User Authentication Type page (for API)

Choose the authentication type for API users:

  • Windows Authentication enables users to send requests to the API under their current Windows accounts, without having to obtain an access token and specify it in requests.

  • Access Token Authentication requires that users first obtain an API access token and then specify it in the Authorization section of every request sent to the API.

    IMPORTANT: If you are planning to use your APIĀ instance as a backend for Alloy Navigator Mobile App or Alloy Inventory Scanner, choose Access Token Authentication. Both our native mobile applications require the API configured for Access Token authentication.
