I'm in the process of developing REST APIs to be used in a Mobile App.
I do not want to support 3rd part OAUTH, I want to go for First Party OAUTH
- User supplies username/password.
- Mobile App calls a REST API to login and recieves a Token on successful login.
- The Mobile App then calls successive REST APIs and keeps passing the Token in
the request header.
I can only find the REST 2.0 Development Guide which talks about only supporting
a custom Apex-Session request header for First Party authentication and not user
On another front, I want to be able to intercept the REST PLSQL Procedures to
pass some application context that needs to be reinstated on every call similar
to apps_initialize in E-Business Suite if you are familiar with that. Is there
a way to have pre-processing for procedure call where I can get information from
the request header and then set this kind of context?
