Configuring Consumers

Consumers represent an individual or application role that requires access to a service. A Consumer object contains one or more credentials which the individual or application must present in a request in order to gain access. Once a Consumer is defined, an authentication plugin may be added to a Route, Service, or Globally, which defines which Consumers are allowed access and what authentication mechanism is required.

To create a Consumer, select the Add action icon from the Consumers list. To edit an existing Consumer, select it from the list.
