(Migrated) Title of ws-security doc incorrect

(This message has been automatically imported from the retired mailing list)

Hi.

The title of ws-security create account doc page is incorrect. It says HTTP
basic auth

On the other hand, wouldn’t it have been better to have a unique accounts
section and define for each one which authentication profiles are enabled /
disabled? So it would be easier to add new profiles.

Best regards. Erny

Good catch, I’ve just fixed it.

Right… I thought that when new WSS profiles should be added, they could
go a sub-menu deeper, for instance, right now we have

Security -> Basic Auth
Security -> Technical accounts
Security -> WS-Security

and when a new WSS profile is added, the menu will look like

Security -> Basic Auth
Security -> Technical accounts
Security -> WS-Security -> Username Token
Security -> WS-Security -> New Profile Name

This will be mostly a change in the frontend because the underlying
services themselves will be pretty much left intact.

Is this similar to what you were thinking of?
