No authentication, basic authentication (username and password in a header) or Windows authentication (configured automatically to use the application pool identity account).
Basic authentication. Your specified username and password will be Base64 encoded automatically.
Token-based authentication according to the OAuth 2.0 standard. Many APIs use OAuth 2.0 for authorization, and will require an OAuth provider to include the additional information about how to authorize against the service.
Note: When adding an OAuth provider you may get an message that the provider is not authorized if some of the provider configuration is incorrect (for example the username, password, secret etc), or if you use a proxy it could be that the proxy is not configured. See How to configure SquaredUp DS to use a proxy.
Complete the provider fields, using your API provider's online documentation as a guide.
ignore invalid ssl: Turn the on/off switch to on if you are using a self-signed certificate.
default headers headers sent with all requests using this provider, for example the API token in the format the API requires.
url parameters url parameters sent with all requests using this provider. For example, a query parameter that is always used can be added here in the provider to save adding it to every dashboard configuration.
You are now ready to use this provider in a Web API tile (see How to use the Web API tile).
