    Token based authentication for Stash's REST API

    Token based authentication for Stash's REST API

    Admin configuration

    User configuration

    Using cURL

    Allows an administrator to control the TTL, access, and secret key for all tokens in the system.

    Users can view and regenerate tokens for their accounts.

    To use cURL with this plugin, just pass in your token and user name with any request to an existing REST API endpoint.

    More details

    Stash's REST API is awesome for admins as well as end users. Personal and team-based automation is pretty easy to do for anyone that is familiar with webservices. Unfortunately, the only auth method a normal end-user can use is basic auth (user/pass in unencrypted Base64 encoding).

    In enterprise settings, a user's password is highly sensitive. Typically, that user has access to many more services than just Stash and hardcoding a password into a script is a really bad practice. This plugin allows a user to generate a random token string to be used instead.

    Administrators have the ability to control the token TTL as well as the amount of access they want to grant through the bare REST API. An admin can also selectively disable the entire token-based auth system.

    Well done. Feature request: set most tokens to expire, but ability to set specific users to never expire.
