The CIC Integration Engine contains an authorization vault, which provides a secure storage location for API keys, tokens, username and passwords, headers, and other info used to authorize calls to external Web Services.
Configure in the Admin Console
Auth Vault is a setting type in the Admin Console/Settings View that allows you to manage and configure server vaults. From this view, you can define refresh tokens, select different authorization types, as well as update and delete vault entries.
Relation to the CIC Cockpit
The creation of a vault entry automatically creates an Application Endpoint that displays in thepage of the CIC Cockpit. Application Endpoints display read-only details that reflect the actual details defined when creating the vault entry.
Several terms are used throughout this topic and will be useful to understand.
Alias: The name that identifies a vault entry. The Alias name is how a Web Service Consumer object knows which auth info to use when making actual calls to the external Web Service.
Vault Entry Environment: Represents different external application environments that you could potentially call with a web service.
