Spectrum™ Technology Platform
supports two types of authentication for web service requests:
Basic authentication and token authentication. By default, both methods are enabled. If you want
to require web service requests to use token authentication instead of Basic authentication, you
can disable Basic authentication by following these steps.
Note: Be aware that disabling Basic
authentication will cause existing clients to fail. For the Location Intelligence Module, WMS,
WMTS, and WFS clients will either be expecting Basic authentication or no authentication.
Leaving only token-based authentication will likely cause those clients to fail.
