REST API Authentication method Follow


What is the  Authentication method to use in REST APIs integration?
I have a python app and want to send print action from it to a custom (per app user) bartender service, should I use NLTM auth method and ask the user to enter his username/password?
I don't think it is the right way due to security issue we'll face 
any help please?

Hello Tasneem,

Thank you for reaching us via our Community Forums!

The REST API supports several types of authentication:

  • Basic Authentication
  • Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA)
  • Windows Challenge/Response (NTLM)

When using Insomnia or Postman to send requests, set the authentication to NLTM.

When using IWA, the account sending the REST requests will need to have the following properties:

  • The user sending the request must have permission to log into the server
  • Users must have permissions to administer integrations as set in the Administration Console

We would recommend you review our documentation on the BarTender REST API:
