Calling the Webservice API with an access token instead of username + password

Hi,

I was wondering if it was possible to call the Webservice API without using the username and password for an admin user. For example, if we have configured the SAML bridge I would like to use the logged in session belonging to the user in the third party application to authenticate with the YF Webservice API. Ideally this would be an access token for the IAM that the SAML bridge is integrated with that Yellowfin would verify.

Hi, thanks for your answer.

Is this something that will be possible at a later point, or at least with the REST API in 9.x?

Hi,

Just to clarify, I would have to write my own bridge when using the REST API?
