    PLM4P 6.1.1 web service authentication methods

    989842

      Hi,

       

      Got a question on web services API authentication scheme on PLM4P 6.1.1.  We are currently using "option 1" where the username/password is coded using SetupAssistant.  In order to prevent just anyone in the company to obtain data through web services, we have to change the configuration to authenticate web service calls using individual username/password such as stated in the "option 2" per PLM4P EP guide and that requires a server certificate to be created to encrypt the communication.  Is it possible to implement "option 2" without creating a certificate so the communication is done via "http" but the caller will have to supply an username/password?

       

      Thank you in advance
