Adding LTPA tokens

You can add a Lightweight Third-Party Authentication (LTPA) token to a SOAP message if you want LPTA token authentication.

Before you begin

Note: An LTPA provider and LTPA identity must be defined in the Physical View of the Architecture School perspective before you can create a token for a SOAP message. For instructions about creating an LTPA provider, see Adding an LTPA provider to the Physical view.

About this task

LTPA is an authentication technology used in IBM® WebSphere® and Lotus® Domino® products.

When you add an LTPA token to a SOAP message in a HCL OneTest™ API project, HCL OneTest API is authenticated automatically when accessing a web service that needs an LTPA authentication token. An LTPA token prevents LTPA authentication errors while testing the message.

Procedure

  1. Create an LTPA identity.
    1. In the Physical view of the Architecture School perspective, click General > Identity.
    2. In the New Identity dialog, complete the following fields:
