Authorization bearer tokens pass client credentials throughout the process to an authentication server to populate the token. The credentials are valid for a fixed interval of approximately 15 minutes. This solution performs Get/Post operations on pre-defined objects to receive secure results.

This solution is a common approach for leveraging authentication and authorization. An example use case is using these techniques to obtain orders through an API call. 

The example process demonstrates the use of an authorization bearer token. In the first branch, the access token is obtained by using HTTP Client Connector.

Each path connects to the Authorization REST by configuring the HTTP Client Connector.
