Authentication and security

Authentication

Autentication is managed using Basic Authentication type.

The BEE resource server works as a proxy for FSP (File system provider) and consumes FSP API endpoints adding the following fields to HTTP Request Headers.

Authorization: Basic base64(username:password)
X-BEE-ClientId: ClientId
X-BEE-Uid: uid

 

Field Description

Authorization

Authentication used is Basic. A string formatted as username:password and encoded in base64 is passed

X-BEE-ClientId

The ClientId (to identify the integrator)

X-BEE-Uid

The uid (ex. useful to identify the user of an integrator)

 

The integrator must save...

  • Username
  • Password
  • Base URL

... in the Configuration section of the BEE Plugin developer panel.

HTTPS

The API must use HTTPS to grant secure connections and safe data transfer.
