REST API oAuth2.0

Status : Delivered
over 2 years ago

Hello,

Brief Description: Enable Micro Focus Operations Orchestration to leverage oAuth2.0 to authenticate against REST API.

Benefits/Value

  • oAuth2.0 provides a much stronger authentication /authorization model then Basic Auth
  • If a token gets compromised under oAuth2.0 and that tokens time to live is only set to a hour. The attacker has a limit window with that token. Unlike Basic Auth, the token (Base64) continues to be valid until the password is changed

Design details:

 

  • Have the ability to leverage cutomers identity provider, in our example Azure Active Directory
