  1. Open a web browser window.
  2. In the address field, enter the URL for the namespace you want to access, in this format:
    http[s]://namespace-name.tenant-name.hcp-domain-name/browser
    For example, to use HTTPS to browse the finance.europe.hcp.example.com namespace, enter:
    https://finance.europe.hcp.example.com/browser
    The namespace configuration determines whether you need to use HTTP or HTTPS.
    Note:
    • You cannot use an IP address in the URL to access the Namespace Browser.
    • If you enter a URL that includes /rest, HCP redirects you to a URL that includes /browser.
One of these happens:
  • If all of these are true, you’re automatically logged in to the Namespace Browser, which opens to the Content page:
    • The namespace supports AD authentication.
    • Your web browser is configured to support single sign-on.
    • You’re currently logged in to a Windows client with an AD user account that HCP recognizes.

    This is single sign-on. No further action is required.

  • If both of these are true, the Namespace Browser opens to the Content page:
    • The namespace does not support AD authentication.
    • The namespace supports anonymous access through the HTTP protocol.

    In this case, you access the Namespace Browser as an unauthenticated user. No further action is required.

  • If both of these are true, the Namespace Browser login page appears:
    • The namespace does not support AD authentication.
    • The namespace requires user authentication for access to the Namespace Browser.
    Note: The URL for the Namespace Browser login page always includes HTTPS. If the namespace does not support HTTP with SSL security, the URL for the login page includes HTTPS but the URLs for other Namespace Browser pages include HTTP.
  • If the namespace supports AD authentication but any of the following are true, a message appears indicating that single sign-on was not possible:
    • Your web browser is not configured for single sign-on.
    • You’re not logged in to a Windows client with an AD user account that HCP recognizes.
    • You’re not on a Windows client.
