Basic HTTP Authentication

The RESTful API must undergo Basic HTTP authentication. You need to generate a token and fill in the HTTP request header's token field. This section introduces how to generate a token and perform HTTP authentication.

Step 1 Obtain a Certificate ID and Certificate Key

In the code, enter your certificate ID (restfulId) and certificate key (restfulSecret) information.

Here's how to get a certificate ID and certificate key:

Log in to your Jocloud My Center. Click the account name in the upper right corner and select the API Certificate page from the drop-down list.

Notes:

The certificate ID and certificate key are only for accessing the RESTful API.

Step 2 Generate a Token

Token is a Base64 algorithm-encoded idSecret. Use your certificate ID (restfulId) and certificate key (restfulSecret) to generate a token. In this sample, the token is base64IDSecret.

Sample code:

  • Java
	// Java
	// Fill in the certificate ID and key gotten in My Center on the portal website
	String plainIDSecret = "restfulId:restfulSecret";
	// base64IDSecret is your token value
	String base64IDSecret = new   String(Base64.encodeBase64(plainIDSecret.getBytes("UTF-8")));

Step 3 HTTP Authentication

Format of the token field in the HTTP request header: Basic base64IDSecret.

Sample code:

  • Java
	// Java
	// Send HTTP request
	Request request = new Request.Builder()
	...
		// Fill the obtained token field in the beginning of HTTP request
		.addHeader("token", "Basic base64IDSecret")
	...
