Configuring Authentication for the FME Flow Web Services

All workspaces that are run from FME Flow use at least one of the FME Flow Web Services, and these services must authenticate with the user account or security token that requests them. The user account or token must have Run permission on the repository in which the workspace resides, and Access permission to the service.

Note  In versions of FME Flow prior to 2023.0, the guest user account could provide unauthenticated access to the FME Flow Web Services. For security reasons, this feature is removed.

Authenticating with Tokens

A token can provide the credentials required for authentication. We recommend using tokens in conjunction with user accounts that have only the required permissions for their service requests to succeed, and no additional permissions.

Using Directory Server Accounts

If you have imported Authentication Services accounts into FME Flow as users, you can provide those accounts with access to repositories and services. Configure directory server user permissions on the Users page. Alternatively, if your directory server accounts belong to roles, you can configure role access on the Roles page.
