Connected System Authentication

Introduction

Connected systems allow designers to manage authentication details for multiple integrations in one place. There are several authentication options available for connected systems.

Authentication Types

None

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.

API Key Properties

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:

Field Description
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.

Basic Authentication Properties

The following properties are available for configuration when Basic Authentication is selected as the authentication type:

Field Description
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.
