Authentication for Managed APIs

Authentication for Managed APIs

You can configure basic authentication and JSON Web Token (JWT) authentication for managed APIs.
If you configure basic authentication, the user groups and users that are provided access to the API in Informatica Cloud Application Integration can invoke the API.
If you configure JWT authentication, you can generate a token using API Manager or API Portal and use the generated token to invoke the API. JWT is an open standard that helps in the secure transmission of information between API consumers and REST web services such as Informatica Cloud Application Integration service APIs. For more information about configuring JWT authentication, see JSON web token authentication for managed APIs.
You can change the authentication method of a managed API. For example, change the authentication method from basic authentication to JSON Web Token (JWT) authentication. When you change the authentication method, the API might become unavailable to users for a very short period of time.
You can create groups of managed APIs and then generate a token for the group to use when invoking any JWT authenticated API in the group. You can add or remove APIs from the group. For more information about managing API groups see API group management.
