify JWT signing certificate.

Designations of certificate stores are platform-dependent.

The following are designations of the most common User and Machine certificate stores in Windows:

MYA certificate store holding personal certificates with their associated private keys.
CACertifying authority certificates.
ROOTRoot certificates.

In Java, the certificate store normally is a file containing certificates and optional private keys.

When the certificate store type is PFXFile, this property must be set to the name of the file. When the type is PFXBlob, the property must be set to the binary contents of a PFX file (i.e. PKCS12 certificate store).

Note: This is required when ClientProfile is set to cfJWT.

JWTCertStorePassword:   The JWT signing certificate password.

If the certificate store is of a type that requires a password, this property is used to specify that password in order to open the certificate store.

Note: This is only applicable when ClientProfile is set to cfJWT.

JWTCertStoreType:   The type of certificate store.

This specifies the type of certificate store. Possible values are:

0 User - default For Windows, this specifies that the certificate store is a certificate store owned by the current user. Note: this store type is not available in Java.
1 Machine - For Windows, this specifies that the certificate store is a machine store. Note: this store type is not available in Java.
2 PFXFile - The certificate store is the name of a PFX (PKCS12) file containing certificates.
3 PFXBlob - The certificate store is a string (binary or base64-encoded) representing a certificate store in PFX (PKCS12) format.
4 JKSFile - The certificate store is the name of a Java Key Store (JKS) file containing certificates. Note: this store type is only available in Java.
5 JKSBlob - The certificate store is a string (binary or base64-encoded) representing a certificate store in Java Key Store (JKS) format. Note: this store type is only available in Java.
6 PEMKeyFile - The certificate store is the name of a PEM-encoded file that contains a private key and an optional certificate.
7 PEMKeyBlob - The certificate store is a string (binary or base64-encoded) that contains a private key and an optional certificate.
14 PPKFile - The certificate store is the name of a file that contains a PPK (PuTTY Private Key).
15 PPKBlob - The certificate store is a string (binary) that contains a PPK (PuTTY Private Key).
16 XMLFile - The certificate store is the name of a file that contains a certificate in XML format.
17 XMLBlob - The certificate store is a string that contains a certificate in XML format.

Note: This is required when ClientProfile is set to cfJWT.

JWTCertSubject:   The JWT signing certificate subject.

The subject of the JWT signing certificate.

The special value "*" picks a random certificate in the certificate store.

The certificate subject is a comma separated list of distinguished name fields and values. For instance "CN=www.server.com, OU=test, C=US, E=support@nsoftware.com". Common fields and their meanings are displayed below.

FieldMeaning
CNCommon Name. This is commonly a host name like www.server.com.
OOrganization
OUOrganizational Unit
LLocality
SState
CCountry
EEmail Address

If a field value contains a comma it must be quoted.

Note: This is required when ClientProfile is set to cfJWT.

JWTIssuer:   The JWT issuer when the ClientProfile is set to cfJWT.

This setting specifies the issuer of the JWT. This is required when ClientProfile is set to cfJWT. When using Google service accounts this value is the email address of the service account.

JWTJSONKey:   The file path of the JWT JSON Key, or a string containing its content.

This setting specifies the file path of the JWT JSON Key, or a string containing its content, provided for the service account. If this setting is specified, the component will attempt to parse the values for JWTCertStore, JWTIssuer from the JSON file, as well as initializing the values for JWTCertStoreType, JWTCertStorePassword, and JWTCertSubject.

JWTServiceProvider:   The service provider to which authentication is being performed.

This setting specifies the service provider that is being authenticated to. Possible values are:

  • 0 (Google - Default)
  • 1 (Microsoft)
Note: This is required when ClientProfile is set to cfJWT.
JWTSignatureAlgorithm:   The signature algorithm used to sign the JWT.

This setting specifies the signature algorithm used to sign the JWT. Possible values are:

  • RSA-SHA256
Note: This is only applicable when ClientProfile is set to cfJWT.
JWTSubject:   The subject field in the JWT.

This setting optionally specifies the subject field in the JWT. For Google service accounts this is the email address of the user for which the application is requesting delegated access. The meaning of this value varies from service to service. Please consult the documentation for the service to which you're authenticating to determine if the "sub" field is applicable.

JWTValidityTime:   The amount of time in seconds for which the assertion in the JWT is valid.

The amount of time in seconds for which the assertion in the JWT is valid. The default value is 3600 (one hour).

Note: This is only applicable when ClientProfile is set to cfJWT.

Microsoft365AdminConsentError:   The error message returned when the admin denies consent to the scopes.

When using the Microsoft365AdminConsent profile, this configuration will hold the error message in the event that the admin does not consent to the scopes of the application. This configuration is read-only.

Microsoft365AdminConsentErrorDesc:   The error description returned when the admin denies consent to the scopes.

When using the Microsoft365AdminConsent profile, this configuration will hold the description of the error message in the event that the admin does not consent to the scopes of the application. This configuration is read-only.

Microsoft365AdminConsentTenant:   The tenant ID returned after the admin consents to the scopes.

When using the Microsoft365AdminConsent profile, this configuration will hold the tenant ID that is returned after the admin consents to the scopes. This configuration is read-only.

Office365ServiceAPIVersion:   The API version of the Office 365 service being discovered.

This setting specifies the API version of the Office 365 service for which a search is initiated. See Office365ServiceEndpoint for details.

