Hi, 

I was wondering if the CData data provider supports Bearer Authentication. The API request I'm trying to make is to a small 3rd party Application.

Regards,

Emil H

On the same boat. Trying to integrate to Okta, apparently uses SSWS authentication to connect. Just regular HTTPS url is not enough. Any help is appreciated.

Hello

All cdata providers that has the OAuth area in them can get an bearer token.

I have a guide for REST here
https://legacysupport.timextender.com/hc/en-us/articles/360034695651-Connect-to-a-REST-API#OAuth 

This applies to pretty much all other providers as well.

So you need to work out if you use client, code or password and then it should be possible to make work.
