Configure adapter resource protection

Learn how to configure MobileFirst OAuth protection for our adapter resources.


Configure the authorization logic for protecting your adapter resources by assigning custom scopes to our resources, or by disabling the default protection of the MobileFirst security framework (see OAuth resource protection).


Configure the protection of your adapter resources by following the outlined procedure for our target development environment:

What to do next

Rebuild your adapter and deploy it to an instance of MobileFirst Server to apply your configuration.
When working with IBM MobileFirst™ Platform Operations Console, remember to refresh the console browser page after you deploy the adapter.

Before moving to production, make sure that the security checks that are contained in your configured scopes are implemented and available for our resources via an adapter that is deployed to the same MobileFirst Server instance as your resource adapter. See Security-checks implementation.
