Authenticating when connecting to a remote development RTC


Jose Miguel Ordax Cassa (2.4k2122100) | asked Nov 04 '10, 7:11 a.m.
Hi, I have created a connection to a Development RTC to be able to add
links between my assets and RTC work items.

Question is, is it possible to automatize an authentication in the
connection so when I try to add a new link (Resource attribute) I don't
get the login page?

Thanks in advance,

Chemi.

RTC links is based on oAuth, it is a combination of a server to server token, as well as User authorization...

i.e., When I user creates a link to RTC, they authenticate with RTC ... this imply that the user authorize RAM to expose that (work item) information from RTC in their behalf.

Hence, no automation for this kind of links.

Understood. Thanks for the answer.

Can you explain me which is the purpose of the Authentication URL, User
and Password fields when defining a Jazz connection? I thought it was to
avoid the user/password challenge using an predefined user/password.
I don't understand the objective of those fields reading the InfoCenter.

Thanks,

Chemi.
