    Accessing a third party application API securely

    satyam@spglobal.com Novice

      Hi Team John Reynolds Gopi Gorantala, Jens Goldhammer, Xhevair "Jev" Maskuli,

       

      We are trying to make an integration with our platform to Service Now and trying to use their API to show data here. While we are able to make that connection, the issue is that we have to expose the credentials of authentication in the javascript which can be viewed by folks looking at the code in the browser and just a reverse btoa will give them the credentials. Is there a way we can do this securely?

       

      I know the osapi does not require the credentials to be exposed and we use that in our custom tiles. Do we have something like that for Third party API's too. Any insights would be helpful.

       

      Thanks,

      Satyam.
