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 API 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.
