Use OAuth 2.0 for all connections
Because we use Federation with an external authentication provider, our users do not know the AAD password of their associated account. Consequently, the Basic (username and password) authentication method will not work for us. Can we convert all Basic auth connection types to use OAuth 2.0 instead?
This idea is currently supported in Nintex Workflow Cloud. As our next generation workflow orchestration platform, we recommend customers to move to NWC. Learn more about NWC and the migration tool here.
SharePoint Online and other Office 365 services are moving to modern authentication and would be nice to have Nintex offer the same versus staying with classic authentication.
We are a Federal agency which is eliminating the use of username/password authentication, switching to PIV cards in compliance with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12. In addition, sending passwords in plain text is bad security practice. OAuth 2.0 for all connections is far preferable.
