Support http authentication

Provide some way to indicate the required authentication (if any) for any given call. We use a combination of user credentials and api keys for our http basic auth, and would really like to see some way to support http authentication as part of the documentation and mockups. Also for Oauth scenarios perhaps?

        Seems, there has been no progress on this issue during the last several week, right?

        Hi,

        as we finally rolled the new API blueprint format as default into production last week, I am iterating with Z on the auth format on the blueprint side.

        I hope to push this into production in the upcoming 2-3 weeks, at least in beta. I'll keep you posted here.

        Regards,

        Lukas

        Hi Lukas,
        what is the status of BasicAuth integration?

      • TschelaTschela commented  · 

        Does the blueprint generation already support cURL authentication like

        curl https://domain.com/api/ -u username:

        as Jeremy mentioned?
        I can't find any information on this topic.

        We could use this too! Even like Jeremy states, would be awesome!

        Hi,

        format overhaul is in progress and should slowly blend into the current one.

        HTTP/OAuth is part of it, but honestly, it will take few more weeks before we'll be satisfied with syntax and before it will appear on production.

        We'll keep you posted!

        Hello, guys. Do u have a progress with basic http auth integration?

      • Jeremy BakerJeremy Baker commented  · 

        Yeah, this is a big one. Even just being able to do:

        > Authorization: Basic

        and have that translate in to the following curl example:

        curl -u 'username' https://domain.com/api/

        That would be awesome and save me a lot of extra explaining.
