There is a need to launch Automation Point Client from PAM and to automatically login. Automation Point Client is installed on a Windows server. It is not clear how to configure this.
The PAM feature to be used to launch a program on a Windows server and to supply it with the necessary credentials is RDP Transparent Login. Transparent Login requires that it be presented with a screen on which the UserID and Password field may both be seen, along with the Submit button. With Automation Point Client the program that is run is apview.exe. It does not prompt for credentials. The next step is to click Action and then Open remote connection. In the window that opens the address of the target system is entered, but still no prompt for credentials is seen. To get that you have to check the Use explicit credentials box and click Connect. The Login window appears and to this the Transparent Login script can inject the userid and password. It's just that Transparent Login is not able to take the user all the way through to the Login window automatically. It is not currently a feature of PAM to handle the multiple windows.
