Authenticate user - REST API


My idea is to use Flowable IDM to manage groups and privileges, everyone should be able to create an account and login, but the admin/manager will add the privileges to those who’ll need it.

My question is rather simple:
How do I authenticate that the user has supplied the right password/username upon login, using only the REST API?

After some research I found out that there is an authenticate method for the Java application(?) but is there a similar one for the REST API?


Hey Wirob,

Checking if a password if valid or not is not exposed over the REST API. If you need something like that then I would suggest that you create your own REST API that would invoke the appropriate Java API from Flowable.
