Authentication is a crucial aspect of application security, particularly for applications that handle sensitive data. Fastgen provides robust authentication options to ensure secure access to your APIs and manage user authentication efficiently.

Authentication Methods

Fastgen offers three primary methods to safeguard your API endpoints:

Public Access

  • Unrestricted Access: The Public option allows open access to the API endpoint, making it accessible to anyone on the internet. This setting is suitable for endpoints that do not contain sensitive information.

API Token Protection

  • Secured by API Tokens: Secure your endpoints by requiring pre-defined API tokens. Requests must include one of your API tokens in the Authorization header, formatted as Authorization: Bearer <token>.

User Authentication

  • Access for Authenticated Users: This option ensures that only users with valid login credentials can access the endpoint. Currently, the ‘Default User’ group is the only available option, which permits access to logged-in users with an active session from your project domain.
