Securing RSS Feeds

  • Securing RSS Feeds
  • Hi,

    Is there any way out of the box to secure feeds in SF4.0? If not what would be the best approach in customizing this to add a method of securing the feeds?

    Thanks,
    Steve
  • Hi SteveW,

    There is no implementation for securing RSS feeds. Where you want to implement this - frontend or backend?

  • Hi Ivan,

    I'd like to secure it on the frontend.

    Thanks,

  • Hello SteveW,

    This would be possible with a custom Pipe that inherits from Telerik.Sitefinity.Publishing.Pipes.SyndicationPipe  and you should override uildSyndicationItems(IList<IDictionary<string, object>> internalFormat). One of the parameters of this method is internalFormat from where you can get data for the content item and decide whether to rend it or not.

    Currently there is an issue with the custom pipes and actually you will not be able to create a custom pipe. We are working on the issue and we logged a task for it.

    Best wishes,
