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

After you define these parameters, the end user has a New Connection dialog to collect any information required to complete the authentication.

Three types of authentication are supported:

  • Basic

  • OAuth 2.0 using either Authorization Code or Client Credential grant types

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

As you build your authentication within the Authentication dialog, the New Connection shows a preview of how it appears to your end users.
