Token-based authentication made easy
With this release, you can create integrations with the Matrix42 Digital Workspace Platform using JSON Web Token (JWT). This user authentication mechanism is becoming increasingly popular in applications. JWT is considered a popular standard for securing APIs. It strengthens or confirms trusted relationships between two parties exchanging data.
Possible uses of JWT
- prevent errors caused by insufficient authorization,
- enable easy distribution of information flows between servers,
- organize a single access point for different services using the same credentials,
- and increase service efficiency.
In this session, we will show you how to set up a JWT-based bidirectional Google Event Connector from scratch. To do this, we will take advantage of the concept of Service Connections and configure one based on JWT authentication.
