REST resource OAuth 2-legged
The Details screen of the REST resource OAuth 2-legged asset allows you to set the parameters for 2-legged OAuth authentication. Read the Asset screens documentation for more information about the Status, Future status, Thumbnail, and Details sections.
This section allows you to define the OAuth parameters for authentication when communicating with an OAuth secure REST web service. The OAuth parameters section of the Details screen is shown in the figure.
|The required parameters must be acquired from the Rest web server with which you are communicating.|
The fields available in this section are as follows:
- Consumer key
Enter the consumer key provided to you by the service provider.
- Consumer secret
Enter the consumer secret provided to you by the service provider.
- Signature method
Select either HMAC-sha1 or plaintext as the method used to sign the authorization requests made to the OAuth secure server.
To do this, on the Details screen of the REST resource, select OAuth in the authentication type field and click Save. An additional field will appear, allowing you to select the REST resource OAuth 2-legged asset.
