Remote User Authentication problem

Hi! Scott.

Thank you for your advice.

But I've known about how Remote User authentication works because I've used it with Shibboleth IdP version 3.4.

So I tried to configure it with Shibboleth IdP version 4.2 and tomcat AJP, then it worked.

So, I recognized that jetty 10 dropped the AJP module by looking for information to solve the issue.

And I tried to reconfigure  Shibboleth IdP version 4.2  with jetty 10, but I couldn't solve the problem.

So, I don't think Jetty 10 can get the REMOTE_USER environment and pass it to the IDP.

How can I clear up this problem?

Does anyone give me some advice?

My environment is as follows;
Shibboleth IdP 4.2.1
openjdk 11.0.15

I appreciate any help you can give me.

You would start by acknowledging that you're wrong about REMOTE_USER and accept that it's not there (at least for the relevant path) and then debug your web server from there.
