E-IB: Options "User/Password Required" and "Req Verification" in Securing PeopleSoft REST Services (Doc ID 1900704.1)

Last updated on JULY 11, 2017

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.53 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

On PeopleTool 8.53 there are two options related to securing a Peoplesoft REST Service, "User/Password Required" and "Req Verification".

Questions: 

  1. What are the purposes of these two options and their relation to each other?

  2. How to properly pass the user credentials from a third party client?

  3. In the generated WADL, when "User/Password Required" is checked and "Req Verification" is "None", the generated WADL has no authentication parameters.
    But when "Req Verification"="Basic Authentication", no matter "User/Password Required" status, generated WADL do have authentication parameter, why so?

  4. What does it mean style="header" in the generated WADL authentication parameter, and how to use it when consuming the WADL document?
