    • Fill out the authentication information based on the authentication type.
      • OAuth2 (Client Credentials Flow)
      • OAuth2 (Authentication Code Flow)
      • Basic Authentication

    If the IP for the Base URL in the Swagger Connection is in the following ranges it will be restricted/error:


    If a the IP of the URL resides in one of these ranges, it can be overridden by the following commands from the customer’s Hero Platform_ sys admin:

    • -Dsecurity.restricted-ip-ranges.0=<ip>/<range>
    • -Dfeatures.restrict-ip-ranges=off
  • To test a Swagger connection, Automation Hero recommends selecting an HTTP method and endpoint that (if possible):

    • doesn’t require any parameters.

    • results a non-html response.

    • uses the same authentication method as the connection.

    If the test method or test endpoint is not configured correctly, the test might produce a false positive or false negative result.

    If there is not an endpoint to use for testing, the connector can still be used in the Flow.

    WARNING: Testing the connection sends a real HTTP request. Avoid the usage of endpoints that modify or trigger actions.
