Using Apache as a Reverse Proxy with SiteMinder for Authentication

When using Apache as a reverse proxy to pass authentication to another application from SiteMinder you may need to send the header variable to your application. By default Apache is not passing these variables on and you need to set them up for your proxy.

RequestHeader set REMOTE_USER %{HTTP:UID}s

Above is an example of the variable UID being returned by SiteMinder and being assigned to the variable REMOTE_USER that will be provided to the end application.
