Authentication Providers

Access to the API Server REST endpoints is controlled using an API Project-specific authentication provider. As an application developer, use the built-in authentication provider so that you can use the users/roles stored in the admin database. For larger organizations, LDAP or Active Directory (or perhaps an SQL database) is more appropriate for security purposes. The pluggable JavaScript library is added to the API Server. Set up configuration using the Authentication Providers page.
For more information about the creating a custom authentication provider example, see here. The Authentication Provider JavaScript wrapper is loaded using the API Properties dialog under Libraries/User Library.
