Connected systems allow designers to manage authentication details for multiple integrations in one place. There are several authentication options available for connected systems.
No specific authentication will be applied. You can provide custom authentication values in the integration's URL, parameters, or headers as required by the external system. Client certificate/mutual SSL authentication can be enabled by uploading client certificates in the Admin Console. Services that use self-signed or internal SSL certificates can be enabled by uploading trusted server certificates in the Admin Console.
Although API keys can be configured directly in the integration headers or parameters, the only way to securely configure an API key for an integration is by using the connected system object. The following properties are available for configuration when API key is selected as the authentication type:
|Send As||Required. This field specifies whether the API key should be sent as an http header or a query parameter.|
|Header/Parameter Name||Required. The key identifier of the API key.|
|Value||Required. The key value of the API key. This value is masked to prevent unauthorized users from seeing and should be treated as a password.|

The following properties are available for configuration when Basic Authentication is selected as the authentication type:
|Username||Optional. The username to use for authentication. This value is encrypted and supports environment specific configuration.|
|Password||Optional. The password to use for authentication. This value is masked, encrypted and supports environment specific configuration.|
|Send credentials preemptively instead of waiting for a 401 authentication challenge||Optional. Determines whether or not authentication credentials are sent only after a 401 Not Authorized response or, when selected, before the system has challenged.|
