External Authentication

Thinfinity® Workspace incorporates a mechanism to validate users in a corporate environment so that the user will not need to authenticate every time they access Thinfinity® Workspace.
How to authenticate against Thinfinity® Workspace from external applications:
The authentication against Thinfinity® Workspace can be done using:
· username and password or
· username and an ApiKey.
Every time you call Thinfinity® Workspace, you can send within its URL the authentication information. The URL format to authenticate this way is presented below:
http[s]://[username]:[password or apikey]@
