Require authentication

Require authentication

You can specify whether non-interactive sessions require authentication from the High Security Settings module.

About this task

A non-interactive session bypasses the UI to connect to the instance at an API level. Typically, non-interactive sessions use set protocols such as JSON, SOAP, XSD, or WSDL. By default, all non-interactive sessions require authentication.

Procedure

  1. Log in with an administrator user with the security_admin role.
  2. Elevate your privileges to use security_admin.
  3. Navigate to System Security > High Security Settings.
  4. Select the matching "Requires authorization" option for the protocol you want to set. For example, Requires authorization for incoming SOAP requests.
  5. Select the check box to require authentication for the non-interactive session method. Clear the check box to allow the non-interactive session method to connect without providing any credentials.
    Note: Activating the Non-Interactive Sessions plugin on an existing system may prevent any existing users that authorize SOAP and WSDL-based integrations from logging in unless they already have the soap role. See Updating Web Service User Accounts for Strict Security to manually update existing integration users.
