Authentication using System Session ID

Article # 3038075 - Page views: 2


We notice that it is possible to call KTA API methods with the System Session ID. Is there a way to ensure that authentication has been performed first?


A session ID is provided as a result of authentication in KTA. You can pass the System Session ID directly to the API to effectively bypass authentication. Therefore, this is expected behaviour.

KTA offers a variety of authentication methods, such as user name and password, Windows Authentication, Federated Security, etc. Since KTA 7.9, KTA can also use OAuth 2.0.
