Authenticate

This section provides information about authentication, signing in, and signing out when using the ALM Octane SDK and REST API.

For details on granting API access, see the information about setting up API access in the ALM Octane User Guide.

Tip: It is possible for your REST API to navigate to an entity URL when not yet authenticated, such as when copying a URL or sending an email with a link to an entity. After prompting for authentication, you are redirected to the details of the entity.

Specify entity-navigation as follows: 

http[s]://<hostname>/ui/entity-navigation?p=<shared_space_id>/<workspace_id>&entityType=work_item&id=<id>

After authentication, this redirects to: 

http[s]://<hostname>/ui/?p=<shared_space_id>/<workspace_id>#/entity-navigation?entityType=work_item&id=<id>
