      Description

      At the moment the only way to sign into the Explorer is via username/password authentication,
      we suggest adding a token based authentication to that.
      The basic idea is that a you can generate login tokens using the IdentityService, these can
      be used e.g., to generate notification E-Mails with a direct login url, or that another
      application can request such a token via the REST interface so that the user does not
      have to authenticate again.

      Of course certain security measures need to be implemented e.g., limited lifetime/uses of a token.

      We are willing to provide the implementation if it will be included into Activiti.

      Any comments?

        Maybe this should be discussed in the forums first

        The Explorer and REST components are provided with a basic security level. If token-based security is needed this is a custom extension to these components and can best be developed separately from the Activiti project.
