anuraag kb (93) | asked Aug 06 '20, 2:27 a.m.

Can you let me know if there are authentication types in addition to Username,Password / Kerberos / SSLCert/ SmartCard for custom adapter connectivity to the ETM server...?


Also, is token based authentication available?

 The general mechanism is explained here: https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/NativeClientAuthentication

 Thanks Ralph for the link. Does the ETM tool allow a user to generate a token from UI that can be used for authorization instead of username/password..?

The answer above is all I know. I assume you could use OAUTH in such a way, but I am not an expert.

I think regardless what you do, you end up with some kind of password like information you have to store if the automation is supposed to run against the server. I would suggest to use an encryption mechanism to encrypt the password saved on disk. Even with a password file, if you have an app that can read and decrypt that, you have an issue.

Okay. On the OAuth side, we are aware how to generate the consumer key and set the consumer password. This constitutes OAuth 1.0. 


As Jazz supports OAuth 2.0 as well, can you let me know how to retrieve the bearer token for the same?

And can you also let me know if the APIs provided in integration.client.jar support OAuth auth type?

Anurag,


Are you referring authentication using application password with OIDC? 

Please refer Authentication of a native client with a Jazz-based application  for addressing bearer challenge related implementation in native application.

Thanks Mehul, I had already suggested to look there in my initial response.
