Is it possible to connect to Doors next generation API via API key authentication

Dimple Shah (11) | asked Dec 01 '22, 6:13 a.m.

 We want to connect to requirement management of Doors Next Generation in automation, without storing the user credentials in the configuration.

Two types of authentications are possible
1.  The basic authentication with the user name and password, but we don't want to store the user credentials in the configuration
2. OAuth authentication, in this the token get expired in certain time and server restart

Is there any other way to authenticate with requirement management of Doors Next Generation where the token will have longer life span like API key and credentials will not be required to be stored in the configuration?

 Perhaps it would be possible to use the same technique as configuring for smart card authentication (not sure... just speculating). See the docs or the deployment wiki for more information.

 This post explains my experience: . It points to the origin of the information here:

These are all authentication methods I am aware of. I know that most of our customers run automation with special user ID's and passwords. I doubt that there are API keys at the moment, beyond what is explained above.
