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:
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.
