The FeedHenry Platform has a feature rich Authentication and Authorization mechanism. At the core of this is the concept of Auth Policies. An Auth Policy allows you to define how your Users will Authenticate themselves when accessing your Applications and App Store Items, and also allows you to define various Authorization checks.
FeedHenry supports the following Authentication providers:
In the Auth Policy list overview area, details such as the Policy Id and Authentication Type are shown. There are options to create a new Policy or Edit and existing Policy.
When you create an Auth Policy you need to specify an Id for the Policy, along with specific information for the Authentication Type:
For specific information on each Authentication Type, see the relevant sub-section:
Further to your User Authenticating themselves, you can also specify Authorization measures:
This check will ensure the the User is a valid User that exists on the FeedHenry Platform. See the Users section for more information on Administering Users in the FeedHenry Platform.
This simply allows you to add specific Users that you want to be Authorized to access your App. If the User is not in this list, they will not be allowed access to your App.
