Hi folks,

This wiki page

has a link called "parameters" that refers back to this same URL.  However, the surrounding text implies that "parameters" refers to another page with details about configuring parameters for the RemoteUser servlet.

I am using jetty with apache httpd as a reverse HTTP proxy and I need to pass the REMOTE_USER variable from httpd to the IDP in a HTTP header.  I was able to figure this out after much googling. I suspect that the "parameters" link should lead to the information that I needed.

Some related information: jetty 9.3 now has a "http-forwarded" module that is configured for the HTTP headers X-Forwarded-For,  X-Forwarded-Proto, and friends. I used it in place of the "http" module (which "http-forwarded" extends) and it works great.  Might be worth a mention in the Jetty 9.3 setup wiki.
