We are pleased to announce general availability of authentication profiles starting from version NtkAS 2.16.9. 

Feature allows to simplify authentication flow by defining a set of actions to take when some event in authentication request is triggered, like created, approved or denied. 

Authentication profiles are defined per each service:

Profile defines all authentication request standard fields:

As you see this allows usage of defined placeholders in curly brackets {}. Custom variables can also be supplied during auth request generation.

Callbacks can be authenticated with HTTP basic authentication, generic header and OAuth 2.0 client credentials.

There can be unlimited number of callbacks for any event:


Callbacks can be any HTTP method with payload in JSON, urlencoded or simple GET requests.

To create authentication request from profile, call the auth method with profile parameter. Optional custom_vars can contain additional values that can be later reused in callbacks and authentication request message. 

POST /api/v3/services/2a435d19-a03d-4ac0-8e0e-d74a7a10e4ef/auth HTTP/1.1

Future versions will include a set of actions when authentication request times out and support for biometric requirement customisation.