Office365ServiceCapability:   The API capability of the Office 365 service being discovered.

This setting specifies the capability of the Office 365 service for which a search is initiated. See Office365ServiceEndpoint for details.

Office365ServiceEndpoint:   The Office 365 endpoint for the service that matches the criteria specified.

When obtaining authorization to access an Office 365 resource it may be necessary to discover a list of services that match a certain criteria and then select a specific resource from that list. For instance, OneDrive for Business requires discovery of the Office 365 service which can be used with the OneDrive API.

When GetAuthorization is called, if Office365ServiceAPIVersion and Office365ServiceCapability are specified the component will attempt to discover the Office 365 services for which the user has access sand find a service which matches the requirements specified in Office365ServiceAPIVersion and Office365ServiceCapability. If a service is found the component will then obtain authorization to access that service. If authorization is successful Office365ServiceEndpoint will hold the service endpoint URL to which requests should be made.

Example of OneDrive for Business: oauth.Config("Office365ServiceCapability=MyFiles"); oauth.Config("Office365ServiceAPIVersion=v2.0"); string authString = oauth.GetAuthorization(); string endpointURL = oauth.Config("Office365ServiceEndpoint");

PollingInterval:   The interval in seconds between polling requests when the device client type is used.

When ClientProfile is set to cfDevice, this determines the interval (in seconds) between polling requests made to ServerTokenURL. The default value is 5.

ResponseCompanyImage:   A URL or full path to a company logo.

This setting specifies a URL or full path to a company logo. If set the image will be displayed and will be a hyperlink to ResponseCompanyURL.

ResponseCompanyURL:   A URL to the company website or similar resource.

ResponseSuccessHeading:   Short header text indicating success.

This setting specifies short header text indicating success. The default value is Authorization Successful.

ResponseSuccessMessage:   A description for a successful authorization.

This setting specifies a description for a successful authorization. The default value is Access to your account was successfully authorized. You may now close this window.

ReUseWebServer:   Determines if the same server instance is used between requests.

If set to true (default), the same embedded web server instance will be used for multiple requests. If set to false the embedded web server will be created and destroyed on each call to GetAuthorization

TokenInfoFieldCount:   The number of fields in the tokeninfo service response.

This setting returns the number of fields present in the tokeninfo service response. This is populated after calling ValidateToken.

TokenInfoFieldName[i]:   The name of the tokeninfo service response field.

This setting returns the name of the tokeninfo service response field specified by index i. Valid values are from 0 to TokenInfoFieldCount - 1.

TokenInfoFieldValue[i]:   The value of the tokeninfo service response field.

This setting returns the value of the tokeninfo service response field specified by index i. Valid values are from 0 to TokenInfoFieldCount - 1.

TokenInfoURL:   The URL of the tokeninfo service.

This setting specifies the URL of the tokeninfo service to which a request is made when ValidateToken is called. The default value is "https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v1/tokeninfo".

ValidateToken:   Validates the specified access token with a tokeninfo service.

This setting will post the AccessToken to the tokeninfo service specified by TokenInfoURL. This allows a token to be queried for validity and other information before use. When this setting is queried the component will immediately make a request to the server. TokenInfoFieldCount, TokenInfoFieldName[i], and TokenInfoFieldValue[i] may be used to iterate over the fields in the response.

WebServerFailedResponse:   The custom response that will be displayed to the user if authentication failed.

When GetAuthorization is called the user will be redirected to the embedded web server upon completing authentication with the authorization server. If authentication failed, the HTML specified here will be sent to the user's browser.

WebServerHost:   The hostname used by the embedded web server displayed in the ReturnURL.

This setting specifies the hostname used by the embedded web server when ClientProfile is set to cfApplication. This specifies the interface on which the embedded web server listens, and also the value displayed in the ReturnURL. This should be set to the hostname only, not the full URL.

The default value is "localhost".

WebServerResponse:   The custom response that will be displayed to the user.

When GetAuthorization is called the user will be redirected to the embedded web server upon completing authentication with the authorization server. This setting allows you to specify the HTML that will be sent to the user's browser.

HTTP Configuration Settings

AcceptEncoding:   Used to tell the server which types of content encodings the client supports.

When AllowHTTPCompression is true, the component adds an "Accept-Encoding: " header to the request being sent to the server. By default, this header's value is "gzip, deflate". This config allows you to change the value of the "Accept-Encoding" header. NOTE: The component only supports gzip and deflate decompression algorithms.

AllowHTTPCompression:   This property enables HTTP compression for receiving data.

This setting enables HTTP compression for receiving data. When set to True (default), the component will accept compressed data. It will then uncompress the data it has received. The component will handle data compressed by both GZIP and Deflate compression algorithms.

When true, the component adds an "Accept-Encoding" header to the outgoing request. The value for this header can be controlled by the AcceptEncoding config. The default value for this header is "gzip, deflate".

The default value is True.

AllowHTTPFallback:   Whether HTTP/2 connections are permitted to fallback to HTTP/1.1.

This setting controls whether HTTP/2 connections are permitted to fallback to HTTP/1.1 when the server does not support HTTP/2. This setting is only applicable when HTTPVersion is set to "2.0".

If set to True (default) the component will automatically use HTTP/1.1 if the server does not support HTTP/2. If set to False the component throws an exception if the server does not support HTTP/2.

The default value is True.

AllowNTLMFallback:   Whether to allow fallback from Negotiate to NTLM when authenticating.

