Support for sub realm, module and authentication chain for REST authentication

We’re working on support REST authentication for sub realm, module, and authentication chain.

  1. Support sub realm, add uri=realm%3D<sub realm name> e.g.
    http://www.example.com:8080/opensso/identity/authenticate?
    username=demo&password=changeit&uri=realm%3D/sub

  2. Support authentication module, add uri=module%3D<module name> e.g. http://www.example.com:8080/opensso/identity/authenticate?
    username=demo&password=changeit&uri=module%3DDataStore

  3. Support authentication chain add uri=service%3D<authentication chain name> e.g. http://www.example.com:8080/opensso/identity/authenticate?
    username=demo&password=changeit&uri=service%3DldapService

Hence you can login to a sub realm with a authentication module like this
http://www.example.com:8080/opensso/identity/authenticate?
username=demo&password=changeit&
uri=realm%3D/sub%26module%3DDataStore

This support shall be made available to you soon.
