As part of the API design process, you will need to specify which consumers can access your API (authentication) and what they are allowed to do (authorization).

Note: Talend Cloud API Designer allows you to define security parameters for design and documentation purposes, but security is not implemented automatically when using the API definition in Talend Studio.

You may want to simply define a common security for your entire API, or choose a finer policy with a specific security for a critical resource.

You may also want to specify that certain operations are freely accessible without authentication.

Talend Cloud API Designer can handle all these cases with the main security types:

  • Basic authentication
  • Bearer authentication
  • Digest authentication
  • OAuth 1.0
  • OAuth 2.0
  • OpenID Connect
  • Custom / API key
  • Pass through

Cookie authentication is not supported.