This setting only applies when AuthScheme is set to Negotiate. If set to True the component will automatically use NTLM if the server does not support Negotiate authentication. Note that the server must indicate it supports NTLM authentication via the WWW-Authenticate header for the fallback from Negotiate to NTLM to take place. The default value is False.

Append:   Whether to append data to LocalFile.

This setting determines whether data is appended when writing to LocalFile. When set to True downloaded data will be appended to LocalFile. This may be used in conjunction with Range to resume a failed download. This is only applicable when LocalFile is set. The default value is False.

Authorization:   The Authorization string to be sent to the server.

If the Authorization property contains a non-empty string, an Authorization HTTP request header is added to the request. This header conveys Authorization information to the server.

This property is provided so that the HTTP component can be extended with other security schemes in addition to the authorization schemes already implemented by the component.

The AuthScheme property defines the authentication scheme used. In the case of HTTP Basic Authentication (default), every time User and Password are set, they are Base64 encoded, and the result is put in the Authorization property in the form "Basic [encoded-user-password]".

BytesTransferred:   Contains the number of bytes transferred in the response data.

Returns the raw number of bytes from the HTTP response data, prior to the component processing the data, whether it is chunked and/or compressed. This returns the same value as the Transfer event, by BytesTransferred.

ChunkSize:   Specifies the chunk size in bytes when using chunked encoding.

This is only applicable when UseChunkedEncoding is true. This setting specifies the chunk size in bytes to be used when posting data. The default value is 16384.

CompressHTTPRequest:   Set to true to compress the body of a PUT or POST request.

If set to true, the body of a PUT or POST request will be compressed into gzip format before sending the request. The "Content-encoding" header is also added to the outgoing request.

The default value is False.

EncodeURL:   If set to true the URL will be encoded by the component.

If set to True the URL passed to the component will be URL encoded. The default value is False.

FollowRedirects:   Determines what happens when the server issues a redirect.

This option determines what happens when the server issues a redirect. Normally, the component returns an error if the server responds with an "Object Moved" message. If this property is set to 1 (always), the new URL for the object is retrieved automatically every time.

If this property is set to 2 (Same Scheme), the new URL is retrieved automatically only if the URL Scheme is the same, otherwise the component throws an exception.

Note that following the HTTP specification, unless this option is set to 1 (Always), automatic redirects will be performed only for 'GET' or 'HEAD' requests. Other methods could potentially change the conditions of the initial request and create security vulnerabilities.

Furthermore, if either the new URL server and port are different than the existing one, User and Password are also reset to empty, unless this property is set to 1 (Always), in which case the same credentials are used to connect to the new server.

A Redirect event is fired for every URL the product is redirected to. In the case of automatic redirections, the Redirect event is a good place to set properties related to the new connection (e.g. new authentication parameters).

The default value is 0 (Never). In this case, redirects are never followed, and the component throws an exception instead.

Valid options are:

  • 0 - Never
  • 1 - Always
  • 2 - Same Scheme

GetOn302Redirect:   If set to true the component will perform a GET on the new location.

The default value is false. If set to true the component will perform a GET on the new location. Otherwise it will use the same HTTP method again.

HTTP2HeadersWithoutIndexing:   HTTP2 headers that should not update the dynamic header table with incremental indexing.

HTTP/2 servers maintain a dynamic table of headers and values seen over the course of a connection. Typically these headers are inserted into the table via incremental indexing (also known as HPACK, defined in RFC 7541). To tell the component not to use incremental indexing for certain headers, and thus not update the dynamic table, set this configuration option to a comma-delimited list of the header names.

HTTPVersion:   The version of HTTP used by the component.

This property specifies the HTTP version used by the component. Possible values are:

  • "1.0"
  • "1.1" (default)
  • "2.0"

When using HTTP/2 ("2.0") additional restrictions apply. Please see notes below for details.

HTTP/2 Notes

When using HTTP/2 only secure (TLS/SSL) connections are currently supported. Attempting to use a plaintext URL with HTTP/2 will result in an error.

If the server does not support HTTP/2 the component will automatically use HTTP/1.1 instead. This is done in order to provide compatibility without the need for any additional settings. To see which version was used check NegotiatedHTTPVersion after calling a method. The AllowHTTPFallback setting controls whether this behavior is allowed (default) or disallowed.

HTTP/2 is supported on all platforms. The component will use the internal security implementation in all cases when connecting.

IfModifiedSince:   A date determining the maximum age of the desired document.

If this setting contains a non-empty string, an If-Modified-Since HTTP header is added to the request. The value of this header is used to make the HTTP request conditional: if the requested documented has not been modified since the time specified in the field, a copy of the document will not be returned from the server; instead, a 304 (not modified) response will be returned by the server and the component throws an exception

The format of the date value for IfModifiedSince is detailed in the HTTP specs. An example is: Sat, 29 Oct 2017 19:43:31 GMT.

KeepAlive:   Determines whether the HTTP connection is closed after completion of the request.

If true, the component will not send the 'Connection: Close' header. The absence of the Connection header indicates to the server that HTTP persistent connections should be used if supported. Note that not all server support persistent connections. You may also explicitly add the Keep-Alive header to the request headers by setting OtherHeaders to 'Connection: Keep-Alive'. If false, the connection will be closed immediately after the server response is received.

The default value for KeepAlive is false.

