Simple Security Manager Policy

The Simple Security Manager policy lets you configure a security manager with a username and password that you can define at the policy level.

Prerequisites

This document assumes that you are an API Versions Owner for the API version that you want to manage, or that you are a member of the Organization Administrators role.

How Does This Policy Work?

This policy acts as a simple security manager to be used by policies which require one (such as Basic Authentication policy). It validates only one username and password combination. Usually used for testing/demonstrations purposes.

When setting up this policy, you need to send requests to your APIs using a basic authentication mechanism specifying the username and password that you previously configured.
