OutSystems allows you to add basic authentication to the requests made to the REST APIs you are exposing.
For that, do the following:
- In the Logic tab, open the Integrations folder;
- Select the exposed REST API you want to change and set its Authentication property to
As a result, OutSystems creates the
OnAuthentication action in your REST API to handle basic authentication with:
- Username and Password input parameters holding the credentials passed in the request;
- The User_Login action to validate the credentials and identify the user.
All methods in the REST API will now require basic authentication. User credentials are managed in your end-user management application.