KerberosSPN:   The Service Principal Name for the Kerberos Domain Controller.

If the Service Principal Name on the Kerberos Domain Controller is not the same as the URL that you are authenticating to, the Service Principal Name should be set here.

LogLevel:   The level of detail that is logged.

This setting controls the level of detail that is logged through the Log event. Possible values are:

0 (None) No events are logged.
1 (Info - default) Informational events are logged.
2 (Verbose) Detailed data is logged.
3 (Debug) Debug data is logged.

The value 1 (Info) logs basic information including the URL, HTTP version, and status details.

The value 2 (Verbose) logs additional information about the request and response.

The value 3 (Debug) logs the headers and body for both the request and response, as well as additional debug information (if any).

MaxHeaders:   Instructs component to save the amount of headers specified that are returned by the server after a Header event has been fired.

This config should be set when the TransferredHeaders collection is to be populated when a Header event has been fired. This value represents the number of headers that are to be saved in the collection.

To save all items to the collection, set this config to -1. If no items are wanted, set this to 0, which will not save any to the collection. The default for this config is -1, so all items will be included in the collection.

MaxHTTPCookies:   Instructs component to save the amount of cookies specified that are returned by the server when a SetCookie event is fired.

This config should be set when populating the Cookies collection as a result of an HTTP request. This value represents the number of cookies that are to be saved in the collection.

To save all items to the collection, set this config to -1. If no items are wanted, set this to 0, which will not save any to the collection. The default for this config is -1, so all items will be included in the collection.

MaxRedirectAttempts:   Limits the number of redirects that are followed in a request.

When FollowRedirects is set to any value besides frNever the component will follow redirects until this maximum number of redirect attempts are made. The default value is 20.

NegotiatedHTTPVersion:   The negotiated HTTP version.

This setting may be queried after the request is complete to indicate the HTTP version used. When HTTPVersion is set to "2.0" if the server does not support "2.0" the component will fallback to using "1.1" automatically. This setting will indicate which was used.

OtherHeaders:   Other headers as determined by the user (optional).

This configuration option can be set to a string of headers to be appended to the HTTP request headers.

The headers must be of the format "header: value" as described in the HTTP specifications. Header lines should be separated by CRLF ("\r\n") .

Use this configuration option with caution. If this configuration option contains invalid headers, HTTP requests may fail.

This configuration option is useful for extending the functionality of the component beyond what is provided.

ProxyAuthorization:   The authorization string to be sent to the proxy server.

Similar to the Authorization config, but for proxy authorization. If this config contains a non-empty string, a Proxy-Authorization HTTP request header is added to the request. This header conveys proxy authorization information to the server. If User and Password are specified, this value is calculated using the algorithm specified by AuthScheme.

ProxyAuthScheme:   The authorization scheme to be used for the proxy.

This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyPassword:   A password if authentication is to be used for the proxy.

This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyPort:   Port for the proxy server (default 80).

This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyServer:   Name or IP address of a proxy server (optional).

This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyUser:   A user name if authentication is to be used for the proxy.

This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

SentHeaders:   The full set of headers as sent by the client.

This configuration setting returns the complete set of raw headers as sent by the client.

StatusLine:   The first line of the last response from the server.

This setting contains the first line of the last response from the server. The format of the line will be [HTTP version] [Result Code] [Description].

TransferredData:   The contents of the last response from the server.

This setting contains the contents of the last response from the server.

TransferredDataLimit:   The maximum number of incoming bytes to be stored by the component.

If TransferredDataLimit is set to 0 (default), no limits are imposed. Otherwise this reflects the maximum number of incoming bytes that can be stored by the component.

TransferredHeaders:   The full set of headers as received from the server.

This configuration setting returns the complete set of raw headers as received from the server.

TransferredRequest:   The full request as sent by the client.

This configuration setting returns the full request as sent by the client. For performance reasons, the request is not normally saved. Set this config to ON before making a request to enable it. Examples are below.

.NET Http http = new Http(); http.Config("TransferredRequest=on"); http.PostData = "body"; http.Post("http://someserver.com"); Console.WriteLine(http.Config("TransferredRequest")); C++ HTTP http; http.Config("TransferredRequest=on"); http.SetPostData("body", 5); http.Post("http://someserver.com"); printf("%s\r\n", http.Config("TransferredRequest"));

UseChunkedEncoding:   Enables or Disables HTTP chunked encoding for transfers.

If UseChunkedEncoding is set to true, the component will use HTTP chunked encoding when posting if possible. HTTP chunked encoding allows large files to be sent in chunks instead of all at once. If set to false, the component will not use HTTP chunked encoding. The default value is false.

Note: Some servers (such as the ASP.NET Development Server) may not support chunked encoding.

UseIDNs:   Whether to encode hostnames to internationalized domain names.

This setting specifies whether hostnames containing non-ASCII characters are encoded to internationalized domain names. When set to True if a hostname contains non-ASCII characters it is encoded using Punycode to an IDN.

The default value is False and the hostname will always be used exactly as specified.

UsePlatformDeflate:   Whether to use the platform implementation to decompress compressed responses.

This setting specifies whether the platform deflate algorithm implementation is used to decompress responses that use compression. If set to True (default) the platform implementation is used. If set to False an internal implementation is used.

UsePlatformHTTPClient:   Whether or not to use the platform HTTP client.

