How to use it

Advanced authentication options

  • authority can be inmation, ad (Active Directory - domain account), machine (local account)

  • username can be provided in 'User Principal Name' or 'Down-Level Logon Name'

source: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/secauthn/user-name-formats

auth authentication and authorization fields:

options = {
    'auth': {
        'username': '',
        'password': '',
        'authority': 'inmation | ad | machine',
        'grant_type': 'password',
        'include_claims': ['email', 'family_name', 'given_name', 'middle_name', 'phone_number']
    },
    'authorization': 'Bearer eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9...'
}

include_claims can only be used in combination with authority set to ad. The token will not be returned to the client but passed via the req argument into ExecFunction implementation.

Note: check Web API version which authorization options its supports.

Example Active Directory authentication:

options = {
    'auth': {
        'username': 'user@domain.com',
        'password': 'secret',
        'authority': 'ad',
        'grant_type': 'password'
    }
}

Example Bearer token authentication:

options = {
    'authorization': 'Bearer eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9...'
}

Example Basic authentication:

options = {
    'authorization': 'Basic dXNlcm5hbWU6cGFzc3dvcmQ='
}
