Fix Version/s: None
Component/s: APS Tasks
Currently the OOTB REST Task only allows basic auth (HTTP). You set endpoints and set basicauth username/password:
Customer needs to make call to endpoint that requires HTTPS would need cert for client.
Request is to extend the REST task and IDM endpoint credentials to at least provide https urls for endpoints as well as the client cert config for the named credentials for that end point
This is major issue with security of REST calls to external sources. They improvement request is for extension of the REST task to afford the use of https calls and ability to store/select cert for auth user used.
- add an additional table in IDM to provide SSL auth credentials (assume doman based certs)
- add an additional table to select and store cert (domain based)
- add selection of http/https protocol when configuring endpoint
Majority of external endpoints for REST calls are secured, at minimum need to be able to configure use of appropriate client/cert credentials to access.
