Thank you so much for the reply. I was beginning to wonder. :-)

It's too bad that you have to actually go through the sign-in page for guest view. I would ideally like to give my users a URL that simply displays the list of open bugs without requiring them to go through the sign-in page first.

I'll look through the google results to see what I can find.

I've posted this twice before with no answer. Would someone please
respond. Is there a way to enable Gnatsweb to let guest (ie - users
that have no signed-on) to view a bug db? If so, how?

First, you need to deal with your website authentication (or not) to
allow a guest account.

Second, you need to provide a gnatsd.access file with a guest account
with some known password (empty passwords should also be possible) that
is given view privilege.

An entry like this:


in your gnatsd.user_access file should mean that a loging with userid
'guest' and password 'guest' should get the view access you want. Be
aware that you would want to place this near the top of the file before
any wild-card login entries.

For more information, you may wish to look at google with
a search string like

  view guest gnats

There have been various threads and bug reports over the last few years
on this topic.

        Good luck,
