HTTP Webserver authenticate

Postby JohnTube » November 23rd, 2017, 5:02 pm


I was going to use "Basic Authentication" then I have discovered "HTTP Webserver".
How am I supposed to use this type of authentication?
I get a shared secret but what's next?
There is no documentation and I tried to search for any hints on the forum but with no luck. I hope I did not miss any.

At first, I was hoping for a Web based API (REST, Graphql) to authenticate users using an external authentication provider.

Hey John,

No, that authentication type is a leftover from the Yahoo days, I can't even remember what it was used for, but it is not what you thought it was.

Which external authentications were you looking at and hoping to integrate?
