Additional OSLC integration services and requirements
Root services provides the entry point for the OSLC service discovery documents. OAuth security is required for OSLC authentication.
Although the root services document is not part of the OSLC specification, it provides the entry point for the OSLC service discovery documents and the configuration URLs that are needed to consume OSLC services.
The root services document is located by a URL, based on the location of the Change and Configuration Management (CCM) server: https://host-name:9443/ccm/rootservices. For example, if the CCM server is installed at http://ccm.example.com/, then the root services document is at https://ccm.example.com:9443/ccm/rootservices.
Security is required for OSLC and is provided by OAuth 1.0a. OAuth is an open protocol that provides secure API authorization in a simple, standard method from desktop and web applications. To access most OSLC URIs, you must be an authenticated user. OAuth authentication is not requiremd for the root services URI. For more information, see the OAuth 1.0a Specification.