If True, the component will use the default HTTP client for the platform (URLConnection in Java, WebRequest in .NET, or CFHTTPMessage in Mac/iOS) instead of the internal HTTP implementation. This is important for environments where direct access to sockets is limited or not allowed (as in the Google AppEngine for instance).

UserAgent:   Information about the user agent (browser).

This is the value supplied in the HTTP User-Agent header. The default setting is "IPWorks HTTP Component - www.nsoftware.com".

Override the default with the name and version of your software.

IPPort Configuration Settings

CloseStreamAfterTransfer:   If true, the component will close the upload or download stream after the transfer.

This setting determines whether the input or output stream is closed after the transfer completes. When set to True (default), all streams will be closed after a transfer is completed. In order to keep streams open after the transfer of data, set this to False. the default value is True.

ConnectionTimeout:   Sets a separate timeout value for establishing a connection.

When set, this configuration setting allows you to specify a different timeout value for establishing a connection. Otherwise, the component will use Timeout for establishing a connection and transmitting/receiving data.

FirewallAutoDetect:   Tells the component whether or not to automatically detect and use firewall system settings, if available.

This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallHost:   Name or IP address of firewall (optional).

If a FirewallHost is given, requested connections will be authenticated through the specified firewall when connecting.

If the FirewallHost setting is set to a Domain Name, a DNS request is initiated. Upon successful termination of the request, the FirewallHost setting is set to the corresponding address. If the search is not successful, an error is returned.

NOTE: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallListener:   If true, the component binds to a SOCKS firewall as a server (IPPort only).

This entry is for IPPort only and does not work for other components that descend from IPPort.

If this entry is set, the component acts as a server. RemoteHost and RemotePort are used to tell the SOCKS firewall in which address and port to listen to. The firewall rules may ignore RemoteHost, and it is recommended that RemoteHost be set to empty string in this case.

RemotePort is the port in which the firewall will listen to. If set to 0, the firewall will select a random port. The binding (address and port) is provided through the ConnectionStatus event.

The connection to the firewall is made by calling the Connect method.

FirewallPassword:   Password to be used if authentication is to be used when connecting through the firewall.

If FirewallHost is specified, the FirewallUser and FirewallPassword settings are used to connect and authenticate to the given firewall. If the authentication fails, the component throws an exception.

NOTE: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallPort:   The TCP port for the FirewallHost;.

Note that the FirewallPort is set automatically when FirewallType is set to a valid value.

NOTE: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallType:   Determines the type of firewall to connect through.

The appropriate values are as follows:

0No firewall (default setting).
1Connect through a tunneling proxy. FirewallPort is set to 80.
2Connect through a SOCKS4 Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.
3Connect through a SOCKS5 Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.
10Connect through a SOCKS4A Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.

NOTE: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallUser:   A user name if authentication is to be used connecting through a firewall.

If the FirewallHost is specified, the FirewallUser and FirewallPassword settings are used to connect and authenticate to the Firewall. If the authentication fails, the component throws an exception.

NOTE: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

KeepAliveInterval:   The retry interval, in milliseconds, to be used when a TCP keep-alive packet is sent and no response is received.

When set, TCPKeepAlive will automatically be set to true. A TCP keep-alive packet will be sent after a period of inactivity as defined by KeepAliveTime. If no acknowledgement is received from the remote host the keep-alive packet will be re-sent. This setting specifies the interval at which the successive keep-alive packets are sent in milliseconds. This system default if this value is not specified here is 1 second.

Note: This value is not applicable in macOS.

KeepAliveTime:   The inactivity time in milliseconds before a TCP keep-alive packet is sent.

When set, TCPKeepAlive will automatically be set to true. By default the operating system will determine the time a connection is idle before a TCP keep-alive packet is sent. This system default if this value is not specified here is 2 hours. In many cases a shorter interval is more useful. Set this value to the desired interval in milliseconds.

Linger:   When set to True, connections are terminated gracefully.

This property controls how a connection is closed. The default is True.

In the case that Linger is True (default), there are two scenarios for determining how long the connection will linger. The first, if LingerTime is 0 (default), the system will attempt to send pending data for a connection until the default IP protocol timeout expires.

In the second scenario, LingerTime is a positive value, the system will attempt to send pending data until the specified LingerTime is reached. If this attempt fails, then the system will reset the connection.

The default behavior (which is also the default mode for stream sockets) might result in a long delay in closing the connection. Although the component returns control immediately, the system could hold system resources until all pending data is sent (even after your application closes).

Setting this property to False forces an immediate disconnection. If you know that the other side has received all the data you sent (by a client acknowledgment, for example), setting this property to False might be the appropriate course of action.

LingerTime:   Time in seconds to have the connection linger.

LingerTime is the time, in seconds, to leave the socket connection linger. This value is 0 by default, which means it will use the default IP protocol timeout.

LocalHost:   The name of the local host through which connections are initiated or accepted.

The LocalHost setting contains the name of the local host as obtained by the gethostname() system call, or if the user has assigned an IP address, the value of that address.

In multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface) setting LocalHost to the value of an interface will make the component initiate connections (or accept in the case of server components) only through that interface.

If the component is connected, the LocalHost setting shows the IP address of the interface through which the connection is made in internet dotted format (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd). In most cases, this is the address of the local host, except for multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface).

LocalPort:   The port in the local host where the component binds.

This must be set before a connection is attempted. It instructs the component to bind to a specific port (or communication endpoint) in the local machine.

