Introduction

A Jitterbit Harmony Security Profile governs and secures the consumption of APIs. The profile allows you to secure one API or a group of APIs to be consumed by a specific API consumer or a group of consumers. You can create and assign security profiles based on your organization's specific security and governance requirements.

Multiple independent settings in the profile provide the ability to customize security levels. Using a combination of independent settings allows you to create specific levels of security for specific use cases.

Security Profiles Index

To access the Security Profiles page, log in to the Harmony portal and select the API Manager card. Click on My APIs in the upper left corner and select Security Profiles in the dropdown.

The security profiles index will be displayed, showing a repository of existing API Manager security profiles:

Name: The name of the security profile entered during creation of the profile.

Type: The authentication method (Anonymous, Basic, OAuth 2.0) that will be used to authenticate and access the APIs assigned to this profile.

Environment: The name of the environment selected during creation of the profile. Each security profile applies to only one environment and is used to authenticate only the APIs within the assigned environment.

Description: The optional description of the security profile. The description displays in the security profiles index.

Rate Limit: The number of API hits allowed per minute using the profile to authenticate and access the assigned APIs.
