In the previous tutorials, we learned to install and configure the Simple OAuth module. We also learned how to generate authentication tokens using different grants. In this tutorial, we will learn how to use a token to authenticate a request for a given Drupal user, and:
- Check if a particular route supports a specific type of authentication,
- Send an authentication token, like the ones we acquired in the previous tutorial in order to prove to Drupal that the request is made by a specific user
By the end of this tutorial you should be able to make authenticated requests, as a specific user, to your API.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