Setting this to 0 (default) enables the system to choose a port at random. The chosen port will be shown by LocalPort after the connection is established.

LocalPort cannot be changed once a connection is made. Any attempt to set this when a connection is active will generate an error.

This; setting is useful when trying to connect to services that require a trusted port in the client side. An example is the remote shell (rsh) service in UNIX systems.

MaxLineLength:   The maximum amount of data to accumulate when no EOL is found.

MaxLineLength is the size of an internal buffer, which holds received data while waiting for an EOL string.

If an EOL string is found in the input stream before MaxLineLength bytes are received, the DataIn event is fired with the EOL parameter set to True, and the buffer is reset.

If no EOL is found, and MaxLineLength bytes are accumulated in the buffer, the DataIn event is fired with the EOL parameter set to False, and the buffer is reset.

The minimum value for MaxLineLength is 256 bytes. The default value is 2048 bytes.

MaxTransferRate:   The transfer rate limit in bytes per second.

This setting can be used to throttle outbound TCP traffic. Set this to the number of bytes to be sent per second. By default this is not set and there is no limit.

ProxyExceptionsList:   A semicolon separated list of hosts and IPs to bypass when using a proxy.

This setting optionally specifies a semicolon separated list of hostnames or IP addresses to bypass when a proxy is in use. When requests are made to hosts specified in this property the proxy will not be used. For instance:

www.google.com;www.nsoftware.com

TCPKeepAlive:   Determines whether or not the keep alive socket option is enabled.

If set to true, the socket's keep-alive option is enabled and keep-alive packets will be sent periodically to maintain the connection. Set KeepAliveTime and KeepAliveInterval to configure the timing of the keep-alive packets.

Note: This value is not applicable in Java.

TcpNoDelay:   Whether or not to delay when sending packets.

When true, the socket will send all data that is ready to send at once. When false, the socket will send smaller buffered packets of data at small intervals. This is known as the Nagle algorithm.

By default, this config is set to false.

UseIPv6:   Whether to use IPv6.

When set to 0 (default), the component will use IPv4 exclusively. When set to 1, the component will use IPv6 exclusively. To instruct the component to prefer IPv6 addresses, but use IPv4 if IPv6 is not supported on the system, this setting should be set to 2. The default value is 0. Possible values are:

0 IPv4 Only
1 IPv6 Only
2 IPv6 with IPv4 fallback

UseNTLMv2:   Whether to use NTLM V2.

When authenticating with NTLM this setting specifies whether NTLM V2 is used. By default this value is False and NTLM V1 will be used. Set this to True to use NTLM V2.

SSL Configuration Settings

LogSSLPackets:   Controls whether SSL packets are logged when using the internal security API.

When the UseInternalSecurityAPI configuration setting is True, this setting controls whether SSL packets should be logged. By default, this setting is False, as it is only useful for debugging purposes.

When enabled, SSL packet logs are output using the SSLStatus event, which will fire each time an SSL packet is sent or received.

Enabling this setting has no effect if UseInternalSecurityAPI is False.

ReuseSSLSession:   Determines if the SSL session is reused.

If set to true, the component will reuse the context if and only if the following criteria are met:

  • The target host name is the same.
  • The system cache entry has not expired (default timeout is 10 hours).
  • The application process that calls the function is the same.
  • The logon session is the same.
  • The instance of the component is the same.

SSLCACerts:   A newline separated list of CA certificate to use during SSL client authentication.

This setting specifies one or more CA certificates to be included in the request when performing SSL client authentication. Some servers require the entire chain, including CA certificates, to be presented when performing SSL client authentication. The value of this setting is a newline (CrLf) separated list of certificates. For instance:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIEKzCCAxOgAwIBAgIRANTET4LIkxdH6P+CFIiHvTowDQYJKoZIhvcNAQELBQAw

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

SSLCipherStrength:   The minimum cipher strength used for bulk encryption.

This minimum cipher strength largely dependent on the security modules installed on the system. If the cipher strength specified is not supported, an error will be returned when connections are initiated.

Please note that this setting contains the minimum cipher strength requested from the security library. The actual cipher strength used for the connection is shown by the SSLStatus event.

Use this setting with caution. Requesting a lower cipher strength than necessary could potentially cause serious security vulnerabilities in your application.

When the provider is OpenSSL, SSLCipherStrength is currently not supported. This functionality is instead made available through the OpenSSLCipherList config setting.

SSLContextProtocol:   The protocol used when getting an SSLContext instance.

Possible values are SSL, SSLv2, SSLv3, TLS and TLSv1. Use it only in case your security provider does not support TLS. This is the parameter "protocol" inside the SSLContext.getInstance(protocol) call.

SSLEnabledCipherSuites:   The cipher suite to be used in an SSL negotiation.

The enabled cipher suites to be used in SSL negotiation.

By default, the enabled cipher suites will include all available ciphers ("*").

The special value "*" means that the component will pick all of the supported cipher suites. If SSLEnabledCipherSuites is set to any other value, only the specified cipher suites will be considered.

Multiple cipher suites are separated by semicolons.

Note: This value must be set after UseInternalSecurityAPI is set.

Example values: obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=*"); obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=SSL_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA"); obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=SSL_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA; SSL_DHE_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA"); Possible values when UseInternalSecurityAPI is False (default) include:

When TLS 1.3 is negotiated (see SSLEnabledProtocols) only the following cipher suites are supported:

  • TLS_AES_256_GCM_SHA384
  • TLS_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256
  • TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256

SSLEnabledCipherSuites is used together with SSLCipherStrength.

