Environment Endpoints

On the Endpoints sub-tab, you manage the endpoints for a selected environment.

Restriction: To manage environment endpoints, you must have the Create, Edit, and Delete Environments privilege, which is set in SBM Application Administrator.
Defined endpoints are displayed with the following information:
Column Description

A descriptive name for the endpoint.


The address of the endpoint.


The authentication method used for this endpoint.

After you create an environment, you can add endpoints, such as Web services. You can later modify existing endpoints.

Important: Whenever you change information associated with an endpoint, you must redeploy any affected process apps.

To add an environment endpoint:

  1. Click Create.
  2. Enter the name and URL for the endpoint.
  3. In the Authentication drop-down list, select one of the following options:
    • None

      Select None if the endpoint does not require authentication.

    • HTTP Basic

      Select HTTP Basic if the endpoint points to a Web service that requires Basic Access Authentication and you want to provide the credentials (user name and password).

      Important: The HTTP Basic credentials set in Application Repository for an endpoint override Basic credentials that are set in orchestration workflows. For example, if username joe and password pwd are specified in the orchestration, but Application Repository specifies HTTP Basic with different credentials, the Application Repository credentials are used instead. If you do not want to override the credentials specified in the orchestration workflow, select None in Application Repository.
    • NTLM

      Select NTLM if the endpoint points to a Web service that requires Windows domain credentials. Enter the username, password, and domain name.

    • Security Token

      Select Security Token if the endpoint points to an SBM Web service or other internal endpoint.

    • Oauth 2

      Select OAuth 2 for RESTful calls that use OAuth 2 security. For details on obtaining and specifying the OAuth 2 token that is required, refer to Configuring OAuth 2 Security.

  4. Click Save to save your changes.

To modify an endpoint:

  1. Select an endpoint from the list, and then click Edit.
  2. Modify the name, URL, and authentication method as necessary. Refer to the steps above for adding an endpoint for more information about the authentication options.
  3. Click Save to save your changes.
Note: If you are defining an internal Application EngineWeb service endpoint, select Security Token as the authentication method. This is the optimal authentication method for internal endpoints because the user’s credentials are seamlessly passed to the Web service call without the need to hard code credentials ahead of time.
