    Authorisation for RESTful Webserivce Link to this post

    Hi Everybody,

    on Silverstripe 2.4.x, I'm trying to realize restful Webservice Access on one of the DataObjects of our Web-Project.

    First part was pretty easy, just added

       static $api_access = array(
          'view' => array(
             'ID',
             'Name',
          ),
          'edit' => array(
             'Name',
          ),
       );

    to the DataObject Code. But of course I want to limit access (at least for PUT requests) to authorized users. The Service shall be accessed via an external Script, so I'm thinking of using Basic Auth, with Username & Password transfered within the header of the request.

    How do I get Silverstripe to read / accept this kind of authentication?

    Thanks a lot for a bit of insight

    Kind Regards
    SF
