Authentication in a Workflow

Creating a sequence of calls to obtain a token, save that token as a variable and then use the token in following API calls.

Depending on the configuration of the API security, you may need to obtain a token specific to a sequence of API calls.
This approach should be used with non-standard OAuth configurations.
The easy way to do this is with a workflow. The sequence will be as follows:

Step 1 - make a POST to obtain a token
Step 2 - Parse the returned content to save the token as a variable
Step 3 and beyond - use the saved variable in following API calls as the token


If possible use the Authentication Settings Manager

If possible we highly recommend using the authentication manager which will make it easier to keep the logic of obtaining and managing tokens up to date, separate from the API calls themselves.
