I would like to create a UDS client on an AMX control system to retrieve directory information from the Cisco UCM.
AMX does not however have https. It just has TCP sockets.. no http, https, encryption etc. etc. although these can be faked by creating the request manually
I am wondering:
Is it possible to authenticate using SSO without https?
ie just using REST queries?
Or is the way to do this by using the Standard Basic Authentication method?
Sorry if this is a bit muddled I am just getting to grips with the Cisco stuff.
Best regards and thanks
You have to use HTTPS to communicate with the UDS service. There's no option with either SSO or BasicAuth to avoid using it.
Furthermore once you connect with HTTPS you may have to use basic auth, depending on what information you wish to access.
There are also some private APIs that may be of interest/use. You may want to sniff a Jabber client to see what they are.
