Protect your resources with the Bluemix App User Registry Add-on
In this article, I will show you how to develop an OAuth-protected resource application in IBM Bluemix. With Bluemix, you can develop your applications with OAuth by connecting the Bluemix App User Registry Add-on to your applications and coding endpoints to enable authorization and authentication to secure your resources. The resource application consumes the Mongo service and the Bluemix App User Registry Add-on, and provides a REST service that other client applications can request to consume. The REST service is protected by the App User Registry Add-on, so the client applications must provide the appropriate authorization information. I will also cover how to develop a client application that requires authorization during the request for protected resources. All authorization and authentication processes follow the OAuth 2.0 specification.
