CloudTest supports the OAuth protocol for both HTTP and SOAP targets. OAuth is a security scheme designed to allow one site (consumer site) to include content from another site (provider site) without requiring users to provide individual user names and passwords.
When CloudTest sends an OAuth message, the target-based values are utilized as part of the authorization process. Message responses are examined until the access token has been determined to populate system properties. Subsequent requests are examined for usage of any of these parameters and the corresponding system property (full list below) is used to substitute the necessary updated values.
