Authentication is where you define the parameters required to create a connection to your service.

When an end user creates a connection to your service, the New Connection dialog collects the specific authentication details.

You can choose from three types of authentication:

  • Basic

  • OAuth 2.0 that uses either Authorization Code or Client Credential grant types

  • Custom authentication through an API key or other non-standard authentication process

As you build your authentication within the Authentication dialog, the Preview panel shows how your connection appears to your end users.