SSLEnabledProtocols:   Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.

Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.

Not all supported protocols are enabled by default (the value of this setting is 4032). If you want more granular control over the enabled protocols, you can set this property to the binary 'OR' of one or more of the following values:

TLS1.312288 (Hex 3000)
TLS1.23072 (Hex C00) (Default)
TLS1.1768 (Hex 300) (Default)
TLS1 192 (Hex C0) (Default)
SSL3 48 (Hex 30)
SSL2 12 (Hex 0C)

When the provider is OpenSSL, SSLCipherStrength is currently not supported. This functionality is instead made available through the OpenSSLCipherList setting.

Note: TLS 1.1 and TLS1.2 support are only available starting with Windows 7.

Note: Enabling TLS 1.3 will automatically set UseInternalSecurityAPI to True.

SSLEnableRenegotiation:   Whether the renegotiation_info SSL extension is supported.

This setting specifies whether the renegotiation_info SSL extension will be used in the request when using the internal security API. This setting is true by default, but can be set to false to disable the extension.

This setting is only applicable when UseInternalSecurityAPI is set to true.

SSLIncludeCertChain:   Whether the entire certificate chain is included in the SSLServerAuthentication event.

This setting specifies whether the Encoded parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event contains the full certificate chain. By default this value is False and only the leaf certificate will be present in the Encoded parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event.

If set to True all certificates returned by the server will be present in the Encoded parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event. This includes the leaf certificate, any intermediate certificate, and the root certificate.

Note: When UseInternalSecurityAPI is set to True this value is automatically set to True. This is needed for proper validation when using the internal provider.

SSLKeyLogFile:   The location of a file where per-session secrets are written for debugging purposes.

This setting optionally specifies the full path to a file on disk where per-session secrets are stored for debugging purposes.

When set, the component will save the session secrets in the same format as the SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable functionality used by most major browsers and tools such as Chrome, Firefox, and cURL. This file can then be used in tools such as Wireshark to decrypt TLS traffice for debugging purposes. When writing to this file the component will only append, it will not overwrite previous values.

Note: This setting is only applicable when UseInternalSecurityAPI is set to True.

SSLNegotiatedCipher:   Returns the negotiated ciphersuite.

Returns the ciphersuite negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. IPDaemon) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipher[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedCipherStrength:   Returns the negotiated ciphersuite strength.

Returns the strength of the ciphersuite negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. IPDaemon) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipherStrength[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedCipherSuite:   Returns the negotiated ciphersuite.

Returns the ciphersuite negotiated during the SSL handshake represented as a single string.

Note: For server components (e.g. IPDaemon) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipherSuite[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedKeyExchange:   Returns the negotiated key exchange algorithm.

Returns the key exchange algorithm negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. IPDaemon) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedKeyExchange[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedKeyExchangeStrength:   Returns the negotiated key exchange algorithm strength.

Returns the strenghth of the key exchange algorithm negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. IPDaemon) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedKeyExchangeStrength[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedProtocol:   Returns the negotiated protocol version.

Returns the protocol version negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. IPDaemon) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedProtocol[connId]");

SSLProvider:   The name of the security provider to use.

Change this setting to use security providers other than the system default.

Use this setting with caution. Disabling SSL security or pointing to the wrong provider could potentially cause serious security vulnerabilities in your application.

The special value "*" (default) picks the default SSL provider defined in the system.

The special value "Internal" picks the internal SSL implementation. This does not rely on any system libraries. This is equivalent to setting UseInternalSecurityAPI to True.

Note: On Windows systems, the default SSL Provider is "Microsoft Unified Security Protocol Provider" and cannot be changed except to a value of "Internal".

SSLServerCACerts:   A newline separated list of CA certificate to use during SSL server certificate validation.

This setting optionally specifies one or more CA certificates to be used when verifying the server certificate. When verifying the server's certificate the certificates trusted by the system will be used as part of the verification process. If the server's CA certificates are not installed to the trusted system store, they may be specified here so they are included when performing the verification process. This setting should only be set if the server's CA certificates are not already trusted on the system and cannot be installed to the trusted system store.

The value of this setting is a newline (CrLf) separated list of certificates. For instance:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIEKzCCAxOgAwIBAgIRANTET4LIkxdH6P+CFIiHvTowDQYJKoZIhvcNAQELBQAw

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

SSLTrustManagerFactoryAlgorithm:   The algorithm to be used to create a TrustManager through TrustManagerFactory.

Possible values include SunX509. This is the parameter "algorithm" inside the TrustManagerFactory.getInstance(algorithm) call.

TLS12SignatureAlgorithms:   Defines the allowed TLS 1.2 signature algorithms when UseInternalSecurityAPI is True.

This setting specifies the allowed server certificate signature algorithms when UseInternalSecurityAPI is True and SSLEnabledProtocols is set to allow TLS 1.2.

When specified the component will verify that the server certificate signature algorithm is among the values specified in this setting. If the server certificate signature algorithm is unsupported the component throws an exception.

