OAuth sessions?

Hi Anna,

Do you have any plans to include passing OAuth tokens as part of the REST nodes?

Struggling to work out how to authenticate on some RESTful servers without being able to pass through OAuth id/secret.

Hi Simon,

 

OAuth support is possible in pricinple. We did not have plans to add that to our nodes so far. However, there was we idea of adding an extension point that allows you do define your own plugin for authentication purposes.

 

Would that be suitable?

 

Since we are very busy at the moment I cannot tell how long it would take to implement.

Sounds eminently suitable, Anna.

Look forward to seeing it in the KREST collection.

Hi Simon,

 

for now I have added extension point (com.cenix.krest.nodes.cookie) that allows to add cookie to the HTTP request. It should be available with the next nightly build. 

 

Supporting additional authorization handlers is a little more complicated since this might also trigger UI changes. I will see what I can do.
