Introduction to Password less Authentication

VIDIZMO users can authenticate themselves using the authentication API without providing the password. Instead, they need to provide Application Id and Client Secret. This Application Id and client secret will be used to authenticate user and return access token as a response, which can later be used to access other authenticated APIs too. To use this password less APIs authentication mechanism, the users will need to create an Authentication App in VIDIZMO portal.

  2. Application ID: This is a unique system-generated ID of the Authentication App with which the application will be used for authentication of users who are supposed to consume the VIDIZMO widgets
  3. Client Secret: This is a unique system-generated secret that will be used in the passwordless authentication process
  4. Expiry: This is the Application's expiry date after which the widgets consuming this application's information will not be able to authenticate the users. You can set the expiry by choosing a date from the calendar.