The format of this value is a comma separated list of hash-signature combinations. For instance: IPPort.Config("UseInternalSecurityAPI=true"); IPPort.Config("SSLEnabledProtocols=3072"); //TLS 1.2 IPPort.Config("TLS12SignatureAlgorithms=sha256-rsa,sha256-dsa,sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa"); The default value for this setting is sha512-ecdsa,sha512-rsa,sha512-dsa,sha384-ecdsa,sha384-rsa,sha384-dsa,sha256-ecdsa,sha256-rsa,sha256-dsa,sha224-ecdsa,sha224-rsa,sha224-dsa,sha1-ecdsa,sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa.

In order to not restrict the server's certificate signature algorithm, specify an empty string as the value for this setting, which will cause the signature_algorithms TLS 1.2 extension to not be sent.

TLS12SupportedGroups:   The supported groups for ECC.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.2 for ECC.

The default value is ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1.

When using TLS 1.2 and UseInternalSecurityAPI is set to True, the values refer to the supported groups for ECC. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1" (default)

TLS13KeyShareGroups:   The groups for which to pregenerate key shares.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange. The groups specified here will have key share data pregenerated locally before establishing a connection. This can prevent an additional round trip during the handshake if the group is supported by the server.

The default value is set to balance common supported groups and the computational resources required to generate key shares. As a result only some groups are included by default in this setting.

Note: All supported groups can always be used during the handshake even if not listed here, but if a group is used which is not present in this list it will incur an additional round trip and time to generate the key share for that group.

In most cases this setting does not need to be modified. This should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.

The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072

The values are ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448"
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1"
  • "ffdhe_2048" (default)
  • "ffdhe_3072" (default)
  • "ffdhe_4096"
  • "ffdhe_6144"
  • "ffdhe_8192"

TLS13Provider:   The TLS 1.3 implementation to be used.

This setting specifies the TLS 1.3 implementation which will be used when TLS 1.3 is enabled via SSLEnabledProtocols. Possible values are:

  • 0 (Internal - Default)
  • 1 (Platform)

The platform provider is only supported on Windows 11 / Windows Server 2022 and up. The default internal provider is available on all platforms and is not restricted to any specific OS version.

If set to 1 (Platform provider) please be aware of the following notes:

  • The platform provider is only available on Windows 11 / Windows Server 2022 and up.
  • SSLEnabledCipherSuites and other similar SSL configuration settings are not supported.
  • If SSLEnabledProtocols includes both TLS 1.3 and TLS 1.2 the above restrictions are still applicable even if TLS 1.2 is negotiated. Enabling TLS 1.3 with the platform provider changes the implementation used for all TLS versions.

TLS13SignatureAlgorithms:   The allowed certificate signature algorithms.

This setting holds a comma separated list of allowed signature algorithms. Possible values are:

  • "ed25519" (default)
  • "ed448" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp256r1_sha256" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp384r1_sha384" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp521r1_sha512" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha256" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha384" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha512" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha256" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha384" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha512" (default)
The default value is rsa_pss_sha256,rsa_pss_sha384,rsa_pss_sha512,rsa_pkcs1_sha256,rsa_pkcs1_sha384,rsa_pkcs1_sha512,ecdsa_secp256r1_sha256,ecdsa_secp384r1_sha384,ecdsa_secp521r1_sha512,ed25519,ed448. This setting is only applicable when SSLEnabledProtocols includes TLS 1.3.
TLS13SupportedGroups:   The supported groups for (EC)DHE key exchange.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange. This setting should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.

The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_x448,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072,ffdhe_4096,ffdhe_6144,ffdhe_8192

The values are ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)

Socket Configuration Settings

AbsoluteTimeout:   Determines whether timeouts are inactivity timeouts or absolute timeouts.

If AbsoluteTimeout is set to True, any method which does not complete within Timeout seconds will be aborted. By default, AbsoluteTimeout is False, and the timeout is an inactivity timeout.

Note: This option is not valid for UDP ports.

FirewallData:   Used to send extra data to the firewall.

When the firewall is a tunneling proxy, use this property to send custom (additional) headers to the firewall (e.g. headers for custom authentication schemes).

InBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the incoming queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be receiving. Increasing the value of the InBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the component is activated the InBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.

OutBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the outgoing queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be sending. Increasing the value of the OutBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the component is activated the OutBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.

Base Configuration Settings

BuildInfo:   Information about the product's build.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the product's build.

GUIAvailable:   Tells the component whether or not a message loop is available for processing events.

In a GUI-based application, long-running blocking operations may cause the application to stop responding to input until the operation returns. The component will attempt to discover whether or not the application has a message loop and, if one is discovered, it will process events in that message loop during any such blocking operation.

In some non-GUI applications, an invalid message loop may be discovered that will result in errant behavior. In these cases, setting GUIAvailable to false will ensure that the component does not attempt to process external events.

LicenseInfo:   Information about the current license.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the license this instance of a component is using. It will return the following information:

  • Product: The product the license is for.
  • Product Key: The key the license was generated from.
  • License Source: Where the license was found (e.g., RuntimeLicense, License File).
  • License Type: The type of license installed (e.g., Royalty Free, Single Server).
UseDaemonThreads:   Whether threads created by the component are daemon threads.

If set to True (default), when the component creates a thread, the thread's Daemon property will be explicitly set to True. When set to False, the component will not set the Daemon property on the created thread. The default value is True.

UseInternalSecurityAPI:   Tells the component whether or not to use the system security libraries or an internal implementation.

By default the component will use the system security libraries to perform cryptographic functions. Setting this to True tells the component to use the internal implementation instead of using the system's security API.
