3. Dealing with Authentications

API Fortress can handle just about any sort of authentication scheme your API is using, including simple, oAuth, etc… We have details on that here.

The only authentication that is a problem is one that is specifically built to not allow for automation, though we have taken steps to support those as well. For example, 3-legged OAuth can now be automated using our open-source helper tool called 3loa.

Not only can you build tests for APIs that require different levels of authentication, but we also highly recommend building tests to validate your security flow.
